PGCon 2020 will be held 27-28 May 2020, in Ottawa. We are now requesting proposals for presentations. We do not require academic or formal papers. If you wish to submit a formal paper, you are welcome to, but it is not required.
Please follow the instructions for submitting a proposal to PGCon 2020.
Please submit all proposals through https://www.pgcon.org/events/pgcon_2020/callforpapers/
If you are doing something interesting with PostgreSQL, please submit a proposal. You might be one of the backend hackers or work on a PostgreSQL related project and want to share your know-how with others. You might be developing an interesting system using PostgreSQL as the foundation. Perhaps you migrated from another database to PostgreSQL and would like to share details. These, and other stories are welcome. Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.
Here are a few ideas to jump start your proposal process:
- novel ways in which PostgreSQL is used
- migration of production systems from another database
- data warehousing
- tuning PostgreSQL for different work loads
- replication and clustering
- hacking the PostgreSQL code
- PostgreSQL derivatives and forks
- applications built around PostgreSQL
- benchmarking and performance engineering
- case studies
- location-aware and mapping software with PostGIS
- PostgreSQL features in development
- research and teaching with PostgreSQL
- things the PostgreSQL project could do better
- integrating PostgreSQL with 3rd-party software
Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.
The schedule is:
|1 Dec 2019||Proposals acceptance begins|
|19 Jan 2020||Proposals acceptance ends|
|19 Feb 2020||Authors of accepted proposals contacted|
NOTE: the call for lightning talks will go out very close to the conference. Do not submit lightning talks proposals until then.
Recording of the talks
We have taken video of talks in the past and plan to do so in the future. They are made freely available at no charge.
NOTE: In order for recording to occur, you must not use the computer located within the podium. i.e. use your own laptop, not the venue-supplied computer.
We hope the following answers a few frequently asked questions.
- If your paper is accepted, you are expected to present your paper in person.
- There will be a digital projector available in each lecture room.
- There will be a wireless LAN available at the conference.
- What constitutes a proposal? Here are the proposals from our last conference. We will also require a short biography.
- If you wish to email your tutorial attendees, please send the email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will forward it to the attendees.
