*Dear P4 Community,*


We have made the difficult decision to cancel the “in-person”2020 P4 and 
Programmable Forwarding Summit at Stanford this year due to the 
potential risk of the COVID-19 virus. We feel this is in the best 
interest of the entire P4 community.

As an alternative, we are planning an expert roundtable seriesto bring 
exciting keynotes, plenary and panel discussions.  Our current thinking 
is we will capture the planned presentations and discussions with 
technical experts using a lively roundtable format, and make these 
available as a series for on-demand consumption (think of it as a 
Netflix drop of a full series of Game of Thrones episodes!).

With this new format, we will continue to accept talk proposals through 
the P4 Summit submission web site (https://summit-cfp-2020.p4.org/), 
however, due to the change in the format, we can no longer accept demo 
or poster proposals. The P4 Summit technical program committee will 
shortlist talks for the expert roundtable series from the submissions. 
In fact, if traveling to the event was inhibiting your ability to submit 
a proposal and/or attend, this new format will make it much easier to 
participate and contribute to the program.

We have extended the deadline by one week for proposals and look forward 
to your participation:

    Call for Proposals (CFP)

CFP Submission Website <https://summit-cfp-2020.p4.org/>

New deadline for submission: March 20, 2020

Notification: April 3, 2020

We will be releasing more details about the event and this new format as 
we work them out. And of course, reach out to the P4 Summit Organizers 
if you have ideas on how to make it more effective.
