We are pleased to announce the Call for Participation for the FOSDEM 2020 Software Defined Networking devroom!
|Nov 24th 2019||Submission deadline for talk proposals|
|Dec 15th 2019||Announcement of the final schedule|
|Feb 1st 2019||Software Defined Networking devroom|
Talks covering any projects or technologies within the networking domain are welcome, with the only condition being that the project or technology must be free and open source. Software Defined Networking continues to be an exciting and growing field and FOSDEM gives an opportunity to reach a large audience of knowledgeable, highly technical, free and open source software activists.
This year the devroom topics will include the following fields.
|Domain||IoT, Cloud, Enterprise, Service Provider, Wireless and Cellular.|
|Physical||low power, mesh, high throughput, low latency, optical, wireless|
|Infrastructure||switching, routing, load balancing, translation, authentic, crypto, detection, intercept|
|Tooling||libraries, frameworks, tracing, debugging, domain specific languages and extensions.|
|Telemetry||counters & statistics, interference, analysis, automation.|
|Validation||performance, latency, packet manipulation & fuzzing, traffic generators.|
|Orchestration||management, network-layer plugins and controllers.|
This year the devroom will focus on cloud infrastructure, and the challenges of scaling and resiliency posed by cloud deployments - what does it take to build a fast and robust cloud native network? What does this mean in the age of edge cloud?
A non-exhaustive representative list of the projects and topics we would like to see on the schedule are:
|Frameworks||DPDK, eBPF, XDP|
|Switching||Snabb, OpenvSwitch, Tungsten Fabric, Lagopus, FastClick|
|Stacks||Linux, *BSD, FD.io, F-Stack, DMM, mTCP, Seastar, YAStack|
|Controllers||Istio/Envoy, Network Service Mesh, Neutron, CNI, Canal, ODL, ONOS, Plumgrid, OVN, Contrail|
|Routing||FRRouting, BIRD, Netopeer, Go-BGP|
|Management||ONAP, Open-O, ManageIQ, Juju, OpenBaton, Tacker, OSM, Ganglia, NetSNMP, PNDA.io|
|Security||Suricata, Snort, Zeek|
|Tooling||VSPerf, CSIT, TRex, Moongen, Scapy, Warp17|
Talks should be aimed at a technical audience, but should not assume that attendees are already familiar with your project or how it solves a given problem. Talk proposals may cover very specific solutions to a problem, or may be a higher level project overview for lesser known projects.
Proposals should be made through the FOSDEM Pentabarf submission tool. You do not need to create a new Pentabarf account if you already have one from a past year.
Please select the "Software Defined Networking" as the track and ensure you include the following information when submitting a proposal:
|Person||First/Last/Public Name||Your name.|
|Person||Photo||Please provide a photo.|
|Event||Event Title||This is the title of your talk - please be descriptive to encourage attendance.|
|Event||Abstract||Short abstract of one or two paragraphs.|
|Event||Duration||Please indicate the length of your talk; 15 min, 30 min or 45 min|
The deadline for submissions is November 24th, 2019. FOSDEM will be held on the weekend of February 1-2, 2020 and the Software Defined Networking devroom will take place on Saturday, February 1, 2020.
