Call for Papers
The call for papers is now closed and talk proposals can no longer be
submitted. Lightning talks may still be proposed though.
Showcase or Lightning Talks
If you don't think you have enough material for a full talk, but perhaps
just want to showcase something you're working on, or present a problem or
challenge you are facing or have solved, and that you think might be
interesting for others to hear about, why not submit a 5-8 minute
mini-talk for our lightning talk/showcase event?
Simply send a quick mail to email@example.com above to reserve your slot (subject to availability). Lightning Talk submissions are still accepted.
There will be a social event for registered attendees on

||350 USD (from 1 August)
The registration fee includes continental breakfast and lunch at the venue
on both conference days.
For those uncertain about whether to register as a professional or hobbyist,

If in doubt drop us a mail or just register as hobbyist. The important
thing is that you'll make it to the conference!
Speakers who do a longer presentation will receive a discount code, so if
you have submitted a talk or plan to submit a talk you may want to wait
with registration until a decision has been made as to whether your
proposal has been accepted.
Sponsors will receive a number of free registrations as part of the
There are a few other events taking place alongside or just before the
GStreamer Conference on October 16-17 this year, so if you are making
your way to Düsseldorf you might want to consider combining the GStreamer
Conference with some of the other events.
This year's conference will take place in
the capital city of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and centre
of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan area.
Düsseldorf airport (DUS) is the third largest airport in Germany with good
regional and international connections. Frankfurt/Main Airport (FRA),
Germany's primary international hub airport, is just 75-90 minutes away by
direct train. Some carriers offer fly+rail through tickets to Düsseldorf
central station (airport code QDU) via Frankfurt.
The venue is a bit outside of town, but not too far away, and easily
reachable by car, taxi and public transport (see below).
The Altstadt (Old Town)
district in the centre is renowned for its bars, restaurants, shops,
museums and galleries.
The conference will take place in rooms 15 and 16 of the
CCD Congress Center
Düsseldorf, which is located in the south east corner of the
'Messe Düsseldorf' (i.e. the Düsseldorf fair/exhibition center) area, which
itself is located a bit outside the city center but within easy reach of
it. A taxi from the Altstadt should take ca. 10 minutes and cost around 12 EUR,
a taxi to/from the airport should be roughly the same.
The venue is served directly by
bus route 722
which zigzags from the central station (Hauptbahnhof = Düsseldorf Hbf)
through parts of the city centre and terminates directly in front of the
venue (every 12 mins or so). Bus route 896 connects directly to and from
Düsseldorf Airport (every 15 mins between 8.00h-19.30h).
Underground/metro lines U78/U79 may often provide a faster and more frequent
connection to/from the centre and also pass near the venue at stop
"Messe Ost/Stockumer Kirchstr.", from which it is a 10-15 minute walk to
the venue (ca. 1km, just over half a mile). Alternatively, there are a number
of busses (722, 896, and others) which will take you to the venue from there.
This is just a small selection of hotels which may or may not be suitable.
Düsseldorf is an international business centre and tourist destination
and as such has many hotels and hostels in all price categories. The below
is merely a small selection, you can find more using the usual booking
engines. 'Stadtmitte' (city centre) north west of the central station
(Düsseldorf Hbf) towards the 'Altstadt' (old town) might be a convenient
area to be in, as it's close to the bars and restaurants of the Altstadt and
the U78/U79 metro that will take you to the venue or the centre also passes
Hilton and Radisson Blue Scandinavia
The Linux Foundation has negotiated a discounted rate
of €149 ($195) and €143 ($188) per night incl. taxes at the
Hilton Düsseldorf and the Radisson Blue Scandinavia Düsseldorf. Both are
located within easy reach (but not necessarily walking distance) of both
the venue and the Altstadt and close to U78/U79 metro stops. GStreamer
conference attendees may make use of these rates. Those looking for
something more luxurious will find something suitable near the
These hotels are centrally located and at the time of writing had a
reaonable number of rooms left, but there are many smaller hotels in
the area which may be even better located or provide better value:
Keep in mind that there will also be a breakfast buffet at the venue.
- Motel One Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof
- Mercure Hotel Düsseldorf City Centre
- ibis Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof
- Hotel Prinz Anton
- Novum Business Hotel Madison Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof
