MongoDB Events

event date

22 Jun 2023

Welcome to the 2023-2024 MongoDB CFP (Call for Papers) Speaker Submission Website.

This year MongoDB will have events in ~30 cities around the world, so for the first time ever we're launching a global CFP for these events! This will be a rolling acceptance, and we will utilize these sessions for appearances in cities around the world.

What does this mean for you? This means that we're bringing MongoDB.local to a city near you, for a live and local event. With over 30 cities on the schedule we hope to hear one of your topics or talks! To learn more about where and when events will be held, keep an eye on the MongoDB.local website.

We encourage you to submit throughout the whole year and let us know which cities are closest to you for consideration. Please note you only need to submit your session once, but please indicate any and all cities that you're willing to speak at. 

If you have any questions please reach out to and we can support and guide you through the process. 

Good luck and see you at a MongoDB.local near you!

We are looking for speakers who can inspire attendees by introducing them to new technologies, ideas, and solutions. 


Take a look at our topics and see where your talks idea might fit:

  • Building & Architecting Applications - Learn how to architect and develop with MongoDB to build modern applications with rich user experiences. Your customers have high expectations for your products, websites, and applications. Learn how you can power fast, personalized, and event-driven experiences with MongoDB’s developer data platform.

  • Data Modeling & Schema Design - Data modeling and schema design are central to the effectiveness and scalability of your applications. Learn from the best as they explore patterns, trade-offs and best practices for building applications with MongoDB.

  • Industry Solutions - Your business solutions depend on a solid data infrastructure end to end. You often need to support transactional, search, and analytical workloads across mobile, distributed, and event-driven architectures to support business requirements, all while managing complexity. Learn about use cases, best practices for specific solutions, and exemplary ISV showcases across various industries. See how MongoDB’s developer data platform can be extended through the ISV community, including discussions on industry standards and frameworks.

  • Mobile Application Development - MongoDB is used for some of the largest and most demanding mobile applications with the Realm database and support for mobile-to-cloud data synchronization with Atlas Device Sync. Learn how to leverage MongoDB for your mobile application use-cases in this track.

  • Running MongoDB at Scale - The approaches you should take to deploying, scaling and optimizing the performance of your MongoDB deployments and workloads changes as your applications grow and evolve. Learn about deployment options and tools, performance considerations, and best practices from experts and customers, and discover features that can help you save money, improve performance latency, and scale confidently.

  • Security, Privacy and Data Protection - Data governance, compliance and security are critical needs for all organizations. Maintaining the security and privacy of your data is non-negotiable. Learn how MongoDB’s developer data platform can simplify data protection and governance and help you achieve your security, regulatory and compliance goals

Audience Level

When writing your proposal, please tailor it to a specific audience level:

  • Beginner - Engineers who are new to MongoDB. You’ll want to introduce key concepts, help them get started, and show them how to continue their learning journey.
  • Intermediate - These engineers have already built and shipped an MVP. They’re ready to dive deeper to learn about using MongoDB at scale.
  • Advanced - These engineers have built and maintained MongoDB applications at scale. They are veterans, but you’re going to teach them something new.

Your Submission

Our reviewers have to read through a lot of submissions. Here are some tips to make sure yours is successful:

  • Title - Your title should not be more than 80 characters long. Puns, creative wordplay, and “hooks” in titles are okay, but make sure that if all someone knew was the title, they still would have some idea what the presentation is about.
  • Description - Your description should be between 400 - 700 characters. Use the description to explain what the problem is. How did you solve it? Please give us tons of examples of what you’d talk about. 
  • Notes - You can use the notes section to explain the details of your talk in a bit more conversational way. Share your experience with the problem or give us the outline of your talk.
