About pgDay Paris
pgDay Paris is an international PostgreSQL event held each year in Paris, France. Born of the Paris PostgreSQL User Group meetups, pgDay Paris began in 2015 and has since continued to grow in popularity and participation.
While there are other PostgreSQL events—both in Europe and beyond—the Paris event has the advantage of being held in a major European capital easily accessible to a wide range of participants and therefore catering to a large PostgreSQL community.
pgDay Paris is organized by a small group of dedicated PostgreSQL community members.
The 2023 event logistics and overall event are organized primarily by:
Call for Papers committee
The 2023 conference schedule was designed by the following committee:
Code of Conduct Committee
Full details on pgDay Paris’s governance structures can be found on the organization page.

The pgDay Paris organizers are proud to emphasize inclusivity and diversity as core tenets of the conference. We believe that it is everyone’s responsibilty to make these events fun, safe, and inclusive for all; and that is part of our organizing philosophy.

Like many of these events, pgDay Paris is funded from our generous sponsors and registrations. As a community conference for an open-source project, we try to keep our prices as low as possible so that our events are accessible to as many as possible.
Any profit proceeds from pgDay Paris go to PostgreSQL Europe, a non-profit organization that uses the funds “…to help promote PostgreSQL in and around Europe”.
