Nextcloud Conference 2019: Call for papers

Nextcloud Conference 2019 is coming!

Five months from now, on September 14-15, our annual Nextcloud Conference will take place at Technical University Berlin. This is our opportunity to get together and make Nextcloud awesome (it already is, of course). Come and share with us what you’ve been working on: We want to hear about anything Nextcloud related! Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th will be dedicated to talks, workshops and keynotes (and of course, a great party!) and a Contributor Week will happen on the days around the Conference, from September 13th to 20th. We are hands-on people so make sure to bring your laptop!

What’s the plan?

Our event is like one of our roughly bi-monthly hack weeks on steroids, taking place in bustling Berlin at the Technical University. Think intensive discussions and coding combined with nice drinks & food, only interrupted by good parties!


On Friday we will be busy working, coding, designing, discussing and working on the future of private, federated, secure cloud technology! Bring your ideas, laptop & get designing and coding with us. We will also offer some workshops as a kick off for the weekend event!

If you want to build the next great Nextcloud app, or just meet the people Who Get It Done, join us!

Saturday and Sunday

On Saturday and Sunday we kick off each day with some inspirational keynote talks in the morning, followed by a technical talk after lunch. Then, it’s time for the traditional Nextcloud lightning talks and a workshop session!

While we have yet to announce keynote speakers you should stay tuned for some big news!

And on Saturday evening, of course, we will host our traditional party.

Monday – Friday

We will go back to what we do best: reflecting upon Nextcloud and getting our hands dirty!

On Monday, while we’re hacking at the Technical University, our Enterprise Day will take place at the Park Inn hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz. You can read more about that event here and get tickets for the Nextcloud Enterprise Day here.

Get ready…

As of today, registration for the conference is open and you can get yourself signed up right here or first learn more on our conference page. We’ll keep registration open until a few days before the event but the sooner you get your ticket, the better we can plan for great food for everyone!

Here comes the Call for Papers!

Our call for papers is now open. We invite you to submit a proposal if you want to present or share something related to Nextcloud. Your proposal should be simple and short: Just tell us in a few words about what you want to share with the other Nextclouders. Talks are 5 minutes, slides in PDF (to be submitted at least 1 week in advance) and in a pre-arranged order so we can go through the talk without any fiddling in between with projectors or such. Workshops can be between 1 and 4 hours long and are meant to teach new skills (Write your first app! Security! Performance optimization!) or get things done together (implementing a new API across clients! Build a new app!). Note that most workshops will take place on Friday and not during the weekend!

If you have something to share on stage, don’t be afraid, the talks are very low-key and low-stress: Anyone can present and the conference team is happy to help you practice a bit if you’re worried about talking in public. You will be among friends, no pressure!

Want to get a feel for the talks? Check out the video recordings from last year on YouTube.

We would like all talks to be submitted before August 1st so we can put a full schedule together. Still, the sooner the better.

If you have any questions, you can reach us on Twitter, Facebook, or on the forums.

We look forward to hearing from you!
