eBPF Summit 2021

Back by popular demand, we’re excited to announce that the call for papers is now open for the eBPF Summit 2021, a virtual event, targeted at DevOps, platform architects and developers.

eBPF is quickly becoming one of the most talked about technologies in our industry - enabling a new generation of networking, observability and security tools. The eBPF Summit is targeted at users and potential users of this groundbreaking technology, who want a better understanding of what it is, and how to use it to solve real problems.  

This free summit will include presentations from those leading the open source eBPF community and from eBPF power-users. Last year’s talks included keynotes from Netflix, Facebook, Datadog, and Google and a wide range of insightful user lightning talks. Participants will again have a chance to ask questions of the speakers and chat with peers on a Slack forum. We’re inviting eBPF users, contributors and community members to participate in this gathering.

eBPF talks

You are invited to submit talks describing how you're using eBPF and eBPF-based open source projects to solve real world problems. To be clear, you do not have to be writing raw eBPF programs yourself to speak - we expect many speakers to be leveraging eBPF via derivative projects (such as are listed here).

We're now accepting submissions for lightning talks of 5-10 minutes 

Lighting talks will need to be pre-recorded. We do ask that the speaker is present to answer questions and interact with the community.  

Suggested Topics

We invite talks on using eBPF to solve real-world problems, such as:

  • Introduction & Getting Started with eBPF
  • Observing, Tracing, and Debugging Applications with eBPF
  • eBPF-based Networking, Load-Balancing, & Network Security
  • Performance Troubleshooting with eBPF
  • Securing Systems, CI/CD pipelines, Networks, ... with eBPF
  • eBPF-based Observability & Monitoring
  • Runtimes, Kernel Implementations, & eBPF Libraries
  • How to write eBPF programs in higher-level Languages
  • eBPF Projects (bpftrace, Cilium, Falco, ...)
  • Future & Outlook of eBPF
  • Troubleshooting Networking Issues with eBPF
  • ...

This is an open-source conference. Please only submit talks covering open-source code. Vendor pitches for proprietary solutions will be laughed at not accepted.
