Speakers at the Hotsos Campgrounds - Symposium 2008: Anjo Kolk, Bob Sneed, Tanel Poder, Jared Still and Stephan HaisleyJoin the world's top Oracle performance analysts at the seventh annual Hotsos Symposium, the conference dedicated to issues of Oracle system performance. The Symposium will be held March 8–12, 2009 in Dallas, TX.

Why Is the Hotsos Symposium Different?

Hotsos Symposium is the only conference in the Americas devoted to Oracle system performance. The combination of topic focus, small audience size, and large speaker list make the Hotsos Symposium an unsurpassed networking opportunity.

Hotsos Symposium features presenters who take great care to show you how to determine the difference between reliable information and bad advice around Oracle performance optimization.
