Proposals can be quite simple. We do not require academic-style papers. 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 some 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 - The latest PostgreSQL features and 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 2016 Proposal acceptance begins 19 Jan 2017 Proposal acceptance ends 19 Feb 2017 Confirmation of accepted proposals NOTE: the call for lightning talks will go out very close to the conference.
