Kubernetes Forum Seoul + Sydney CFP Guide
Kubernetes Forums in global cities bring together international and local experts with adopters, developers, and practitioners in an accessible and compact format. The Forums are designed to promote face-to-face collaboration and deliver rich educational experiences. At the Forums, attendees can engage with the leaders of Kubernetes and other CNCF-hosted projects and help set direction for the cloud native ecosystem. Kubernetes Forums have both a beginner and an advanced track; about half of the speakers are international experts and half are from the local area.
International and local speakers will arrive in Seoul no later than Sunday, December 8. The CFP-based sessions occur Monday, December 9. On Tuesday, December 10, attendees select among several co-located events. These may be cloud- or distribution-specific training or any other topics of interest to Kubernetes Forum attendees. Tuesday night, the sponsors and international speakers will take a red-eye flight to Sydney and recover Wednesday, where the time zone is only 1 hour different. The international speakers will present the same material from the Seoul event on Thursday, December 12, interspersed with a slate of new talks from different local speakers in Sydney. On Friday, December 13, the co-located events repeat.

Local to Sydney or Seoul, and, it’s Your 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
