Call for Papers
Our Call for Papers is open!
The PostgreSQL Development Conference is a conference focused on PostgreSQL development. Below is a list of topics to consider submitting to the CFP:
- Upcoming PostgreSQL feature development
- Recently committed features to PostgreSQL
- Community building topics
- Technical ideas from other software/communities that are applicable to PostgreSQL
- PostgreSQL development process
- PostgreSQL ecosystem concerns
Conference sessions are 50 minutes. We recommend submitting a presentation that you can complete in 40-45 minutes, leaving time for questions. Describe your proposed session in a few paragraphs.
In addition to the normal 50 minute sessions, the conference will include a new type of session this year called workshops. Workshop sessions will run for double the time of a normal session (110 minutes) and are meant to facilitate educational content that is more in-depth or interactive than the 50 minute format allows.
To submit a workshop session, please indicate this clearly in your session proposal. A workshop proposal is more likely to be accepted if the description is especially detailed or you provide a link to a previous instance of such a workshop. We are also looking for an element of attendee participation.
Given that this is an experimental format, we will only be selecting one or two workshop sessions. As such, we recommend you also submit a 50 minute version of any proposed workshop session. Some examples of the types of workshop sessions we are imagining include:
- Interactive step-by-step demonstration of data corruption debugging
- Instructional session on the patch review process including attendee small group participation
The deadline for submitting a proposal is 2024-01-15 at midnight PDT and all authors will be contacted by 2024-01-31. If your presentation is selected, you will get free registration for the conference. If your presentation is not selected, you will get a second chance to register at the early bird rate even though it will have expired at that point.
