The event will comprise presentations on scalable data processing. We invite you to submit talks on the topics:

Please include your name, bio and email, the title of the talk, a brief abstract in English language. Please indicate whether you want to give a short (30min) or long (45min) presentation and indicate the level of experience with the topic your audience should have (e.g. whether your talk will be suitable for newbies or is targeted for experienced users.)
The presentation format is short: either 30 or 45 minutes including questions. We will be enforcing the schedule rigorously.
