On days two and three of the event, summit participants will breakout for workgroups and collaborative project meetings to expand on topics presented during the keynotes and take a dive deep into others. Tracks include a legal track for Linux Foundation members, kernel topics, Linux tracing and tools, containers, community management best practices and meetings of Linux Foundation projects including AllSeen, OVA, OPNFV, SPDX and others.

Highlights of individual sessions include:

"Bringing people together to work towards a common goal is the core purpose of the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit," said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation. "When groups that normally don't get to meet face-to-face come together, it enables them to not only expand on existing topics and projects, but to brainstorm new and better ways of using open source. As the Linux Foundation community and Collaborative Projects have grown, events like this become even more essential to progressing our ideas and values."
