The OpenStack Ops Meetups team is looking for organizations to that would
like to host a mid-cycle meet up. These are 2-day events where OpenStack
operators get together to discuss their experience operating OpenStack.

More information on these meetings in general is given here :



This call is for a host for an event in February or March 2017 and one in
August 2017. If a location and date range could be found which allows
attendees to attend a related event before or after that is helpful for
attendees to get the most out of their travel budget. For example, open
source and/or cloud and/or linux conferences.


As mid-cycle meetups traditionally rotate regions to balance travel
distances for as many as possible, and since the last one was in New York
City, the February/March meet up is expected to be in EMEA or APAC. The
August event could be in North America.


As host your organization(s) should book and help organize the venue, which
should meet the guidelines (e.g. having wifi, presentation facilities), see
Ops_Meetups_are_planned. Ideally any venue proposed would have one large
room (up to 120 people) and several smaller rooms (20-40 people).

Some hosts have been able to provide lunch and even breakfast but that is
not a requirement. Other organizations may underwrite an evening event
after day 1 (the host is not expected to).

Please note that we are currently seeking expressions of interest only, no
booking should be made until after the proposal is accepted (see below).


If you wish to host a meeting, simply contact the ops meet up team (see

We (the team) meet regularly in an open publicized process. Proposals to
host will be considered and collaborated on. If there are more than one for
a particular meet up, the proposals are voted on and the most popular
suitable proposal is accepted. Full meeting minutes and minutes are
published at the end of each meeting.

If you have more questions:

My employer (Bloomberg L.P.) sponsored the most recent mid-cycle meet up. I
will be happy to answer questions relating to the process for hosting one
of these events or you can simply join us on IRC (#openstack-operators on
