All presentations must be strongly technical in nature, cannot contain marketing content, and must support and strengthen the information services community by providing the highest quality education and services designed to promote the effective utilization of Db2 and it’s family of products.
Presentations may cover details of Db2 tools and other ancillary Db2 products. In case a technical demo is incorporated, the presentation must be able to convey the same information in absence of it.
IDUG strongly encourages speakers to read through the IDUG Speakers Guide.
You may submit an unlimited number of abstracts. IDUG will accept two-part presentations. If you have a two-part presentation from another conference, please select "Double Session" in the Call for Presentations Form. It is very important that you provide ALL of the information requested below when submitting your presentation(s) for review. Failure to provide all requested information might impact whether or not the abstract is accepted.

Presentation Title: Titles must be clear, concise, and 50 characters or less.
Abstract: Provide a concise abstract of your presentation, not exceeding 425 characters.
Example: This presentation provides an early look at some Db2 for z/OS 12 features which will be important to you as the Application Developer or DBA. We will start with the basics and demonstrate how they can be an integral part of a good design strategy. This will allow you to start the planning process early and see if/how they fit in your organization.Unlike other Db2 for z/OS 12 Overview sessions, we will focus exclusively on those which impact application development.
If your presentation is selected, this information will be published on the IDUG Web site and in the Final Program distributed to all conference attendees. (Note: Any abstract of more than 425 characters may be edited). Some presentations may also be selected as repeat sessions.

This is what two of our EMEA 2017 first time speakers say about the experience:
Belen Frances Foz, Bankinter
The Spanish colleague who pushed me to be a Speaker, was right: it’s so nice experience!
Db2 community have so much to share, that having IDUG is quite easy.
My tutor Timm, also Philip and Frederik resolving any doubt. A friendly web, clear rules, alerts on important dates.
Everything prepared in the room for the presentation, all material needed available, and Manuel as moderator.
And what I liked best is that all organizers always had an smile, making you feel un-stress and comfortable!
My first experience as a speaker at the IDUG was great.
The prior support I received was perfect. I got everything I required for my presentation
I would certainly hold a presentation at the IDUG again.
