RedisConf20 Call for Papers Process:

To present at RedisConf, you must first submit an abstract of your talk. One or two paragraphs should be enough to effectively convey your idea. You do not need to submit an academic paper or provide slides. Most sessions are 40 minutes including Q&A. You may also submit a 5 minute Lightning Talk, or 20 minute session talk. 

When: The first batch of talks will be chosen from those submitted by Jan 31st. The second batch of talks will be chosen from those submitted by Feb 15th. You do not need to re-submit your talk to be considered for the Feb 15th batch. After Feb 15th, you may submit your talk, but we will have very few speaking spots left so don't submit after Feb 15th unless absolutely necessary.

Criteria: The selection committee is composed of technical and marketing members of Redis Labs. There are no required topics but we are highlighting certain themes this year, such as: Elegant use of Redis Data Structures/Commands, Redis Modules, Event-driven Architecture (Streams, Queues, Pub/Sub), Microservices, Serverless, Artificial Intelligence, IoT/Edge Computing, Scale-out Architecture, DevOps/Operations, Redis Internals, and of course, your talk should focus on Redis. Generally, the following types of talks are successful: 

  • Examples of incredible performance with Redis
  • Examples of how Redis enabled new capabilities
  • Sharing tips and tricks or best practices

Additional pointers to keep in mind:

  • Try making it fresh
  • Keep it technical
  • Make it useful
  • Research numbers are the best, lessons from the battlefield are better

If you have questions or would like feedback on your abstract, please contact Dave Nielsen at
