KVM Forum 2020 is becoming a virtual experience this year in light of
the COVID-19 situation and will take place online on October 28-30, as
The virtual event will continue to deliver the same content you would
have received in-person (keynotes, conference sessions, BoFs, co-located
events) as well as attendee collaboration, networking tools, a "hallway
track" and much more. And just like previous years, all content will be
made available for free after the event.
In order to allow everyone to present at KVM Forum, including people
who might not have been able to travel to Dublin, we are extending the
submission deadline for presentations for 6 more weeks!

* CFP Notifications: Tuesday, September 1
* Schedule Announcement: Tuesday, September 1
* Slide Due Date: Monday, October 26
