The 10th GStreamer Conference took place on Thursday and Friday 31 October - 1 November 2019 at L'Embarcadère in Lyon, France.

This was just after the Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE), but not officially co-hosted with it and at a different venue in Lyon.

This years conference is over, but all the talks can be viewed online at thanks to our recording partner Ubicast.

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

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 about.

Want to 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.

Call for Papers

The call for papers is now closed and talk proposals can no longer be submitted. Anyone who has submitted a talk proposal should have received an e-mail letting them know whether their proposal has been accepted.

Lightning talks may still be proposed.

Social Events

Wednesday: Welcome drinks and/or food

Join us for some drinks and/or food at Ninkasi Guillotière (2 Place Antonin Jutard, 69003 Lyon) from 19.00h!

Food and drinks will be available for purchase, credit cards should be accepted.

There should be some tables reserved for us in our name. Note that there are multiple Ninkasi in Lyon, this is not the same as Thursday's one

Thursday: Social Event with Food and Drinks at Ninkasi Saint-Paul

Our main social event will be on Thursday at Ninkasi Saint-Paul from ca. 19.00-19.30 until late. Food and drinks will be provided (thanks to our sponsors!), including some vegetarian/vegan options.

Ninkasi Saint Paul is located on 5 Rue Octavio Mey at the northern end of Lyon's historic Old Town district.

Note that there are multiple Ninkasi in Lyon, we'll be at the Saint Paul one.

How to get there from L'Embarcadère:

  • on foot: should be a nice walk, 30-35 minutes
  • by public transport: best to check Google Maps. Metro from Perrache to Hôtel de Ville - Louis Pradel (4 stops north) might save you some walking.
  • by Lime scooter: faster than on foot, probably!
  • by taxi/uber: should be a ca. 10 minute ride depending on traffic, perhaps 7-15 EUR or so

Please don't forget to bring your badge. (If you'd like to bring a +1 please get in touch, we may be able to arrange that.)

We will have two private areas at the venue - upstairs and downstairs, but part of the venue around the bar will be open to the public. There won't be a cloakroom where you can leave your jackets/bags and neither we nor the bar will take responsibility for any lost or damaged items, so you may want to drop off your gear at the hotel before you head there.

Concurrent conferences

There are a few other events taking place alongside or just before the GStreamer Conference on 31 October / 1 November this year, so if you are making your way to Lyon you might want to consider combining the GStreamer Conference with some of the other events.

Embedded Linux Conference Europe (ELCE) 28-30 October 2019

GStreamer hackfest

There will be a hackfest just after the conference, on Saturday and Sunday 2-3 November 2019. The hackfest will take place at Epitech, Lyon.

Please add yourself to the wiki page if you plan on attending the hackfest, so we have a rough idea of the number of people to expect. Mail Tim or Sebastian or pop onto the #gstreamer IRC channel if you don't have editing permissions for the wiki.

Everyone is welcome to attend, whether you added yourself to the list or not, so if you're around just pop in and say hello.

GStreamer hackfests are fairly informal, people mostly just sit around, drink coffee, discuss things, ask questions, and hack on whatever they feel like.
