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

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


Click here for the conference schedule.


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.

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.


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 (Early Bird) 219 EUR (ca. 250 USD) (sold out)
Professional (Regular) 330 EUR (ca. 375 USD) (regular)
Professional (Supporter) 500+ EUR (ca. 565 USD) (for those who want to give a little bit extra to the GStreamer project)
Student/Hobbyist/Community Voluntary contribution
Speaker Free

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!

Showcase or Lightning Talks

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.

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.

Join us for some drinks and/or food at tbd. Details to be confirmed at a later time.
