GopherCon Singapore 2019

The largest Go programming language conference in Southeast Asia is back!

Conference dates and CFP submission deadline changes

GopherCon Singapore 2019 is now confirmed for 29 April to 3 May 2019. The previously-announced dates were from 24 to 26 April 2019, but the organisers have elected to shift it back a week to avoid conflicting with another Go conference in the region. We are extending the submission deadline to 11 February 2019, and all submitters have been notified of the date changes.

GopherCon Singapore 2019 will take place in Singapore from 29 April to 3 May 2019. The conference will be on 3 May 2019. We are very excited to once again meet like-minded Go developers from Singapore, other parts of South-East Asia, and the rest of the world.

GopherCon Singapore includes a (likely to be) one-day conference, plus workshops on the preceding days. We are planning to feature around 11-12 speakers during the main conference, and will be very excited if you can come on board.

We are currently soliciting talk proposals from now until 11 February 2019, end of day Singapore time (+0800 UTC).

CFP Description


We welcome speakers from varying backgrounds. You do not have to be an experienced speaker or an experienced programmer to be considered for speaking at GopherCon Singapore. We aim to ensure that the conference is welcoming and relevant to both beginner and experienced programmers.

You may submit proposals for any of these talks:

  • Main conference (Time limit: 20 mins)
  • Lightning talks (Time Limit: 5-10 mins)

The choice of topic is yours. Go is so ubiquitous that people are using it in back-end services, distributed systems, databases, mobile, embedded systems, etc. We would also love to hear about your best practices, cautionary tales, future visions and hard-won lessons.

The submission process is anonymised. We take into account quality, relevance, novelty, and practical impact. Final selection is done by the organising committee.

All submitters will be able to purchase their ticket at Super Early Bird pricing (for a reasonable period) if their talk does not get accepted. We aim to notify all speakers of our decision by mid-February.
