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.

Sincerely,

P4 TST and P4 Summit Organizers
