Berlin Buzzwords always wanted to have a more diverse speaker talent pool. Last year we received over 120 submissions, but only a few were by women. Looking back on two great keynotes by Leslie Hawthorne and Ariel Waldman we realized once again that the female potential is an important factor for the success of an inspiring and strong conference. Especially Ariel Waldman's keynote "The Hacker's Guide to the Galaxy" in 2013 made a big impression on the attendees. Therefore, we want to overcome remaining barriers, motivate the female audience and hope especially for active participation of women.
If you are working on exciting topics and projects with a special focus on Large Data Processing, NoSQL, IR/Search or related topics - Berlin Buzzwords is open for your ideas. Anyone, no matter if experienced or new to the stage, is welcome to propose a session. The most exciting topics will complete the program.
