The OpenInfra Summit CFP, project updates, and more!


Spotlight On: Share your Open Source Expertise at the 2023 Summit!

The CFP for the OpenInfra Summit Vancouver (June 13-15, 2022) is NOW LIVE! Check out the full list of tracks and submit a talk on your topic of expertise.

The CFP for this year’s OpenInfra Summit includes presentations, panels and hands-on workshops covering over 30 open source projects. Expect to hear about the intersection of many open source infrastructure projects, including Ceph, Kubernetes, Magma, ONAP, OPNFV and the projects hosted by the OpenInfra Foundation: Airship, Kata Containers, OpenInfra Labs, OpenStack, StarlingX and Zuul.


The CFP closes January 10, 2023, at 11:59 p.m PT

We are also now accepting submissions for Forum sessions! For the Forum, submit discussion-oriented sessions (not presentations), including challenges around different software components, working group progress or best practices to tackle common issues.
