background on the architecture of specific projects and a deep dive
into architectures built on top of e.g. Hadoop clusters.

indicate whether you want to give a lightning (10min), short (20min)
or long (40min) presentation and indicate the level of experience with
the topic your audience should have (e.g. whether your talk will be
suitable for newbies or is targeted for experienced users.) If you'd
like to pitch your brand new product in your talk, please let us know
as well -
there will be extra space for presenting new ideas, awesome products
and great new projects.

The presentation format is short. We will be enforcing the schedule rigorously.
