Call for Presentations

This is the 2022 edition of Apache Airflow Summit and we are looking for great speakers who will provide engaging and interesting content for the event.

If you have any questions regarding the CFP or would like guidance or support from the content team while you are working on your submission, feel free to send a message at the #airflowsummit-speakers channel in the Apache Airflow slack.

Also, if you are not sure of what would be a good idea to submit or would like to know what has worked best on previous editions, check out this article with submission tips for Airflow Summit.


Airflow Summit 2022 will be from May 23 to May 27, 2022.

Format of the event

The event will be online and have blocks of sessions at different times of the day in order to provide live content to attendees in different parts of the world. We will also be promoting and supporting local "watch parties" so that members of the Apache Airflow community can meet and network locally.

Speakers are welcome to present from wherever they are, or attend a watch party and present from there (we will coordinate with the watch parties in order to arrange for the live streaming of these sessions).

With the exception of lightning talks and workshops, sessions will either be 20 minutes or 40 minutes, and blocks will include time for Q&A.  We will feature:

  • Technical talks 
  • Case studies
  • Technical deep dives
  • Lightning talks (10 min)
  • Panels 
  • Workshops (2-3 hours)


We have defined different tracks to help you get an idea of contents that would be interesting for the Airflow Summit audience:

  • Trends. It has been six years since Airflow was invented. In what way are we building data pipelines nowadays? What new and upcoming tools or strategies are you using? 
  • Data governance (security, privacy, lineage, data quality). How do you manage sensitive data? How to provide observability for downstream users? What is data lineage and how does it relate to Airflow? How do you solve data quality and compliance complexity in your pipelines? 
  • Productionizing machine learning. How does Airflow fit in the ML workflow? How can you set up automated a/b testing? How do you build and deploy ML models to a production environment? How do you update your model with new features? How do teams of data engineers and scientists collaborate in ML contexts?
  • Airflow internals. Technical deep dive into how specific components of Airflow work. How to do advanced configuration or hacking Airflow to make it do things it couldn't do before.
  • Airflow in the enterprise. Talks offer an exploration into business Airflow use cases across industries, ROI, best practices, relevant business metrics, compliance requirements for specific industries, and testimonials.
  • Community. The Apache way, how and why it works. How to contribute. Non-coding contributions are important too.
  • Open. Anything else not covered in the other tracks that you think is of interest to this community.

Non-coding related talks

Following Apache's "Community over code" motto - there will also be non-coding and diverse skilled members of the community who not only code but contribute to the overall health and strength of the community - this will be a great chance to meet them and see some of the talks. If you have a subject that you would like to submit in that area - you are more than welcome!

Expected attendees

Our attendees will be a healthy mixture of:

  •  Data Scientists
  •  Data Engineers
  •  Business Intelligence Analysts
  •  DevOps Engineers using and running the Apache Airflow
  •  "to be" users of Apache Airflow - who consider moving from other workflow engines or simply introduce one in their daily job
  •  Users and developers of products that are built on top of Apache Airflow
  •  Members of other communities that Apache Airflow Community partners with and collaborates
  •  Non-coding members of Apache Airflow Community who help the community to thrive
