GStreamer Conference 2014

16-17 October 2014 · Congress Centre Düsseldorf · Düsseldorf, Germany

Dusseldorf at night (media harbour)

The 5th GStreamer Conference will again be co-located with the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE), LinuxCon Europe, and the Linux Plumbers Conference. The event will be held on Thursday and Friday 16-17 October 2014 at the Congress Centre Düsseldorf (CCD) in Düsseldorf, Germany.


The GStreamer Conference is a conference for developers, decision-makers, community members, industry partners, and anyone else interested in the GStreamer multimedia framework or Open Source and cross-platform multimedia.

Call for Papers

The call for papers is now open and talk proposals can be submitted.

The deadline for talk proposals is Wednesday 23 July 2014.

The initial submission needs to be only a couple of sentences or paragraphs describing the talk you want to give and the desired length of your talk (please allow for 5-10 minutes of questions at the end as well).

Talks can be on almost anything multimedia related, ranging from talks about applications to challenges in the lower levels in the stack or hardware.

Talk slots will be available in varying durations from 20 minutes up to an hour. We want to hear from you, what you are working on, what you are using GStreamer for, what difficulties you have encountered and how you solved them, what your plans are.

Please send all proposals to

Showcase or Lightening 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 5-10 minute mini-talk for our lightening talk/showcase event?

Simply send a quick mail to the e-mail address above to reserve your slot.

Schedule and speakers list

The conference schedule and speaker list will be available at a later date once the call for papers has closed.

There will be a social event for attendees on Thursday 16 October 2014 in the evening (to be confirmed).

Who should join?

Anyone interested in open source cross-platform multimedia is encouraged to join us at the GStreamer Conference 2014. Whether you are a hobbyist or a student interested in the field of multimedia, or working for a company using or looking to use GStreamer in their products, this is the perfect event for you to network at and to learn more about the latest technological breakthroughs in and around GStreamer. The talks will target both developers and managers.


Registration is now open and will stay open until the conference.

There will be separate registration options for both professionals and for students and hobbyists:

Professional 250 USD (until 31 July)
Professional 350 USD (from 1 August)
Student/hobbyist 100 USD

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, the general rule is that if your company pays for you or sponsors you, you are a professional, and if you personally pay you are a student 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 sponsorship package.
