Call For Submissions

The RTE Summit is the event for and by Solution and Release Train Engineers, which is why we are looking for your input! To inspire a continuous learning culture, we'd love to hear about learnings and stories from the field – your stories. Whether these are case studies from your organisation, or capture industry-wide trends about agility or the role of the RTE is all up to you.

Topic submissions close at the end of May. Don't miss out on the opportunity to share your valuable insights with the wider RTE community!

Theme: Back to the Future!

This year's "Back to the Future" theme was chosen with the aim of looking back on previous years and returning to the real heart and soul of both RTEs and the Summit as a whole. At the same time, we aim to look ahead towards the future. For the next evolution of the RTE, which goes beyond frameworks, we should continuously challenge ourselves to look beyond the horizon.

As the RTE role becomes more focused on Flow, Coaching, and Leadership, we aim to propel ourselves forwards and lead the way towards high-performance ARTs. The Summit will allow this to happen by providing opportunities to learn, share, and network with fellow RTEs. And obviously guided by ‘Rule Number 6’, we also aim to have a lot of fun & laughter along the way.
