Postgres Open: Call for Proposals

Postgres Open welcomes your talks and workshops for our conference.

We're delighted to open our call for papers for the 2011 conference. Submit a proposal!

Talks should be oriented towards the business or development user of PostgreSQL, and should have substantial technical content.

We are looking for six kinds of talks:

  • Briefing (20min): A non-technical presentation about a case study, or a new product or service, or a very short technical presentation about a single technique or tool.
  • Scaling (50min): experiences, tools and technical details of how you scaled PostgreSQL to meet unusual challenges of high throughput, big data, or both.
  • Products (50min): technical presentations on your PostgreSQL-related product or project, either open source or proprietary. These should cover both the "how" and the "why" of usage.
  • HOWTOs (50min): Brief DBA or developer-oriented presentations of how to solve a problem, accomplish a task, or acheive a goal with PostgreSQL and related tools. This includes performance tuning, application development, database architecture, and features.
  • Innovations (50min): Presentations on new PostgreSQL features and related projects or ones in development.
  • Case Studies (50min): Detailed stories on how a company or organization accomplished extraordinary things with PostgreSQL, or how they migrated from another DBMS.
  • Workshops (3 hours): hands-on tutorials which thoroughly ground attendees in a particular technology, technique, product or tool.

Call will end July 8, 2011 at 11:59pm Pacific time.

But you don't have to wait. Submit a proposal today!
