Abstract Submissions


You are invited to share your skills, ideas, experiences, thoughts and best practices with the AUSOUG Oracle community at their INSYNC13 National Conference Series.

The conference theme is "Elevate Your Potential".

The INSYNC13 Conference Series provides an educational forum for Oracle practitioners to gather together and share their skills and experiences. This is an excellent opportunity to meet, network with and learn from acknowledged experts in the field. If you are one of the 'acknowledged experts' or believe that you should be, then we want you to submit your abstract for consideration.

This will be the largest gathering of Oracle professionals in Australia and you will have the opportunity to present to attendees of one conference or up to six conferences.

With over 1,000 people expected to participate nationally, your experience is invaluable to the success of these events. End users, independent professionals, Oracle, Oracle Partners and suppliers of Oracle services are invited to submit papers that focus on the following trending topics.  The 'fresher the better':

  • DBA: Application | Development | Production
  • Dev: PL/SQL | Forms & Reporting | Apex | ADF
  • E-Business Suite/Fusion Apps: Financials | OBIEE | Hyperion | Primavera
  • Middleware: Content | WL Server | BPM | BPEL | SOA
  • Other Oracle Products that you believe are a current 'HOT TOPIC'.

* Please Note: INSYNC13 Conference Series does not include any JD Edwards content.


The two days may consist of the following format*:

Day One:

  • Concurrent Seminars; and
  • Concurrent Workshops on the products featured in seminars on Day Two

Day Two:

  • Concurrent Sessions; and
  • Concurrent Workshops on the products featured in seminars on Day One

*Please Note that format may vary slightly from conference to conference

Our program allows for concurrent seminar session times of 45 minutes (inc Q & A) and 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
  • And either half or full day workshops specific to the seminars.

Workshops can be either full or half day. Speakers can submit abstracts for both seminars and workshops.  If that is the case then the workshop should reflect the seminar.
