The largest Lucene/Solr conference in the world

October 11-14th, 2016 Boston, MA


Lucene/Solr Revolution is the largest conference dedicated to Apache Lucene/Solr, the powerful search platform powering search and applications for some of the world’s biggest companies. Last year, over 600 people gathered in Austin, TX for hands-on training, educational tutorials, and to hear from some of the most innovative organizations about how they utilize Lucene/Solr. Experts and Solr committers from near and far came to give their insights into best practices, useful integrations, upcoming features, and more.

The two-day conference is preceded by two days of hands-on Solr training and includes technical tutorials, use case presentations, panels, networking sessions, and many opportunities to meet and greet with a global community of professionals driving open source innovation.
