Open Source Networking User Groups

Open Source Networking User Groups (OSN User Groups) are locally managed groups that make up a key part of the open source networking ecosystem. Participation in a user group is open to anyone: employees of a member company, project contributors, upstream developers, and people just passionate about network transformation. See the OSN User Group network around the world:

User Groups meet 2-4 times a year to discuss practical applications and the latest innovations from the LF Networking projects: Anuket, EMCO,, ODIM, ONAP, OPNFV, OpenDaylight, TungstenFabric, and XGVela. User groups provide an opportunity to meet face-to-face with other open networking enthusiasts in the region, share ideas and insights, and work collaboratively to advance open source SDN, NFV, MANO, automation, cloud native, data analytics, edge, and the acceleration of underlying infrastructures.

OSN user group meetups cover a wide range of topics around the open networking stack and meetup organizers are always open to topic and speaker suggestions. The Linux Foundation uses to organize and communicate around OSN User Group Meetups. The map, list of all global OSN User Groups, and upcoming meetups can be found here: If you’d like to join a local user group and communicate with the organizer, you’ll first need an account on If no group existing in your region and you are interested in starting one and being an organizer, please contact us to discuss the process. Additional resources available to organizers on the OSN User Groups wiki page.

Note: OSN Days are an expanded version of OSN meetups (full day, LF speaker, sponsors, AV, catering, etc.). See the OSN Days website for more information.
