This is your chance for making your voice heard in this amazing context!

First-time speaker?

First time submitting? You do not need to be a chief architect or long-time industry pundit to submit a proposal, in fact, we strongly encourage first-time speakers to submit talks for this event. And we are looking for many more diverse voices!

What information should you include?

Consider the following as you write your proposal:

  • What do you expect the audience to gain from your presentation?
  • Why should YOU be the one to give this talk? You have a unique story. Tell it.
  • Explain how this fits into Kubernetes Community Days Italy. Ideally, we would like to group talks into two tracks:
        - Community, focusing on cloud native projects and technologies.
        - Enterprise, focusing on use cases, and lessons learned.


We definitely do not expect every presentation to have code snippets and technical deep-dives but here are two things that you should avoid when preparing your proposal because they are almost always rejected due to the fact that they take away from the integrity of our events, and are rarely well-received by conference attendees:

  • Sales or Marketing Pitches
  • Unlicensed or Potentially Closed-Source Technologies
  • Talks presented at previous local conferences

There are plenty of ways to give a presentation about projects and technologies without focusing on company-specific efforts. Let’s give room to the community!
