Berlin offers many options for accommodation, so you're kind of spoilt for choice. To make it easy we made special arrangements for accommodation with 3 hotels in 3 different price categories.
We happily announce the event partnership between Berlin Buzzwords and droidcon Berlin. Both conferences will take place in the unique event location Postbahnhof in Berlin. We start with Berlin Buzzwords in the period from May 31st until June 3rd which is instantly followed by droidcon Berlin taking place from June 3rd until June 5th. Both conferences share a common informal evening event on Tuesday, June 2: the good-bye party of Berlin Buzzwords is droidcon's welcoming party at the same time.
We are very excited to announce that the 2nd keynote speaker for Berlin Buzzwords 2015 will be Eric Evans. Eric has been speaker at Berlin Buzzwords since the conference first kicked off in 2010.

We are more than happy with the considerable number of 120 submissions for Berlin Buzzwords 2015. In the upcoming weeks, our program committee will review and select the most inspiring and creative session ideas for this year's Berlin Buzzwords. During a first quick review, we have ascertained that the subject areas Lucene, Elasticsearch, Spark, Solr and Cassandra have been among the most popular topics to choose from. We will let you know as soon as possible if your proposal has been accepted.
Berlin Buzzwords aims for a diverse range of speakers and therefore, concentrates not only on the topics, but also on the people behind the talks. For us diversity means that we explicitly encourage submissions from people of color, genderqueer people, trans*people, women as well as people with physical disabilities. Berlin Buzzwords is an international conference but out of 130 submissions, only a few were submitted by female speakers.
