For the past 17 years, Intel has hosted an internal event called the Open Source Technology Summit (OSTS), bringing hundreds of business and technical leaders from across the company together to discuss the trends, technologies and innovations helping
shape the open source ecosystem. We have wanted to include non-Intel attendees for many years and for the first time in 2019, we will be inviting media, partners, and developers to OSTS, taking place from May 14−16 in the scenic Columbia River Gorge,

OSTS is an technology conference, and its strength has always been the depth of technical content and engineering discussions. Invitees will join the largest gathering of Intel open source experts to discuss the technologies and trends shaping the industry,
and engage with Intel leaders working on these projects. Please note that due to limited availability this year, the event is invite-only in 2019.


The OSTS 2019 agenda will feature keynotes, 50+ technical sessions, panels, workshops, and demos covering the full range of open source programs and technologies Intel is involved in, including:

  • Operating Systems
  • Integrated Software Stacks (Edge, AI, Infrastructure)
  • Firmware
  • Embedded and IoT Projects
  • Cloud System Software


Session Key:

Machine Learning / Analytics Linux Google Oses Firmware
Web Security Cloud Other
Optimizations Edge IOT / Embedded Core Linux
