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 closed and talk proposals can no longer be submitted.

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 5-10 minute mini-talk for our lightning talk/showcase event?

Simply send a quick mail to above to reserve your slot (subject to availability). Lightning Talk submissions are still accepted.

Social Event

There will be a social event for registered attendees on Thursday 16 October 2014 in the evening (details 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.

Sign up for the GStreamer Conference here

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.
