BPF microconference accepted into 2019 Linux Plumbers Conference

We are pleased to announce that the BPF microconference has been accepted into the 2019 Linux Plumbers Conference! Last year’s BPF microconference was such a success that it will be held again this year.

BPF along with its just-in-time (JIT) compiler inside the Linux kernel allows for versatile programmability of the kernel and plays a major role in networking (XDP, tc BPF, etc.), tracing (kprobes, uprobes, tracepoints) and security (seccomp, landlock) subsystems.

Since last year’s Plumbers Conference, many of the discussed improvements have been tackled and found their way into the Linux kernel such as significant steps towards allowing for a compile-once paradigm with the help of BTF and global data support as well as considerable verifier scalability improvements to name a few. The topics proposed for this year’s event include:

– libbpf, loader unification
– Standardized BPF ELF format
– Multi-object semantics and linker-style logic for BPF loaders
– Verifier scalability work towards 1 million instructions
– Sleepable BPF programs
– BPF loop support
– Indirect calls in BPF
– Unprivileged BPF
– BPF type format (BTF)
– BPF timers
– bpftool
– LLVM BPF backend, JITs and BPF offloading
– and more

Come join us and participate in the decision making of one of the most cutting edge advancements in the Linux kernel!

See here for a detailed preview of the proposed and accepted topics. For Linux Plumbers 2019, new topics for microconferences can be submitted
via the Call for Proposals (CfP) interface. Please visit the CfP page for more information.

We hope to see you there!
