Hotsos Symposium 2010

Symposium 2009 Attendees

"I absolutely loved this year's
conference! Probably the best
event of them all."

                      — Tanel Põder

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.
