After the first year of registering as a user group and getting to understand the interests of Oracle user community in India, through technology days(TechDay) and technology nights(TechNight) in various cities around the country.  We decided to launch a user conference calling speakers from around the world to share their knowledge and experience with users in India. Our first conference was Sangam09 held during September of 2009 in Bangalore.  We invited Tom Kyte to provide three half day seminar series.  Along with the seminar by Tom Kyte we also invited key speakers from inside and outside Oracle to do sessions for the remaining period of the day.  This was the first event held by us at this large scale.  We had a lot to learn from the interests of attendees and how to reach out to those who could not attend. Our second conference Sangam10 held during September of 2010 in Hyderabad.  We invited Jonathan Lewis to provide two half day seminar series.  Along with the seminar by Jonathan Lewis we also invited key speakers from inside and outside Oracle to do sessions for the remaining period of the day.  Based on a survey we conducted at Sangam09 and Sangam10, we discovered that Oracle users in India preferred to have this event towards the end of the week /weekend.  So they could use their personal time to learn and educate themselves. Sangam11 being hosted on Friday and Saturday is an outcome of this survey and request from our users.


Please have a look at our previous Sangam events:

Sangam12 – Day1, Day2

Sangam11 – Day1, Day2, Video1, video2

Sangam10 – Day1, Day2

Sangam09 – Day1, Day2, Day3



As part of the survey  we also asked attendees who they would like to listen and learn from in 2012.  Once again based on your request we have invited Tom Kyte to do a full day seminar on the Oracle Optimizer. Apart from Tom Kyte we will have break out sessions from various speakers from around the world. We had a great response from several Oracle experts from around the world. To ensure that the papers selected match our users interest, we will request attendees from Sangam12 and Sangam13  to help us with this process.   Through a ranking system with 1 being the lost and 10 being the heighest we will request our volunteers to rank the various abstracts. The papers with the highest scores where selected.



We have opportunities for vendor and promoters to showcase their products and services. Based on the sponsorship level, sponsors are eligible for demo stations where they can demonstrate and or present their products to the attendees.  Sponsorship details can be found here
