Erlang contributions are very welcome at BOB!

BOB Conference 2020

"What happens when we use what's best for a change?"

Berlin, February 28

Call for Contributions

Deadline: November 8, 2019

You are actively engaged in advanced software engineering methods,

implement ambitious architectures and are open to cutting-edge

innovation? Attend this conference, meet people that share your goals,

and get to know the best software tools and technologies available

today. We strive to offer a day full of new experiences and

impressions that you can use to immediately improve your daily life as

a software developer.

If you share our vision and want to contribute, submit a proposal for

a talk or tutorial!

NOTE: The conference fee will be waived for presenters. Travel

expenses will not be covered (for exceptions see "Speaker Grants").

Speaker Grants


BOB has Speaker Grants available to support speakers from groups

under-represented in technology. We specifically seek women speakers

and speakers who are not be able to attend the conference for

financial reasons.



The program committee offers shepherding to all speakers. Shepherding

provides speakers assistance with preparing their sessions, as well as

a review of the talk slides.



We are looking for talks about best-of-breed software technology, e.g.:

- functional programming

- persistent data structures and database

- event-based modelling and architectures

- types

- formal methods for correctness and robustness

- abstractions for concurrency and parallelism

- metaprogramming

- probabilistic programming

- math and programming

- controlled side effects

- beyond REST and SOAP

- effective abstractions for data analytics

- ... everything really that isn’t mainstream, but you think should be.

Presenters should provide the audience with information that is

practically useful for software developers.

We're especially interested in experience reports.

Other topics are also relevant, e.g.:

- introductory talks on technical background

- overviews of a given field

- demos and how-tos



We accept proposals for presentations of 45 minutes (40 minutes talk +

5 minutes questions), as well as 90 minute tutorials for

beginners. The language of presentation should be either English or


Your proposal should include (in your presentation language of choice):

- An abstract of max. 1500 characters.

- A short bio/cv

- Contact information (including at least email address)

- A list of 3-5 concrete ideas of how your work can be applied in a developer's daily life

- additional material (websites, blogs, slides, videos of past presentations, …)
