AUSOUG is pleased to announce the 2016 Connect Conference Series Call for Papers.  We invite Oracle professionals to submit abstracts, for presentations and workshops. The AUSOUG Connect 2016 Conference Series is being held on both, the East and West Coasts of Australia.


This announcement also serves as a notice to members, informing you of these valuable events that should not be missed.  So please, place these dates into your diary, and start making arrangements to attend.  These events will provide you with an unprecedented opportunity to gain detailed knowledge and skills, covering Oracle’s latest announcements from Open World 2016, 12c Database new features, Cloud based services and practical training, plus much more. Details will soon be provided from the conference website on all sessions.

The AUSOUG Connect 2016 Conferences have a focus on bringing together our Oracle community, and servicing their core technical, development and applications needs through presentations and training.  A balanced program is aimed at all levels of skill and experience within a forum of User led independent knowledge sharing. 

We are seeking the most influential technology and applications speakers in Australia and internationally.  These speakers and industry leaders bring with them real world user experience.  They will deliver educational sessions that include hands on participation, sharing, and interactive engagement, ensuring all attendees receive the most from their experience.

I, and all of the AUSOUG team, look forward forward to seeing you ALL at at one of the AUSOUG Connect 2016 Conferences.

AUSOUG intends the Connect 2016 Conferences to focus on improving productivity levels within the Oracle environment.  We ask that speakers share new products, services and real work case studies with attendees. Every presentation will be a learning experience.

Our aim is to include diverse contributions to shift attendees thinking, to expand their network, and to transform their practices at the Connect 2016 conferences in Perth and Melbourne.

The opportunity therefore exists for you to share your Oracle experience, with Oracle professionals at these conference events.  Your presentation will be made available to more than 4,000 people on the AUSOUG database from the AUSOUG Website.

End users, independent professionals, Oracle, Oracle partners, and suppliers of Oracle services are invited to submit papers that focus on the following core areas:

  • Big Data | Cloud | IOT
  • Database Administration | Development | Storage | Virtualisation | Linux | Solaris | Architecture and Infrastructure
  • Development: PL/SQL | APEX | ADF | Mobile
  • E-business suite: Financials | HRMS | Manufacturing | Retail | OBIEE | Reporting
  • Middleware: Fusion Middleware | Content | WL Server | BPM | BPEL | SOA

Note: If you have a ‘hot topic’ not listed above, please let us know.

The Conference Structure
The conferences will offer attendees a series of concurrent sessions, that will be split into presentations from Oracle, Solution Integrators (SI’s) and Users. The two conferences may be structured differently to one another so as to reflect their audience needs better.

Our conference programs allow for concurrent streamed session times of 45 minutes (incl. Q & A) plus workshops. Some sessions will be broadcast live to AUSOUG members who were unable to attend on the day, increasing your reach even further.  This will be setup for you should that be the case.

Your abstracts can fall into the following categories:

► Case study or useful tips
► Educational sessions
► Real life experience and best practice
► Defining strategies and techniques
► The latest and best technologies
