IDUG 2022 EMEA Db2 Tech Conference Overview
This overview page will provide quick information (and then link you to all the information and resources in the pages on the menu to the right) for IDUG's 2022 EMEA Db2 Tech Conference (EMEA22) for our members in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and all over the world! Our first face-to-face conference in Europe since 2019 will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland, on October 22-26, 2022.
NOTE: This year's conference [one year only!] has a Saturday-Wednesday pattern, different from the traditional EMEA schedule. Thus, in 2022, Saturday will feature Workshops (optional 3-4 hour sessions occurring prior to, and at the end of, EMEA22), while the conference--with its hour-long technical sessions and other features--will start on Sunday and end on Wednesday.
To register for EMEA, you must create an IDUG member account -- IDUG Standard Membership is FREE! Learn more about IDUG membership options here.
You can register now right here, or find out more about the different options to participate here. EMEA22 is a hybrid conference, with two ways to join us: On-Site Attendees will have access to 100% of the event's activities; Virtual Participants will have access to ~30% of pre-selected education sessions.

You can find the latest version of the EMEA22 Agenda (known as The Grid) here. The Grid shows all of the Technical Breakout Sessions and (optional) Workshops that will be offered at EMEA22.

A Note From IDUG Leadership
We were so excited to host the 2022 EMEA Db2 Tech Conference as our first on-site conference in Europe since before the start of the global pandemic (our North America conference in Boston earlier this year was a big success). All COVID-19 restrictions impacting Scotland have been lifted [for the country's current COVID guidelines, click here]. For international travelers to Scotland, Normal travel rules now apply [for their COVID travel information, click here]. IDUG followed all laws and ordinances in place during the time of our conference. For our members who preferred to participate online instead of in-person, we produced this as a hybrid event (where one could instead choose to enjoy a number of pre-selected via an online virtual environment).
This will be another exciting IDUG conference where you can learn how your fellow Db2 professionals are utilizing Db2 and its related technology and learn things that will be of use in your organization. We can't wait to see you in Edinburgh!
