Macro Trends Shaping Open Networking - David Lenrow, Huawei
This is the science fiction and entertainment part of your program. Topics covered will not include what you can buy today and how to deploy it. This presentation will address a number of topics that are strongly influencing the evolution of the nascent SDN and open source networking movements. You may agree or disagree strongly, but you'll have to think. Topics covered will include
• Data Planes become Programmable
• Wire protocols become irrelevant
• Disaggregation - Old stuff cheap or wonderful new control plane?
• Micro-services, What if there was a unique IP address for each application/service?
• Common interfaces, When network solutions become fungible?
• Not your father's open source - risks in the new era of vendor initiated open source
• The Migration challenge: Hardware for tomorrows control plane

The Law of Subtraction: How Working with Less Can Help You Achieve More - Heidi Joy Tretheway, OpenStack Foundation
The Law of Subtraction: How working with less can help you achieve more (Heidi Joy Tretheway, OpenStack Foundation) - In the open source community, we often hear, "I wish I had more--people, money or time." But what if the success or failure of a project isn't determined by more? What if working with less works better?

This provocative presentation introduces the Law of Subtraction tailored to the unique challenges of open source project managers. Global marketing strategist Heidi Joy Tretheway identifies five subtraction strategies that managers and executives can use when resources and timelines are tight. Find out how to juggle priorities despite the "tyranny of the urgent" and how to influence volunteers and indirect reports. Also, discover your managerial blind spots--unique to your work style--that might be undermining your team's performance.

Meet TOSCA, the Hot New Standard on the Block! - Sivan Barzilay; GigaSpaces; Chris Lauwers, Ubicity; Derek Palma; Vnomic
OASIS TOSCA (Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications) is hot! Join us to find out why open source projects such as OpenStack, Alien4Cloud, Aria, and others are joining many leading independent software vendors and cloud providers in using the TOSCA open standard to define, deploy, manage and administer their cloud applications across a broad range of cloud platforms and technologies, such as OpenStack, Kubernetes, and Docker.  Come learn the TOSCA basics and understand the benefits of using TOSCA as a higher level of abstraction for your cloud solutions.

Using TOSCA to Model Your Network Services - Sivan Barzily; GigaSpaces; Chris Lauwers, Ubicity; Derek Palma; Vnomic
NFV is the hot new topic in telecom. Since telecom architectures are quite complex, it is very important that the orchestration of the various VNFs and components is executed in a standardized manner that is portable to any infrastructure. OASIS TOSCA (Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications) is an open standard domain specific language, with profiles based on popular languages such as YAML, that describes the topology of cloud based services, their components, relationships, and management processes. In this talk, we will explain how TOSCA can be used to model any VNF and network service and its components in a multi-VIM environment and present various TOSCA use cases being implemented in the real world.

How SDOs and open source projects can work together - Steven Wright, ETSI/AT&T; Nan Chen, MEF; Dan Pitt; ONF and Margaret Chiosi, OPNFV/AT&T
Comparing open source communities and standards specifications communities as industry collaboration vehicles to enable markets, Dr. Wright will illustrate that the complementary work products, roles and processes can enable more efficient interaction between the respective communities to facilitate the commercial impact of open source in industrial markets and critical infrastructure roles where standards compliance processes traditionally facilitate interoperability and other public purposes.

What is OPNFV and What Does it Deliver? - Christopher Price, Ericsson; Frank Brockners, Cisco
The OPNFV collaborative development project has now delivered it’s second release, Brahmaputra. While the project continuous to grow, some confusion remains around what it is that the OPNFV community actually does.
This session will outline and discuss the objectives and activities of the OPNFV community, the key values this provides to the industry and importantly activities the community avoids. In the context of the activity and challenges faced during Brahmaputra, as the community worked to integrate 38 parallel projects for the release, we will outline the intentions activities and outcomes of this work; hard lessons learnt, achievements and future plans.
