Call for Proposals

The Pacific Northwest Scala Conference will be taking place this year in Portland, Oregon on November 14 and 15. We look forward to engaging with Scala users and those interested in learning more about Scala, from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. We will be hosting a two-day event with two days of single-track talks. If you have a topic you’re passionate about – perhaps an area of interest in which you've become your company's or user-group's resident expert – or a new approach you'd like to share, we encourage you to submit a proposal for a talk.

We strongly encourage anyone from typically under-represented groups to submit proposals. We want to promote diversity in this community and we guarantee that all submissions will be given equal consideration.

Also, we’ll be including the option to submit talks as either a typical presentation length (40 minutes, including time for Q&A) or as longer, workshop-style presentations that can be more hands-on or go more in-depth into areas of deeper interest. If your talk might fit into either category, please let us know on the submission form.

Areas of interest that talks might cover include (but are certainly not limited to):

  • Case studies & experience reports
  • Interesting patterns & designs
  • Reliability & fault-tolerance
  • Concurrency & distributed systems
  • Data management & large-scale data
  • Tools & techniques
  • Domain-Specific Languages
  • Functional programming
  • Migrating to Scala from other languages
  • Beginner focused topics

If you would like to give a talk at PNWScala 2014, please submit your information using this form. Submissions are due TBD and we will be selecting talks by TBD at the latest. Please note that if your talk is accepted, you will be given free admittance (normally $100) to the conference. You may want to go ahead and register before we make selections (registration will be online very soon), in order to guarantee a spot. We’ll refund your fees if your talk is selected.

Submit your proposal here.


PNWScala would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors.
