Closing date

CFP was closed on Wednesday, 4 March, 2015.

We are still accepting Ignite sessions. If you want to propose one, please send us your abstract and bio to: [email protected]


  • Presentations are held in English; however, you don't need to be a native speaker (many of us aren't either).
  • Be specific! We aren't mind readers - a description of about 20 lines is about right.
  • Detail is good, but not as important as explaining why your proposal would be interesting.
  • Nominations welcome. If you know someone who has content/experience relevant to the DevOps conversation, please point us in their direction.
  • Multiple proposals are welcome - just follow the other rules.

What we're looking for

  • We're very interested in new ideas and novel concepts - especially if this is your first time presenting on the topic.
  • Talks which have a strong human element are particularly compelling. Take a look at the programme from the Belgium 2014 for some great examples.
  • Sincerity and passion go a long way - if you're excited then we are too!

Presentation formats

  1. A proposal for a talk/panel during the conference part : these are 30 minutes slots that will have all people's full attention as everybody will be in that one room.
  2. An Ignite talk that will be presented during the Ignite sessions: these are 5 minutes slots with slides changing every 15 seconds (20 slides total) also presented to all attendees in one room
  3. Openspace session : even without a prepared presentation we welcome the discussion and interaction by having people propose a session on the fly during the openspace opening. Check the openspace format for more information

Even if you don't propose, please consider commenting on proposals submitted by others
