As 2015 whizzes by (seriously, March where did you go?), the team at Lucidworks is busy preparing for another exciting Lucene/Solr Revolution, the largest conference dedicated to open source Lucene/Solr, taking place this year in Austin, TX October 13-16. The Call for Papers is now open and we are looking forward to seeing this year’s speaking proposals.

The speakers at Lucene/Solr Revolution really are the heart of the conference and provide attendees with an opportunity to hear about so many different ways Lucene and Solr can be used, implemented, and optimized. Last year, we had speakers from companies like Apple, Bloomberg, LinkedIn, Twitter, Airbnb, and more share how they are leveraging Lucene and Solr to better their business. Amazon Web Services, Sematext, Cloudera, Basis Technology, and others shed light on best practices for data visualization, scaling, log management, multilingual search, and more.

This year, we want to hear from you! Whether you are a developer, business leader, Solr committer, or someone who just loves search and open source, and have something interesting to share, submit your proposal today. Don’t miss out on the chance to teach, innovate, motivate, and share your experiences with the Solr community and engage with the best and brightest across the industry.  Speaking submissions will be accepted through May 8.

Registration for the conference is also now open! Early bird registration is in effect through May 31. Register today to save up to $500 on Conference-Only and Training + Conference packages.
