ONF is excited to announce the launch of “ONF Spotlight,” a new virtual forum series that will deliver the insights you need to stay on top of the fast growing open source movement for building next generation mobile and broadband infrastructures. This new forum incorporates a combination of virtual live and on-demand content that is easily accessible from anywhere in the world opening up access to a broad audience. With the advent of COVID-19, this new forum enables us to continue to foster ONF community participation, share updates from across the ONF ecosystem, and maintain the excitement and momentum already underway in 2020 for ONF open source solutions.

ONF Spotlight offers something for everyone, and will span from coverage of industry level insights and perspectives to deep dive technical updates and open source-based demonstrations. Each Spotlight in the series will focus on a specific topic area and include live expert keynote sessions, panel discussions, in-depth technical breakout sessions and demonstrations. Through live and online Q&As, participants will be able to communicate and engage with speakers directly. Each Spotlight's live keynotes will be open to anyone to participate. Recorded content will be available to ONF Members only for a period following the first keynote for each topic area within the series. After that time, all the content will be made publicly accessible. 

The ONF community is invited to participate as an integral part of the series. There are multiple ways in which you can participate, including: individual presentations, panel discussions and demonstrations. Proposals can be submitted using the ONF Spotlight Call for Proposals (CFP). A committee of industry experts together with the ONF technical team will review submissions and assemble the program for each Spotlight.
