Are you a developer, architect, DevOps, SRE with a novel approach to high performance and low latency? Perhaps you’re a production-oriented practitioner looking to share your best practices for service level management, or a new approach to system management or monitoring that helps to shave valuable milliseconds off application performance.

Talk directly to your peers. There’s no other event like this — a highly-technical conference for engineers by engineers, where we’ll share novel approaches for solving complex problems that impact performance, latency, and efficiency. No shallow overviews. No product pitches. Your boss is not invited.

Session format

We're looking for 15-20 minute sessions that will be pre-recorded and a maximum of 2 speakers per session. We welcome speakers to participate in live Q +A on the day of the event, and also stop by our lively Speakers Lounge for unscripted conversation with our hosts–and other speakers.

Submitting your ideas

The FAQs below provide tips for crafting your submission. You can submit up to 3 session abstracts for consideration.

About the review process

Submissions will be reviewed by a content committee organized by ScyllaDB, the organization that curates P99 CONF. Agenda decisions will be announced this summer.

By submitting, you agree to our Code of Conduct and Diversity and Inclusion statement.

What type of content are you looking for? Is there a theme?

We’re looking for compelling technical sessions, case studies, lessons learned and best practices. P99 CONF is designed to highlight the engineering challenges and creative solutions required for low-latency, high performance distributed computing applications. We’d like to share your expertise with a highly technical audience of industry professionals. Here are the categories we are looking for talks in:

  • Development — Techniques in programming languages and operating systems
  • Architecture — High performance distributed systems, design patterns and frameworks
  • Performance — Capacity planning, benchmarking and performance testing
  • DevOps — Observability & optimization to meet SLAs
  • Use Cases — Low-latency applications in production and lessons learned

No vendor pitches will be accepted.

If selected, what is the time commitment?

We are looking for 15-20 minute sessions which will be pre-recorded and live Q&A during the event. We expect the total time commitment to be 4-5 hours. You’ll need to attend a 30 min speaker briefing and a 1 hour session recording appointment, all done virtually. Additionally, we ask that all speakers log onto the virtual conference platform 30 minutes before your session and join for live Q&A on the platform during and following your session. And, of course, all speakers are encouraged to attend the entire online conference to see the other sessions as well.
