Mark your calendars today! The largest worldwide conference dedicated to Lucene and Solr will take place in the San Francisco/Bay Area May 25-26.

The 2011 conference will build on the success of last year’s Lucene Revolution in Boston. Sponsored by Lucid Imagination with additional support from community and other commercial co-sponsors, we’ll be adding new sessions, new speakers, and new training sessions to the agenda. Lucid Imagination is the commercial entity exclusively dedicated to Apache Lucene/Solr open source search technology.
