What is ONOS Build 2016? 

ONOS Build 2016 is our first large scale developer conference bringing ONOS developers and contributors from all over the world to share, learn, align, plan and hack together. The event will span three days and bring together 200 core developers, Community. 

Who is organising the event?

The Open Networking Lab (ON.Lab) is the organizer of the event, in close collaboration with the UPMC / LIP6. Members of the organization committee include:  

David Boswell, ON.Lab, US
William Quiviger, ON.Lab, France. 
Stefano Secci, LIP6, UPMC, France.
Prosper Chemouil, Orange, France


The ONOS community is growing in different geographies around the world and we think that there are many users and contributors that we don’t even know about. There is serious interest and enthusiasm for ONOS in the community and we need to come together to get things done and to figure out the best way for this growing community to work more effectively together.

When and where? 

This event will take place in Paris, France on November 2 - 4, 2016The initial Build event is being held in Europe to help us grow the community there — this will be a catalyst for bringing several new organizations into the community.  Future events will be held in other areas of the world, such as a Build event in Asia in 2017.
