Percona Live 2016 Call for Papers Open! Introducing: Community Voting

The Call for Papers for the fifth annual Percona Live Data Performance Conference and Expo (formerly MySQL Conference and Expo) taking place April 18-21, 2016, in Santa Clara, California, is now officially open!

Ask yourself… “Do I have…”


  • Fresh ideas?
  • Enlightening case studies?
  • Insight on best practices?
  • In-depth technical knowlege?

If the answer to any of these is “YES,” then you need to submit your proposal for a chance to speak at Percona Live 2016. Speaking is a great way to broaden not only the awareness of your company with an intelligent and engaged audience of software architects, senior engineers and developers, but also your own!


This year, the conference will feature a variety of formal tracks, including New and Trending Topics, Big Data, Analytics, Security, Scalability and Performance, Architecture and Design, Operations and Management, Development, Case Studies, and Sponsored Talks. Speaker proposals are welcome on a variety of related technologies, including MySQL®, MongoDB®, Amazon Web Services (AWS), OpenStack, Redis, Docker and many more. Focus areas can include Devops, High Availability, Programming, Web Services, Optimization and other areas of interest.

Community Voting:

In an effort to involve the community in the selection of speaking sessions, Percona has implemented a community voting process. After a speaker submits a proposal they are provided a link to share with the community asking for their vote. The more highly ranked proposals will continue onto the next phase of the voting process with the conference committee.
