Call for Presentations open

This is to announce the opening of the Berlin Buzzwords 2010 call for presentations. Berlin Buzzwords is the first conference on scalable and open search, data processing and data storage in Germany, taking place in Berlin.

The event will comprise presentations on scalable data processing. We invite you to submit talks on the topics:

Why "Buzzwords"?

The question that most often reaches us is for the reason for the name of Berlin Buzzwords. Well, when creating the first sketches of the conferences we quickly noticed that just by naming projects and topics of interest we were tossing around a good amount of buzzwords that are currently hot when talking about highly scalable systems. Joking around, the name Berlin Buzzwords appeared.

Connect with Berlin Buzzwords

If you would like to connect with Berlin Buzzwords and stay up to date, we are now available on several social networks: Join our Berlin Buzzwords Facebook group to get in touch with speakers and other attendees. Follow us on Twitter to get informed about updates and news.
