PGBR 2013: Call for Papers

PGBR is the major portuguese-speaking PostgreSQL conference. It is the biggest PostgreSQL event in Americas. We're in the fifth edition. This year the conference will be outside Sao Paulo State. It will take place at Amazon Area (Porto Velho, Rondônia). It is scheduled to be held from August 15 to 17, 2013.

I was at Porto Velho for a PGDay 2009 -- invited by Luis Bueno. It was a unique opportunity to meet people that I've never imagined that was using Postgres in their projects. Of course, I can't miss a ride in Rio Madeira waters and relish a typical fish in a sauce.

Be sure to submit your proposals until March, 15, 2013 at 23:59 BRST (for foreigners) and May, 3, 2013 (for residents). Check the CFP at The proposals could be in three languages: Portuguese, English or Spanish  Also, you can choose among lecture, tutorial, hacker talk, lighting talk and academic panel (only in Portuguese).

New this year, we are having training courses taught by well-known community members.

Stay tuned!
