I'd like to announce that the 7th year of "Prague PostgreSQL Developers
Day" conference organized by CSPUG (Czech and Slovak PostgreSQL Users
Group), will be held on February 6, 2014 at Faculty of Mathematics and
Physics, Charles University (Malostranske namesti 25, Prague).
The location is the same as in the previous two years, and we'd like to
thank to MFF for providing the premises for free.
The conference website is http://www.p2d2.cz/ (czech language only), but
feel free to contact us by e-mail at .
***** Call for Papers *****
Starting today, the "call for papers" is open, and we'll accept talks
until January 3 (which is Friday).
Majority of the talks will be in czech language, but we're looking for
one or two english-speaking guest. We can offer covering travel and
hotel expenses up to ~ 500 EUR (should be enough for 2 nights in a hotel
and air ticket from around Europe).
So if you'd like to present something interesing and related to
PostgreSQL at the conference, send us some basic info at .
Especially we need this:
* contact info (name, phone, company)
* topic of the session (abstract, what is the goal, etc.)
* expected length (usually 40 minutes)
The conference is targetted at users / developers, so we're interested
mainly in suitable sessions. Let us list several interesting areas just
* practical usage of PostgreSQL (new or less known features etc.)
* new, unique and unconventional ways to use PostgreSQL
* problems when deploying PostgreSQL
* hacking PostgreSQL code
* other open source databases
This list definitely is not comprehensive - there are many other
