KVM Forum 2023

KVM Forum is an annual event that presents a rare opportunity for developers and users to discuss the state of Linux virtualization technology and plan for the challenges ahead. Sessions include updates on the state of the KVM virtualization stack, planning for the future, and many opportunities for attendees to collaborate.

This year's event will be held in Brno, Czech Republic on June 14-15, 2023. It will be in-person only and will be held right before the DevConf.CZ open source community conference.

June 14 will be at least partly dedicated to a hackathon or "day of BoFs". This will provide time for people to get together and discuss strategic decisions, as well as other topics that are best solved within smaller groups.


The deadline for submitting presentations is April 2, 2023 - 11:59 PM PDT.

Accepted speakers will be notified on April 17, 2023.
