Call for Papers

PGDay India 2016 will be held in Bengaluru on 26th February 2016.

General Guidelines to follow when submitting your paper

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.

Please send in your proposals by email to papers@pgday.in. Last date is 15th January, 2016.

Note: Since we got a few requests to extend the deadline, the call for papers has been extended to 22nd January, 2016. Please note that there are already more submissions than what we can handle, but please feel free to send your proposal. We are evaluating possibility of having short lightning talks if there are many interesting proposals that we can’t fit in the regular schedule.
