ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing the 7th OSM Hackfest on 9-13 September 2019.

The event will be hosted by University of Patras in Patras, Greece), co-located with the OSM Mid-Release#7 meeting, offering a great opportunity to share and learn with OSM developers and module leaders, and explore opportunities for synergies and collaboration.

Participation to OSM Hackfests is free and open to all upon Registration


Conference and Cultural Centre of the University of Patras

University Campus,

265 04 Patras



This OSM Hackfest will allow new users to get familiar with OSM Release SIX and exercise all the main functionalities, from basic operations (installation, setup, common operations, etc.) to most advanced capabilities, such as 5G network slicing with a big focus on VNF on-boarding activities covering Day 0/1/2 operations.

In addition, experienced users and developers will have the opportunity to hack into OSM, build complex examples, fine-tune, test and demonstrate Release SEVEN and experimental features on the OSM Remote Labs network.

OSM & 5G Verticals

Wednesday afternoon will be dedicated to projects and initiatives leveraging OSM to accelerate the development, standardization, testing and / or deployment of 5G services for different verticals: Automotive, Smart Cities, Smart Manufacturing, Media, ... Should you be interested in presenting your work please reach out to OSM_TECH@list.etsi.org

Remote Labs

During OSM Hackfests participants build and try real examples of OSM interaction with different VIMs and NFV infrastructures that are kindly made available by our community members at ETSI or through the OSM Remote Labs network.
