The Apache® Software Foundation Announces Call for Presentations and Registration Open for ApacheCon, its Official Global Conference Series
Attendees to Experience "Tomorrow's Technology Today" and Celebrate Two Decades of Open Source Innovation "The Apache Way" in Chicago, Las Vegas, and Berlin
Wakefield, MA —3 April 2019— The Apache® Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today that its call for presentations (CFPs) and registration are open for ApacheCon™, the ASF's official global conference series.
ApacheCon draws attendees from more than 60 countries to experience "Tomorrow's Technology Today" by showcasing key Open Source technologies independent of business interests, corporate biases, or sales pitches. ApacheCon content is selected entirely by Apache projects and their communities, enabling participants at all levels to learn about the latest innovations in dozens of categories that include Big Data, containers, Cloud, DevOps, IoT, servers, and Web frameworks, among others. Participants learn about Open Source development "The Apache Way", through hands-on sessions, keynotes, real-world case studies, trainings, hackathons, BarCamps, and more in a deliberately intimate, collaborative, vendor-neutral environment.
"The first ApacheCon started 21 years ago and quickly rose to prominence for its strong community presence, both in content and spirit," said Rich Bowen, ASF Vice President of Conferences. "Through the years, ApacheCon has featured Apache projects from virtually every technology area in Open Source, presented by hundreds of individuals from the greater Apache community. We are proud to continue to be the primary gathering of the collective Apache community worldwide, and look forward to celebrating the ASF's 20th Anniversary together at ApacheCon."
Attendees will join The Apache Software Foundation to celebrate its 20th Anniversary at the following events:
- Apache Roadshow: 13-14 May 2019 in Chicago, Illinois
- ApacheCon North America: 9-12 September 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada
- ApacheCon Europe: 22-24 October 2019 in Berlin, Germany
Call for Presentations
The Call for Presentations (CFPs) is open for both ApacheCon North America and Europe events. ApacheCon North America will feature over a dozen tracks, including Apache project summits for Cassandra, CloudStack, Tomcat, and Traffic Control, as well as user community-generated content, such as from the Open Geospatial Consortium, which will be organizing a track for the third consecutive year. Content tracks at ApacheCon Berlin will feature Big Data, Community, IoT, Machine Learning, and Open Source Design, among other categories. The Apache Roadshow/Chicago has just closed its CFP and will be featuring AdTech, FinTech, Insurance, "Made in Chicago" Startups, Podling Shark Tank, Community Diversity, and other categories as part of its program.
Registration is open for all three events, with time-limited, early registration incentives and additional discounted rates available for individual participants as well as groups.
ApacheCon sponsors gain visibility and competitive advantage by engaging with the greater Apache community, industry influencers, and potential future collaborators. Many sponsors consider Apache conference events to be invaluable resources for recruiting top Open Source talent. ApacheCon Platinum Sponsors include Google Cloud, DataStax, and Tencent Cloud. Sponsorship opportunities are available for all three events; prospectuses are available for download from each conference Website.

Travel Assistance Applications Open for ApacheCon NA 2010
The Travel Assistance Committee is now taking in applications for those wanting to attend ApacheCon North America (NA) 2010, which is taking place between the 1st and 5th November in Atlanta.
The Travel Assistance Committee is looking for people who would like to be able to attend ApacheCon, but who need some financial support in order to be able to get there. There are limited places available, and all applications will be scored on their individual merit.
Financial assistance is available to cover travel, accommodation and entrance to the event, either in part or in full, depending on circumstances. However, the support available for those attending only the barcamp is smaller than that for people attending the whole event. The Travel Assistance Committee aims to support all ApacheCons, and cross-project events, and so it may be prudent for those in Asia and the EU to wait for an event closer to them.
More information can be found on the main Apache website at http://www.apache.org/travel/index.html - where you will also find a link to the online application and details for submitting.
Applications for applying for travel assistance are now being accepted, and will close on the 7th July 2010.
Good luck to all those that will apply.
You are welcome to tweet, blog as appropriate.
The Travel Assistance Committee.
