2015 OpenStack Foundation Events Plan and Calls for Papers Available [feedly]

2015 OpenStack Foundation Events Plan and Calls for Papers Available
// The OpenStack Blog

The 2015 events plan is now available on the Global Events Calendar wiki.  The detailed spreadsheet covers industry events, Summits (dates and locations), as well as regional OpenStack Days organized by the community.  If you're interested in sponsoring or speaking at a planned OpenStack Day, please contact the contact listed in the spreadsheet.  If you are interested in organizing an OpenStack Day in your region, please reference and contact


We'd like your input on the industry events plan. The events calendar is fully editable, so you can update the following criteria:

  • Share if your organization is attending, sponsoring or exhibiting (COLUMN G)
  • Provide feedback or ideas on events (COLUMN H)
  • Add vendor-independent industry events to the calendar (insert in chronological order and complete ALL criteria)


The Foundation is sponsoring two industry events with Pavilions, offering the ecosystem the opportunity to exhibit and/or speak in an OpenStack context, at a much lower cost than direct sponsorship.  Pavilions with speaking opportunities are available for these international events.  Commitments must be in place by January 31, 2015.  If you're interested in joining us, please begin your internal authorization process today.
