Conference Themes

    Though our members all come from organizations of different sizes and with many different vendors, products and setups, there are several technical skills and business challenges all Oracle technologists face. Through our Conference Themes, IOUG helps users identify groups of sessions that will provide an in-depth, organized approach to learning new skills, addressing misconceptions and gaining real-world experience that they can apply immediately back in the office.

    Speakers are encouraged to choose up to three themes for their submissions; this will help our Conference Committee to identify critical content, and for our attendees to easily justify their attendance at COLLABORATE.
