The Linux Foundation and AT&T Labs Research and the member institutions of the ONAP community are organizing an ONAP Academic Summit. This event will provide an ONAP tutorial, hands-on experience with ONAP, and will highlight some of the exciting Research opportunities.

This event is open to academic facility, graduate students, and postdocs. To apply, attendees will be required write up a half-page bio and a paragraph about their research work and interests in ONAP and/or SDN technologies.

The NSF is also sponsoring travel grants for qualified academic attendees (particularly students). Attendees who need financial support are encouraged to apply for the travel grants. Higher priority will be given to students who demonstrate serious research interests in ONAP/SDN and who would not be able to attend the event without a travel grant. The evaluation will be based on the registration write up detailed above and a letter from the advisor stating the financial need. If applying for the travel grant, please include your advisor letter in your event application.
