Call for proposals

How it works

  • Our subject matter experts will review each submitted abstract and vote using a 1-5 scale.
  • Selection committees—made up of representatives across Red Hat—will review the highest-rated sessions and begin building the agenda.
  • You’ll be notified whether or not your proposal was accepted or declined.

Learn. Network. Experience open source.

It’s only natural that the premier open source event brings together thousands of professionals to learn, network, and experience open source. At Red Hat Summit, you'll find something for every interest level, and need, including:

  • Hundreds of sessions led by the best and brightest in open source.
  • Hands-on experience with the newest Red Hat technologies.
  • Face-to-face interaction with the product experts who built—and can demo—the most innovative technologies.
  • The chance to grow your network, reconnect with peers, and make new partnerships.
