Open Infrastructure Event
The world runs on open infrastructure. At the OpenStack Summit, you’ll learn about the mix of open technologies building the modern infrastructure stack, including OpenStack, Kubernetes, Docker, Ansible, Ceph, OVS, OpenContrail, OPNFV, and more. Whether you are pursuing a private, public or multi-cloud approach, the OpenStack Summit is the place to network, skill up and plan your cloud strategy.

The grants will cover a combination of flights, accommodation and access pass to the Summit. More details here.

How to apply for a Visa
If you require a visa letter to travel to United States for the OpenStack Summit please fill out this form.
Before submitting a request, please check here if your country is a part of the Visa Waiver Program. The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) allows citizens of participating countries to travel to the United States without a visa for stays of 90 days or less, when they meet all necessary requirements. You can learn more about the Visa Waiver Program here. If you travel on a passport issued by a country NOT on this list, you will require a Visitor Visa to travel to the United States.
If you are unsure whether you require a visa or not, please visit this page and enter the country that issued your passport and the reason for your trip, and it will tell you what visa to apply for if a visa is required for your travel.
