First Time Submitting? Don’t Feel Intimidated

CNCF events are an excellent way to get to know the community and share your ideas and the work that you are doing. You do not need to be chief architect or long time industry pundit to submit a proposal, in fact, we strongly encourage first-time speakers to submit talks for all of our events.

Our events are working conferences intended for professional networking and collaboration in the CNCF community and we work closely with our attendees, sponsors and speakers to help keep CNCF events professional, welcoming, and friendly. If you have any questions on how to submit a proposal or the event in general, please contact

Reminder: This is a community conference — so let’s try to avoid blatant product and/or vendor sales pitches.

Consider the Following as You Write Your Proposal

  1. What do you expect the audience to gain from your presentation?
  2. Why should YOU be the one to give this talk? You have a unique story. Tell it.
  3. Be prepared to explain how this fits into the CNCF and overall Open Source Ecosystem.

If you choose to submit multiple talks, please do so with the understanding that if more than one is selected, you will be required to choose only one to speak on. Multiple talk submissions do not necessarily increase your chance of being selected.

We definitely do not expect every presentation to have code snippets and technical deep-dives but here are two things that you should avoid when preparing your proposal because they are almost always rejected due to the fact that they take away from the integrity of our events, and are rarely well-received by conference attendees:

  1. Sales or Marketing Pitches
  2. Unlicensed or Potentially Closed-Source Technologies

There are plenty of ways to give a presentation about projects and technologies without focusing on company-specific efforts. Remember the things to consider that we mentioned above when writing your proposal and think of ways to make it interesting for attendees while still letting you share your experiences, educate the community about an issue, or generate interest in a project.

Sample Submission

Your abstract will be the cornerstone of your proposal.

This is your chance to *sell* your talk to the program committee, so do your best to highlight the problem/contribution/work that you are addressing in your presentation. The technical details are still important, but the relevance of what you are presenting will help the program committee during the selection process.

This is the abstract that will be posted on the website schedule, so please ensure that it is in complete sentences (and not just bullet points), free of typos, and that it is written in the third person (use your name instead of “I”).


Kernel Weather Report (Jon Corbet, – The Linux kernel is at the core of any Linux system; the performance and capabilities of the kernel will, in the end, place an upper bound on what the system can do as a whole. In this presentation, Jon Corbet will review recent events in the kernel development community, discuss the current state of the kernel, the challenges it faces, and look forward to how the kernel may address those challenges.



您可把握此次机会向项目委员会“销售”您的演讲,为此请尽量强调您在演讲中会提及的问题 / 贡献 / 工作。 技术细节不容忽视,但是您所提出的相关性将在甄选过程中为计划委员会提供帮助。



内核天气报告(Jon Corbet,—— Linux内核是任何Linux 系统的核心,最终,内核的性能和功能会对系统的整体运行形成一个上限。演讲中,Jon Corbet 将回顾内核开发社区的近期活动,讨论内核现状、面临的挑战、展望未来以及如何应对挑战。
