The PGCon 2013 Call for papers is out. It’s been out for over two weeks. Had you heard about it already? If you have not already submitted, please do so.

The deadline for submissions (19 Jan) is just over a month away. That time will fly past. Please don’t leave it to the last minute.

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.

Full details can be found at PGCon 2013 Call for Papers.
