The dates for PGCon 2016 have been determined.

Join us in Ottawa for the 10th annual PGCon May 17-21 as users and developers from around the world gather for what has become a traditional gathering of the PostgreSQL community.

There will be two days of tutorials on Tuesday and Wednesday.  The best of the best will be available to help you learn great things about PostgreSQL and its tools.

On Wednesday, there will be a Developer Unconference (a User Unconference will follow on Saturday).  The Unconference first appeared at PGCon 2013 and was a instant success.  At PGCon 2016, there will be two days of Unconference, one preceding the conference, and one following the conference.  There will be many people who attend both sessions.

For Thursday and Friday, the submitted talks will be presented as everyone gathers in one location to learn, discuss, and collaborate.

Saturday sees the return of the User Unconference, run similar to the format of previous years. People show up, voice their opinions on what they'd like to hear or would like to speak about, the topics are upon, and the items with the most votes gets onto the schedule. 

In summary:

• Tutorials: 17-18 May 2016 (Tue & Wed)
• Unconference: 18 & 21 May 2016
	• Wednesday is a developer unconference.
	• Saturday is a user unconference.
	• Everyone is welcome to both sessions, but you must register separately for each.
• Talks: 19-20 May 2016 (Thu-Fri).

Registration will open shortly after the talks are announced.

The official Call For Papers announcement will go out tomorrow.
