GroupBy is data platform training by the community, for the community. View our website: https://groupby.org/

Each session will be 60-minutes in length, followed by 15-minutes for Q&A and 15-minutes for whimsy and fun. 


On Tuesday, October 26 GroupBy Americas will present sessions at timeslots accessible for American timezones.

On Wednesday, October 27 GroupBy Europe will present sessions at timeslots accessible for European timezones.

NOTE: Be sure to select the correct day when submitting your session! You can submit the same session to both days, but you will ONLY be allowed to present one session at GroupBy.


We welcome speakers submitting multiple sessions!

We will only select your top-voted session to be presented, though.


Here's how GroupBy works:

  • Speakers submit session abstracts publicly online
  • Everybody votes for the abstracts they’d like to see most
  • When voting closes, the top speakers/abstracts are picked for each stream of content (Europe or the Americas)
  • Sessions are held online in an easy-to-watch platform
  • A live co-host helps the session go smoothly by posing questions from Q&A and Twitter, helping things run smoothly
  • Recordings are posted on our YouTube account
  • Speakers can’t present on back-to-back days

GroupBy is a free, community-driven online conference, and anyone can submit a session abstract!

Each session will be 60-minutes in length, followed by 15-minutes for Q&A and 15-minutes for whimsy and fun.

Those abstracts are then voted on, and the top-voted sessions are presented at a full-day webinar conference.


This year, Junior Speakers will be offered FREE support in building their sessions. If you are a Junior speaker looking for support, select "Junior Speaker" under "Level"!

Are you a Junior Speaker who wants help with your abstract submission? Email hello@groupby.org to be paired with a mentor!

When submitting, make sure you select the day you want to present (GroupBy Americas and/or GroupBy Europe) in your session submission under "Session Day"!
