About the conference

The Erlang User Conference is a two-day tech conference focused on the Erlang programming language. It brings together the rapidly growing community that uses Erlang in order to showcase the language and its various application to today's distributed environments. Those less familiarized with the language get first-hand accounts on how companies solve real-world challenges using Erlang. Training courses on Erlang, OTP and other tools ad solutions based on the language are usually organised around the conference. We also offer a complimentary day of tutorials sponsored by Ericsson.

“The EUC was inspiring and thought provoking, and it provided a lot of valuable input to my on-going work.”

“I have met new people that might lead to more business for me in the future. Tons of new information, lots of new connections. Also a very good community.”

“Dissemination, making contacts, recruiting users of a tool. Networking. I realized that Erlang is a good, well-supported platform for reliable concurrent systems.”

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. 

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund. 

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded t-shirts.

Organisers

Erlang Solutions Ltd. organises two Erlang Factory conferences each year - in the San Francisco Bay Area and in London. The Erlang Factory is a way of bringing together the growing community that are using Erlang in many and varied ways, in order to showcase the language and its application to today's growing distributed environments. In 2009 the company took over the organization of the Erlang User Conference in Stockholm – the oldest Erlang conference in the world, run annually since 1994 (except 1996 when everybody was busy developing the first version of OTP). The Erlang Factory website is also being used to aggregate slides and videos from other Erlang conferences which are not organised by Erlang Solutions Ltd. In this way we are enabling knowledge flow within the Erlang community and the promotion of the Erlang language outside of it.
