About Us

This day is all about PostgreSQL - the world's most advanced open source database. Take the opportunity to meet with other people interested in PostgreSQL in Belgium. Beside the talks we offer the chance to network during the day. The event is suitable for everybody, from first-time users, students, to experts and from clerks to decision-makers. Within the description of each talk the target audience will be mentioned. The information from the past conference is available for 2019

Financial Disclosure

The sponsorship is used to organize the conference, host the website or other to support PostgreSQL in Belgium. No staff receives any payment for their work, except for free attendance and a staff dinner. We will keep an overview of transactions with descriptions on the pgconf-be wiki Expenses of pgconf.be are covered with the income from our sponsors and from the registration fees. We aim at keeping costs for both parties as low as possible and include free entries for students in order to enable as many interested people as possible to attend. Profits are reinvested in the next year's edition of pgconf.be or Belgian PostgreSQL user community activities related to PostgreSQL.


The idea is to create a single track conference with a focus on high quality talks in a open environment. "PGConf", "PGDay", "Postgres Conference" and "PostgreSQL Conference" are registered trademarks of PostgreSQL Europe.

Event FAQs

Given the current national context we have decided to cancel this years pgconf.be conference. More: We discussed about having a virtual conference instead, but also decided not to do this; as we think that most people are not interested in such a setup at this point.
Feel free to contact us, the response might take some time though

Call for Speakers closed

Are you a PostgreSQL user or developer or does your company use PostgreSQL? We are happy to hear about your project, your experiences (good and bad), or any topic of interest around PostgreSQL that grabbed your attention. Specifically for this year we would like to have one session about pgAdmin 4 (suggestions: pros and cons, 10 best features, tips for developers and others, tab completion?, what is the meaning of the dashboard and how to use/interpret it, does it make sense to run it on a public webserver, howto use it productively, when not to use it ..) A session lasts 45 minutes including questions. Tell us about your proposal. Submit a duration, title and an abstract; if you already have a presentation, send that as well. Include a short text about you and your relation to PostgreSQL. Mail your submission to the talk selection committee with literally the subject 'I love Elephants'. Confirmed speakers will get free access to the conference (including lunch).
The talk selection committee and program committee consists of W. Bertels (UCLL), A. Vercammen(Groep IDEWE) and G. Gioffredi (EURid).
