Do you have knowledge or experience with Erlang, Elixir and the ecosystem? Would you like to share that knowledge and experience with your peers?

Whether you are new to Erlang/Elixir or a seasoned developer on a core team, we want to hear what you can share with the global Erlang & Elixir community.

Code BEAM Europe 2023 is an Erlang & Elixir conference with either 20-minute or 40-minute in-person speaking slots including optional Q&A with both in-person and virtual audiences.

This year we are looking for great talk ideas around the themes of:

Growth of the Ecosystem 
Convincing decision-makers to adopt Erlang and Elixir whilst overcoming the challenges of building and retaining teams.

Edge, Cloud & Devices
Latest paradigms and frameworks for web, IoT, embedded and cloud.

AI & Machine Learning
Combining our systems with the components which give us the power of machine learning and AI on the BEAM.

Containerisation & DevOps
Overcoming challenges of deploying and scaling your systems in production environments.

Fighting Technical Debt 
Improving legacy systems and breaking the monolith.

History, Innovation & Sustainability
How we learn from the past to shape the future through innovation and green tech.

But don't worry if your idea doesn't fit within those categories. We're always looking to be wowed by new and exciting submissions!

What are you waiting for? Submit your talk by 17 June 2023, and we'll let you know by 7 July if your submission has been accepted. We can't wait to see what you come up with!


We want to make sure our conference is as diverse as the community we represent.
Do you know any researchers, programmers or experts who are a part of groups traditionally underrepresented in IT (due to gender, ethnicity or any other reason) and whose work you can recommend to our committee?

Please, let them know, that our CFT is open and that we’d love to see their work! Also, you can suggest their name in the form.

Never spoken at conferences before and are unsure if you should, and what should you talk about? Noel Rappin has a good article on this here:

"1. A conference that was limited to only people that really thought they were the most qualified person to talk would be depressing, if not completely horrific.

2. You are absolutely the most qualified person to tell me what you think about a particular topic.

3. This is how you become qualified. You study something, you teach it to other people."

Which mistakes to avoid when submitting a talk? Noel Rappin also has an answer in this article:

In short: clearly identify your topic, be respectful of everyone, be interesting, but also self-aware, don't pitch your company, and submit early and often. We could also add to that - think if this conference audience is the right one for your talk (and why?).
