Call for papers

PGCon 2017 will be held 25-26 May 2017, 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 2017.

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.
