The conference brought together researchers, developers, students and industry affiliates for hands-on training and discussions about recent dataplane acceleration developments and future advancements. The extensive hands-on training included an introduction and advanced topics on OVS, P4 and the NFP architecture, Actions in C, as well as new approaches to dataplane acceleration such as eBPF.
Below is the draft agenda for the conference. We expect additional changes will occur over the course of a few weeks. Please continue to check back.
