The Firebird Foundation is seeking submissions from Firebird users and developers on the theme of "Firebird in the Enterprise". A session submission should have a title and at least 200 words outlining the main points of your talk.
A session will last for 50 minutes plus 10 minutes for turnaround and questions. If your talk takes more than a single session, then it should span multiple sessions. If your session is especially popular you may be asked to repeat it.
You can submit a session draft directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions also please contact email@example.com
Submissions must be made by the deadline of Midnight July 1st, 2016. Once received there will be a review of the submitted papers and authors will then be informed which papers have been accepted or rejected.
Publication of Papers (after the conference)
Each selected speaker will be expected to turn in a technical paper in electronic format for each abstract topic originally approved.
All illustrations and graphics pertaining to each paper must also be submitted. The papers should contain enough detail to enable a reader to fully understand the topic without benefit of a physical presentation. Speakers may also submit samples of code and/or presentation slides.
All accepted papers will be published electronically after the conference. By submitting materials to the Firebird conference, you grant the Firebird Foundation permission to use, reproduce, audio/video record and distribute your materials.
The 13th Firebird Developers' Day (FDD) will be held in Piracicaba - SP, Brazil on July 9th. This is the biggest conference in the world devoted to the Firebird RDBMS, with an average of 400 attendees. During all the day long, attendees can participate in several sessions presenting subjects of extreme interest for Firebird users. With the recent release of Firebird 3, this year we will have several talks about some of its new features, especially focusing on performance and security. The attendees also have the chance to buy Firebird tools with huge discounts, thanks to our sponsors.
FDD is mostly a Portuguese speakers conference, although there is always the presence of some international speaker (with translation). This year, we have confirmed the presence of Alexey Kovyazin, CEO of IBSurgeon.
Registration is already open — the price rises with the conference proximity, so registering now is a good idea to save money. During the registration process, subscribers have the chance to donate any amount to the Firebird Foundation.
