Last year’s CFCamp 2023 was our first event after a forced-upon-us pandemic break and we were really happy how the conference was re-adopted by the community and that we were able to run in a reasonable and yet safe environment. So….
CFCamp is back for a 2024 edition.
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 2024, Europe’s largest conference on CFML, Lucee, Adobe ColdFusion and associated technologies.
Our two-day event on June 13-14, 2024 at the Marriot Munich Airport Hotel in Freising brings 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 2024 will provide content for designers, developers, testers, or just about anyone passionate about software and web development. We 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.
We’re looking for interested individuals who are keen on presenting at CFCamp 2024. Talks will be selected by the Programme Committee on the basis of making the conference a varied, diverse and valuable event for everyone.
Submission is open to anyone and we particularly encourage first-time speakers to submit a proposal. Members of the Programme Committee are happy to offer coaching and assistance on talk proposals. We want 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)
- Migrating legacy code

The above list is not 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 2024, please submit it to us regardless.
Submissions for this CFP are evaluated by a Program Committee. We’re a group of people doing our best to build an interesting, varied, diverse and valuable set of talks and workshops for CFCamp 2024. The first round of evaluating your submissions is anonymised. That means we’re initially looking at your proposals without knowing who you are.
Please do NOT put any identifying personal information into the “Talk details” section of the submission form. That includes the “Notes” field. Only provide personal information in the form’s “Profile details” section.
We are looking for sessions that fit into a 45 minutes slot (your talk should be around 35-40 minutes of content) and for hands-on workshop sessions that fit into a double slot of 90 minutes. Typically these would cater well for topics with coding elements that people could follow along on their own laptops or for generally more complex topics.
This year, we’re also experimenting with a lightning talk format of 10 minutes and we’re very open for submissions in that format as well. At this stage it’s unclear if we’re going to run lightning talk sessions and the response from the community with ideas for this format will be the main driver for adoption.
The deadline for submissions is March 17, 2024 23:30am UTC.
We plan to notify everyone about the success of their submissions no later than the first week of April.
