We are pleased to announce the Call for Participation for the FOSDEM
2020 Software Defined Networking devroom!

Important dates:

 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?

  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


  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.
