PostgreSQL Conference East is being held at historic Drexel University
on April 3rd through 5th 2009 . This is a community conference and the
proceeds benefit United States PostgreSQL. This is the second call for
papers. 

The call for papers ends Feb 23rd and speakers will be notified on the
27th. You may submit your talk here: 

http://www.postgresqlconference.org . 

We are looking for a wide range of topics. Can you speak on any of the
below topics? What about a different topic? As long as it is centered
around PostgreSQL we want to hear about it.

The generic call is below but it would be fantastic if we could get some
python folks to talk about working PostgreSQL from Python or particular
challenges that are faced by supported PostgreSQL with Python.

Hacker topics:
MVCC
C Function development
Writing Procedural Languages
Creating types
The planner
Optimization tips
Explaining the process model

DBA topics:
Backing up PostgreSQL
Understanding and Configuring Autovacuum
Normalization
Trigger Happy (how to use triggers ;)
PITR -- happiness is a shipped transaction log
User / Groups / Roles
Security

End User development:
Web Frameworks with PostgreSQL
   Pylons
   Grails
   Rails
   Cake
   Turbo Gears
   Django

Solutions:

  Do you have a successful case study to present? 
  How did you solve a problem with PostgreSQL?
  Do you have an Open Source product that runs on PostgreSQL?

As always we let the presenters drive the feel of the conference. If you
have an itch, let's figure out how to scratch it (as long as it is with
PostgreSQL). Submit your paper today:
