GStreamer Conference 2015

8-9 October 2015 · The Convention Centre Dublin · Dublin, Ireland

The 6th GStreamer Conference will again be co-located with the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) and LinuxCon Europe. The event will be held on Thursday and Friday 8-9 October 2015 at the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) in Dublin, Ireland.


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. Speakers will be notified whether their talk has been accepted shortly.

Lightning talks may still be proposed.

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

Simply send a quick mail to above to reserve your slot (subject to availability). There is no deadline for Lightning Talk submissions, slots will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Social Event

We plan to again organise a social event for registered attendees on Thursday 8 October 2015 in the evening.

Who should attend?

Anyone interested in open source cross-platform multimedia is encouraged to join us at the GStreamer Conference 2015. 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 275 USD incl. lunch (until 31 July)
Professional 385 USD incl. lunch (from 1 August)
Student/hobbyist 100 USD incl. lunch

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 their sponsorship package.
