Would you like to meet the German and European CFML web developer communities, listen to expert speakers and find out all about the latest trends around CFML and associated technologies? Then join us at CFCamp 2019, Europe’s largest conference on CFML, Lucee and Adobe ColdFusion. We’re back for our 10th anniversary edition.
Our two-day event on October 17-18, 2019 at the Marriot Munich Airport Hotel in Freising aims to bring together 200+ web developers, architects and general technology enthusiasts. The conference attracts attendees who are interested in learning about and discussing the latest developments in the CFML world as well as learning about associated technologies in the fields of web and mobile development.
CFCamp 2019 will provide content for designers, developers, testers, or just about anyone passionate about software and web development. We want to encourage attendees to look beyond their day-to-day platform of choice and keep up to date with more general trends in web and mobile tech.
At this stage, we’re looking for interested individuals who are keen on presenting at CFCamp 2019. Talks will be selected by the Programme Committee on the basis of making the conference a varied, diverse and valuable event. Submission is open to anyone and we encourage first-time speakers to submit a proposal. Members of the Programme Committee are happy to offer coaching and assistance on talk proposals. We aim to create a conference that has a set of great, engaging and interesting talks from a diverse and varied range of speakers and technology experts.
Encouraged topics for submissions include:
- New language and server features in Adobe ColdFusion and Lucee
- CFML frameworks (e.g. *Box, CF on Wheels etc)
- Frontend development with JS
- CFML integration with languages such as Java, Kotlin, Groovy etc
- IDEs and editors for CFML

- General CFML tools, libraries and frameworks
- General web development topics in the fields of Development, Design, and/or Testing
The above list should not be treated as exhaustive. If you would like to speak on a topic that doesn’t seem to fit into any of the suggestions but goes well with the overall theme of CFCamp 2019, please submit it to us regardless.
Submissions should be for a 45 minute talk (NOTE: In an earlier version of the CFP, this was wrongly stating 40 minutes) or for a 90-120 minute workshop. CFCamp 2019 talks will not have Q&A immediately after the session, instead there will be “Speaker-Office-Hours” in a dedicated area outside after each talk.
Selected speakers will receive a free ticket to the event and will be provided accommodation for the duration of the conference at the venue. We are a community-driven event run by a small company and driven by a lot of volunteers in their spare time. Therefore we do not pay speaking fees. As a general rule we unfortunately also do not cover any travel expenses.
However - We aim to increase participation rates of underrepresented groups in tech and among conference speakers. Depending on available sponsorship, we might be in the position to subsidise individuals’ travel cost beyond providing accommodation. If you identify with an underrepresented group in tech and among conference speakers, please let us know if the cost of travel presents a significant barrier to you participating in CFCamp 2019 as a speaker and we will see what we can do.
If you’re overseas, please also be aware that travelling to Germany might require a visa. Depending on your country of birth/residence the process to acquire such a visa might take a significant amount of time and is in your own responsibility.
The deadline for submissions is July 7, 2019 midnight UTC (i.e. the night of the 7th to the 8th)
You will be notified about the success of your submission by no later than July 25, 2019.
