***PGDay Austin 2016 now accepting proposals for talks! *

Join PostgreSQL users and advocates in Austin for a day of PostgreSQL at PGDay Austin 2016, on Saturday, November 12, 2016, at the Austin Galvanize campus <http://www.galvanize.com/campuses/austin-2nd-street-district/> (118 Nueces St. Austin, TX 78701).

Our theme is "Everything's Bigger in Postgres", with a focus on PostgreSQL's role in the community of "Big Data" and Data Science -- deep computing, analytics, and scalability. We encourage content *for all knowledge/experience level*s, and welcome content that speaks to users new to PostgreSQL as well as practical applications and case studies. *W**e welcome any PostgreSQL contributors and users, as well as other external open source software communities* including -- but not limited -- to Python, Django, Rails, JSON, and more to submit a proposal.

Each session will last 45 minutes, with an extra 10 minutes allotted for for Q&As. Depending on response, we may offer dual tracks in the afternoon as well as lightning talks. We are targeting up to 150 attendees, both local and across Texas and the U.S.

*Submission deadline is Wednesday, September 21, 2016* by midnight CST, with notifications to be sent by Monday, September 26. Submit your proposal via this form <https://goo.gl/forms/vKytC7GcNqh2Pd0q1>.

*Registration** will open soon --* it'll be a wonderful opportunity to learn and network, and we'll have some great local food and refreshments provided for attendees, along with a few other surprises!

*Sponsorship opportunitie*s are also available and we encourage your support! Help us keep costs down for attendees as we work to onboard more PostgreSQL supporters, users, and developers, as well as other open source software communities.

*Our Silent Auction *will benefit ChickTech Austin, whose high school program kick-off weekend will be taking place a few blocks away from our event. We welcome donated items and services for this fundraiser.
