ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing a new OSM Hackfest on 31 May to 4 June 2021. The event will be run remotely, allowing participants to join participate from their homes or offices.

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

Registration deadline is May 15th


The OSM#11 Hackfest will be fully dedicated to Network Function packaging and onboarding to OSM Release NINE bringing a brand new challenge to OSM users and developers.

During the Hackfest kick off, an overview on NF Onboarding in OSM will be provided by OSM community experts. Participants will be organized in teams and chose a Network Function. Through the Hackfest week and with the mentoring of OSM community experts, they will be challenged to build a package, including instantiation, Day-1 and Day-2 operations, for the NF of their choice. The last day, each team will have the opportunity to demonstrate their achievements and the best onboarding demonstration will be awarded!

Who should attend

  • VNF vendors, who want to onboard their VNF in OSM following best practices
  • System Integrators, who want to develop their expertise with OSM
  • Service Providers, who want to get first hand operational experience with OSM
  • Students and Researchers, who are using or considering OSM as platform for their research activities in networking
  • OSM users and developers willing to share, learn and test with the community
