The 10th GStreamer Conference will take place

in Lyon, France.
This is just after the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE),

decision-makers, industry partners, researchers, students and anyone else

Who should attend?
Anyone interested in open source cross-platform multimedia is encouraged
to join us at the GStreamer Conference 2019!
Whether you are a hobbyist, app developer, researcher or student interested
in the field of multimedia, or working for a company that is 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 developments and project news,
and to meet developers as well as the wider community.
Call for Papers
The call for papers is now open for talk proposals and lightning talks.
Please submit your talk now!
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 at least 5 minutes for 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 have one of the following durations: 20 minutes, 30 minutes,
or 45 minutes, including questions. If you need more time than that we might
be able to accommodate that as well, please get in touch to discuss details.
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, what you like, what you dislike, how to improve things!
Please send all proposals to email@example.com.
You do not need to subscribe to the list, and you should receive a confirmation that your proposal has been received within a couple of days.
Registration is expected to open in late August. Please stay tuned for updates.
There will be separate registration options for both professionals and for students and hobbyists:
|Professional (Early Bird)
220 EUR (ca. 250 USD) (limited in number and available only until tbd)
330 EUR (ca. 375 USD) (regular)
500+ EUR (ca. 565 USD) (for those who want to give a little bit extra to the GStreamer project)
All tickets include lunch at the venue on both conference days
as well as access to the social event on Thursday evening.
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!
Registration is not open yet. It is expected to open in August.
Showcase or Lightning Talks
There will again be opportunities for short lightning talks for those who
do not wish to present a full talk, but just want to showcase something
they're working on, or present a problem or challenge they are facing or
have solved, and that they think might be interesting for others to hear
Want to submit a ca. 5-minute mini-talk for our lightning talk/showcase event?
Simply send a quick mail to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
