Call for Papers

New in 2018: microXchg seeks talks about Serverless and provides mentoring for newcomers!

The IT industry is moving fast: Microservices are used successfully in many industries and applications. Additionally new cloud native and server-less solutions compliment classical microservices arechitecture. Both aim to replace large monolithic applications. And this gives new and fundamental challenges! Microservices based solutions, server less solutions or combinations of them need new approaches for architecture, new technologies, different approaches to operations and different organizational structures. The microXchg conference 2018 looks at all these aspects!

Possible subjects for sessions include:

  • Microservices-based architectures
  • Serverless solutions
  • Cloud native system
  • Decision criteria's, experiences or implementation patterns for one or the other or both approaches
  • Operations of heterogenous landscapes
  • Technologies for the implementation, deployment, and operation
  • Migration of monoliths to new architecture approaches
  • Organizational consequences

microXchg has different types of sessions:

  • Talks will last 50 minutes (incl. Q&A) and provide enough time to cover a topic in detail.
  • Lightning talks are 15 minutes. This allows to reduce effort in particular for newcomers and also to present niche subjects.
  • In-depth session are three hours. Ideally those session should cover a topic in detail and also provide hands-on, labs and demos.

The microXchg team believes in diversity and would like to encourage everyone from newcomer to senior speaker of any sex to submit a paper.

Mentoring program: As a community conference we want to support newcomer by a mentoring programm. Will will bring senior speakers in touch with newcomers to support them with their talk preparation. We kindly ask you to mention if you seek mentoring or if you offer to mentor in the field "comments to organizer".

The Call for Papers will end on 26th November 2017. We are looking forward to your submissions!

The Quick Version

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded t-shirts.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
