Here at Red Hat, we are gearing up for Red Hat Summit 2017, to be held May 2-4 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. We hope you’re gearing up as well, and we invite you to join us in sharing your ideas, insights and innovations in a presentation. The call for proposals is now open through December 2.
Red Hat Summit showcases the latest open source IT solutions that power the enterprise, and it’s a high-energy week full of innovation, education and collaboration. Last years’ Red Hat Summit was our biggest yet with 5,500 attendees, and we look forward to more growth as open source continues to become more mainstream.
We had some great telecommunications presentations last year as well as a full slate of presentations in other vertical industries such as financial services and healthcare. We hope to see our vertical industry partners, customers and other industry leaders join us for sessions again this year to inspire new forms of collaboration and share new methodologies.
Are you ready to get started?
- Review the submission guide for session type descriptions, tips on writing abstracts and more.
- You may also want to review recorded sessions from last year’s Red Hat Summit.
- Then propose a topic, or topics, you’d like to present.
Our subject matter experts will review each submitted abstract and vote using a 1-5 scale. The selection committees—made up of representatives from across Red Hat—will review the highest-rated sessions and begin building the agenda. Selected speakers will be notified in January 2017, and registration is scheduled to open that same month.
