OpenPOWER Summit Europe 2018

RAI Centre, Amsterdam

October 3-4, 2018


The second OpenPOWER Summit Europe will be held in Amsterdam on October 3rd – 4th 2018.

The event will have a strong technical emphasis and bring together developers, engineers, executives, decision makers and researchers from across the OpenPOWER End Users and Developer Ecosystem.

Developer Training, Keynotes and technical sessions will provide a rich variety of content from technical deep dives to recent OpenPOWER commercial successes, with a particular emphasis on the European region.

There’ll be true software and hardware developer training opportunities, longer technical sessions including Birds of Feather (BoFs) and bring your own computer sessions as well as an expo area where OpenPOWER Members will present their solutions.

Expect sessions on PCIe Gen4, CAPI, OpenCAPI, Linux, OpenBMC, GPU, FPGA, I/O, Power Architecture, performance optimisation, system management and more.

Details on Event registration for the Summit will be announced in mid August.


The detailed schedule for the summit is still being finalised but we can offer a high level view.

  • A planned joint Open Compute/OpenPOWER technical session, details TBC
  • Kickoff/Keynotes

Participating in the Summit

If you would like to present at the Summit, please review the Call for Participation document here.

Sessions are of 30 minutes duration and, as a technical event, preference will be given to presentations of a technical rather than commercial nature. Sessions demonstrating end user solutions are also welcome. Sessions will be recorded and made available after the Summit via the OpenPOWER website.

OpenPOWER Members and other interested parties are also invited to apply to present solutions- software and hardware in the Exhibition space. For more information on this please contact us at [email protected]
