Unveiling the Schedule for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2024

As cutting-edge technologies like AI, eBPF, WASM, and research around environmental sustainability impact the cloud native ecosystem, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon will again bring together the unique and diverse community of cloud native technologists to learn from one another. Event co-chairs – Aparna Subramanian of Shopify, Kasper Nissen of Lunar, and Nikhita Raghunath of VMware – worked with a program committee of 128 community members and 22 track chairs, to review 2541 incredible submissions, curating a schedule that will help attendees make sense of the rapidly expanding and changing landscape. The conference this year will offer 223 sessions, keynotes, lightning talks, and breakout sessions, as well as 90 CNCF project maintainer-hosted sessions providing the opportunity to dive deep into each technology.

“There are so many exciting things happening in our community, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with my fellow co-chairs, curating the schedule, reviewing over 2500 submissions in the last 2.5 weeks!” said Kasper Nissen, Staff Engineer at Lunar and KubeCon + CloudNativeCon conference co-chair. “Based on the content we have received, attendees can expect to dive deeper into artificial intelligence, including new requirements, and how to ensure privacy, security, and compliance. Platform engineering is another big topic to look out for as it expands into the ML/AI space. Plus, Kubernetes turns 10 this year. In short, an inspiring and informative conference awaits attendees and hope to see you there!”

The community-curated schedule consists of a vast array of thought-provoking talks, including:

  • Keynote: Optimizing Performance and Sustainability for AI – Lu Qiu, AI Platform Tech Lead, Alluxio; Susan Wu, Outbound Product Manager, Google; Victor Jakubiuk, Head of AI, Ampere Computing; Ricardo Rocha, Computing Engineer, CERN
