CiliumCon Europe 2023 Schedule

Hi Cilium Community 👋

We are excited about the first ever CiliumCon on April 18 in Amsterdam, hosted by the CNCF and co-located with KubeCon. The bad news, the on-site registrations are already sold out. The good news, the content will be spectacular, it will be streamed live, and all sessions will be recorded so you can still participate and be part of this amazing milestone together with us.


The line-up is absolutely incredible with end-users from Sky, New York Times, Bloomberg LP, Datadog, and Robinhood Markets. What made them successful? How are they using Cilium? How has Cilium improved their infrastructure? It looks like we will even solve a murder mystery together.

How To Attend?

If you have a KubeCon pass which includes the co-located events you are already registered and can attend. CiliumCon will be hosted by the CNCF alongside several other prominent co-located conferences.

If you don’t have a KubeCon pass with the co-located events option, the option has unfortunately already sold out. Fortunately, the event will be streamed live and all sessions will be recorded so you can still participate. We have already taken notes to expand the event for the next KubeCon.

In addition, the Cilium project will have a booth at KubeCon and a fantastic project update as part of the KubeCon main track as in previous years. You will of course also find the Isovalent booth in the exhibition area with many of the Cilium maintainers present. Swing by and grab your favorite color of Cilium shirt.

If you can’t attend CiliumCon or want to dive into deeper discussion with the contributors and maintainers of the project, be sure to stop by the Cilium project meeting in the afternoon  from 15:30 – 17:30
