Are you as excited about the future of software as we are? Do you have a bold vision of where it’s headed? Now’s your chance to make a name for yourself among the developers, IT experts, and technologists who are building, running, and (re)defining the world of software at New Relic’s upcoming FutureStack15 conference.


This “call for papers” is an invitation to submit your stories and unique points of view for an opportunity to be chosen to share them with a rapt audience of more than 1,200 live data nerds at our flagship event, taking place at the famed Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, from November 11-13. If selected, we’ll work with you to fine-tune your presentation, share your presence via social media and the New Relic blog, and also offer the following:

  • Complimentary registration for the event
  • Session evaluation scores
  • Membership in the New Relic community and as part of our expansive ecosystem

Sound good? Awesome. Now let’s figure out which track would be best suited for your talk idea. FutureStack15 features three tracks, all of which are open to outside presenters:

Track 1: What Is the Future Stack?

Building and evolving modern software requires attention to a long list of important factors—speed to market, scalability, cost, security, and many more. This track is your chance to discuss how you’d lead the way to the architecture and tools of the future.

Track 2: How to Create and Run the Future Stack

From cloud services and containerization to DevOps and continuous delivery, new and emerging trends are reshaping how software is built and run. Can you help explain the right approach to tools, technology, and teamwork to evolve your stack and position organizations for future success?

Track 3: The Future Stack and New Relic

This is where New Relic developers, engineers, product designers, and executives share a taste of the secret sauce behind New Relic’s world-class software analytics platform. We’re also looking for expert users showing off their big wins as well.
