Call for Paper

The Call for Papers for PGDay.IT 2015 is now closed.

The conference will be held on 23 Ottobre in Prato, Italy.

We accept two types of proposals (max 45 minutes):

  • Talk
  • Tutorial

Other types of proposals may be considered if adequately motivated.

There will also be a session for Lightning Talks (max 5 minutes each). Lightning talks will be submitted during the conference.

We are looking forward to proposals on any topic related to PostgreSQL. For instance:

  • Developing applications with PostgreSQL
  • Managing systems based on PostgreSQL
  • PostgreSQL success stories
  • PostgreSQL tools
  • Products related to PostgreSQL
  • Migrating to PostgreSQL
  • Optimisation
  • Scalability
  • Replication
  • Benchmarks

To submit your proposal(s), write an e-mail to [email protected] . The deadline for submissions is 23:59 (UTC+2) on 8 August 2015; proponents of selected talks will be notified by 25 August 2015.

Each proposal must include the following information:

  • Proposal type (talk/tutorial)
  • Title
  • Abstract, including the motivation
  • Language (Italian/English)
  • Author names and affiliations
  • A short profile of each author
  • Speaker(s) name(s)
  • Other conferences (past or future) to which the same proposal has been submitted
  • Resources required for the presentation (internet access, video, audio, etc.)
  • Additional resources provided to attendees, if any (slides, code, etc.)

Confirmed speakers will be offered a free entrance to the conference, including lunch and coffee breaks. Normally we do not refund other expenses, such as travel or accommodation; however we may consider specific cases, in which case a detailed request must be included in the submitted proposal.

Speakers will prepare all the resources required for their presentation(s); slides must be made available to the conference attendees using a suitable licence (e.g. Creative Commons).

Confirmed speakers will register to the conference using the credentials that will be communicated by ITPUG in due course.

Proposals will be evaluated by a technical committee led by Matteo Durighetto (ITPUG, Miriade).

The committee may request additional information wherever appropriate. All presentations must be prepared according to the guidelines which will be sent to confirmed speakers.
