More speakers

to be announced soon!


We're pleased to invite the spaCy community and other folks working on Natural Language Processing to Berlin this summer for a small and intimate event July 6, 2019. We've booked a beautiful venue in one of Berlin's coolest neighborhoods, hand-picked an awesome lineup of speakers and scheduled plenty of social time to get to know each other and exchange ideas.

The conference will take place at Heimathafen Neukölln, with one track of talks. Tickets include entry, coffee, tea and soft drinks, and snacks throughout the day. We're looking forward to seeing you there!

Corporate Training

On July 5, 2019, the day before the conference, we'll also be holding a training day for teams using spaCy in production. Over the course of the day, you'll learn more about constructing custom end-to-end pipelines, training more accurate models for specific domains, and scaling spaCy for large text analytics workloads.

The training day will consist of 7 hours of hands-on instruction from Matthew Honnibal and Ines Montani, spaCy's core developers.

The day will be aimed towards people already familiar with the library. This isn't an introductory session where we rehash content you can find in the docs. We want to do a deeper dive with a small number of people, to help you build more effective NLP solutions. To keep things running smoothly and give us enough hands-on time with all participants, the training day will be strictly limited in size. So if you're interested, be sure to book quickly!


Tickets are available on Eventbrite. A limited number of Early Bird tickets are available at a discount, as early confirmations will really help us finish organizing the event. In order to attend the event, you must read and agree to the terms of the Code of Conduct.

We're really looking forward to putting this on, so we hope we can see you there. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to get in touch. You can email us at contact@explosion.ai, or drop us a quick line on Twitter.
