We believe in collaboration, participation and exchange of ideas. That’s why we want to encourage all Big Data Open Source enthusiasts to submit a session on Large Data Processing, NoSQL, IR/Search or related topics.

What we offer

Undivided attention onstage for your session and a video of your talk. Besides, you get a free ticket for the conference, barcamp and satellite events taking place all over Berlin. As a speaker you will also get free accomodation during the conference for two nights at a nearby hotel.

What we are looking for

Berlin Buzzwords is looking for talks on:

  • Search / IR systems – Lucene, Solr, Elasticsearch or comparable solutions
  • NoSQL – like Apache Cassandra, Flink, MongoDB, Hbase, CouchDB and others
  • Large Data Processing – Hadoop itself, MapReduce, Cascading etc.

Related topics not explicitly listed above are welcome as well.

We do not, however, accept product presentations or company marketing presentations. If your company is interested in cooperating or partnering with Berlin Buzzwords, please contact us via

Selection process

There will be an anonymized review of all submissions. Members of the program committee will not see the name, photo, short bio and gender of the prospect to reduce unconscious bias.


The Call for Submissions will be open until February 14th, 2018.
