Call For Papers

After seven successful sessions dedicated to the new features of PostgreSQL 9.0 (February 2011), to PostGIS (June 2011 & September 2014), to replication systems (February 2012), to migration from Oracle to PostgreSQL (October 2012), to PostgreSQL performance (March 2013) and to our 10th anniversary, in September 2015, we'd like to announce that the 8th PostgreSQL Session will be held on September 22th, 2016, in Lyon, France.

This year, another place, but always the same format! Indeed, Dalibo and Oslandia organize together one day of lectures dedicated to PostgreSQL and PostGIS.

We're launching a call for papers for this event. You may now submit your talks, in English or in French. Each talk should last 30 minutes (questions included). We are interested in any talks on the following subjects:

PostgreSQL :

  • What's New in PostgreSQL
  • Use cases
  • Migration to PostgreSQL
  • Performance Tuning
  • Backup and Restore
  • High-Availability
  • Data Warehouse / Big Data

PostGIS :

  • Advanced spatial analysis with PostgreSQL/PostGIS
  • PointCloud Data and/or 3D with PostgreSQL/PostGIS
  • Performances improvements with PostgreSQL/PostGIS

Talks can be either: a case study, a Proof of Concept, a tutorial, a benchmark, a presentation of a new feature, etc. Of course, we're open to propositions on any other migration related topics (monitoring, hardware, replication, etc.) !

The submission deadline is May 20, 2016.

You can now send your proposals to call-for-paper@postgresql-sessions.org

Please give us a little information about yourself and your talk, such as:

  • First Name and Last Name
  • Twitter Account (if any)
  • Company
  • Short Biography (contributions to the PostgreSQL community)
  • Talk title
  • Talk abstract
  • Any specific needs

Slides should have a free licence (Creative Commons BY-ND 3.0 or compatible), and sent to Dalibo. This day will be filmed, and all the lectures will be recorded and published after the Session. By sending a proposal, you agree to be recorded and waive any compensation for it. The selected speakers not living in France will be reimbursed for travel and one night accomodation.

See you in Lyon in September !
