Preparing to Submit Your Proposal

While it is not our intention to provide you with strict instructions on how to prepare your proposal, we hope you will take a moment to review the following guidelines that we have put together to help you prepare the best submission possible. To get started, here are three things that you should consider before submitting your proposal:

  1. What are you hoping to get from your presentation?
  2. What do you expect the audience to gain from your presentation?
  3. How will your presentation help better the ecosystem?

There are plenty of ways to give a presentation about projects and technologies without focusing on company-specific efforts. Remember the things to consider that we mentioned above when writing your proposal and think of ways to make it interesting for attendees while still letting you share your experiences, educate the community about an issue, or generate interest in a project.

Writing Your Proposal

Your session title will be the main point of reference for attendees to decide if they want to attend your talk, so choose it carefully. The title should accurately reflect the content of your talk and comply with The Linux Foundation’s Inclusive Language Initiative. Please use title case when inputting your title.

In the session description, make the most of your opportunity to pitch your talk to the program committee by emphasizing its problem, contribution, and relevance. Don’t forget technical details, but keep the big picture in mind. Your proposal’s description should be focused, detailed, and comply with The Linux Foundation’s Inclusive Language Initiative. It will appear on the website schedule if accepted, so ensure it’s error-free, uses full sentences, and written in the third person. This description can make or break an attendee’s decision to attend your talk, so provide enough information to aid their choice, and be concise. The competition for presentation slots is high, so a well-crafted, engaging abstract will improve your chances of acceptance.

Use this opportunity to elaborate on why your presentation is important and why attendees should care. Explain how your content will benefit the ecosystem or share any other relevant information with the co-chairs and program committee. We understand that this can be a challenging question to answer, but like the abstract, the relevance of your presentation is crucial, and it’s as significant as the content in determining acceptance.

Please indicate whether your submission is a case study. In other words, is your submission a report of an organization’s implementation of something, such as a practice, a product, a system, a service, or combination thereof? The case study can be thought of as a real-world test of how the implementation works, and how well it works.

If you have presented this talk before within the past year at a LF Asia, LLC, CNCF or Linux Foundation event, please explain the significant differences between that presentation and the one you are proposing in your session description.

Please list all CNCF-hosted graduated, incubating, or sandbox software(s) as well as all open source projects that your presentation will be focused on if applicable.

Since the Program Committee reviews numerous proposals, additional resources can assist in assessing a speaker’s proficiency and presentation skills. Please provide a video or audio recording of a previous talk you have given. If you do not have any prior recordings of your talk, you may create a brief YouTube video of yourself speaking for a few minutes.

How to Give a Great Talk

We want to make sure submitters receive resources to help put together a great submission and if accepted, give the best presentation possible. To help with this, we recommend viewing seasoned speaker Dawn Foster’s in-depth talk: Getting Over Your Imposter Syndrome to Become a Conference Speaker – Dawn Foster, VMware

Example title

OCI, CRI, ??: Making Sense of the Container Runtime Landscape in Kubernetes

Example Description

You’ve probably heard about the OCI—a standardization effort to share a common definition for container runtime, image, and image distribution. Add to that the CRI (container runtime interface) in Kubernetes—designed to abstract the container runtime from the kubelet—and you may start to wonder what all these standards and interfaces mean for you in a Kubernetes world.

As of this year, a long list of runtimes, including CNCF projects containerd and cri-o, all implement the CRI. But did you know there are quite a few others? The unique number of CRI combinations is growing, all of which use the common OCI definitions for runtime and image interoperability.

But how would you decide which container runtime is right for you? Clearly each one has tradeoffs. This talk will help describe the current landscape and give you details on the why and how of each CRI implementation available today.

Example Benefits to the ecosystem

It is a repeating comment across the CNCF ecosystem that the number of choices for container runtime is confusing, especially for those who are newer to our ecosystem. Even for those who many have heard the names–Docker, containerd, cri-o–even they are curious as to the reasons why there are many varied runtimes available to implement the CRI interface for Kubernetes, and what is the history that brought us to this point.

This talk helps bring clarity to the container runtime landscape, and especially shows the interesting work being done in additional isolation technologies like gVisor, AWS Firecracker, and Kata containers and why that may be of value to consider for certain security or workload constraints.

In the end, especially as we have two major runtimes as CNCF projects, this talk hopefully brings a level of insight to practitioners, developers, and operators as to why clusters may choose various runtimes and how new features in Kubernetes like RuntimeClass are making it easier to support mixed clusters that can support the needs of workloads with different isolation features or requirements.



OCI、CRI、??: 在Kubernetes中理解容器运行时景观


您可能已经听说过OCI——这是一项标准化努力,旨在共享容器运行时、镜像和镜像分发的通用定义。再加上Kubernetes中的CRI(容器运行时接口)——旨在将容器运行时从kubelet中抽象出来——您可能会开始想知道所有这些标准和接口在Kubernetes世界中对您意味着什么。 从今年开始,包括CNCF项目containerd和cri-o在内的长列表的运行时都实现了CRI。但您知道还有很多其他的吗?独特的CRI组合数量正在增长,所有这些组合都使用通用的OCI定义来实现运行时和镜像互操作性。 但是,您如何决定哪个容器运行时适合您?显然,每个容器运行时都有权衡。本次演讲将帮助描述当前的情况,并为您提供有关每个CRI实现的原因和方法的详细信息。


在CNCF生态系统中,有一个反复出现的评论是容器运行时的选择数量令人困惑,特别是对于那些对我们的生态系统较新的人来说。即使是那些听过Docker、containerd、cri-o等名称的人,他们也很好奇为什么有许多不同的运行时可用于实现Kubernetes的CRI接口,以及是什么历史使我们达到了这一点。 这个演讲有助于澄清容器运行时的景观,特别是展示了在额外的隔离技术(如gVisor、AWS Firecracker和Kata容器)方面正在进行的有趣工作,以及为什么这可能对某些安全或工作负载限制具有价值。 最终,特别是我们有两个主要运行时作为CNCF项目,这个演讲希望为从业者、开发人员和运营商带来一定程度的洞察,了解为什么集群可能会选择不同的运行时,以及Kubernetes中的新功能(如RuntimeClass)如何使支持支持具有不同隔离特性或要求的工作负载的混合集群变得更加容易。
