Call for papers

PGCon 2009 will be held 21-22 May 2009, 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 2009.

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, unique or complex ways in which PostgreSQL are used
  • migration of production systems to PostgreSQL
  • data warehousing with PostgreSQL
  • tuning PostgreSQL for different work loads
  • replicating data on top of PostgreSQL
  • hacking the PostgreSQL code
  • PostgreSQL derivatives and forks
  • applications built around PostgreSQL
  • tuning PostgreSQL for different work loads
  • tuning and benchmarking
  • case studies and howtos
  • location-aware software with PostGIS
  • emerging features
  • research and teaching with PostgreSQL
  • things the PostgreSQL project could do better

Both users and developers are encouraged to share their experiences.
