September 15-19, 2008
After several successful events in the US and Europe, OGF returns to Asia-Pacific in beautiful Singapore for OGF24, co-located with the GridAsia 2008 event, and hosted by Singapore Grid Forum. OGF24 will offer a unique opportunity for distributed computing experts, builders, and users to meet with OGF’s global community to discuss emerging trends, success stories of grid deployments, and standards. In addition to high-profile keynote speakers, participants can expect a wide variety of program content ranging from hot technologies like cloud and virtualization as well as practical uses of grids in scientific and industrial settings. A small commercial exhibition will also be an important part of this multi-faceted event. Participants will learn about products and services and see demonstrations of successful projects that have leveraged OGF technologies and standards. See our sponsor prospectus for more information on sponsorship and exhibition opportunities.
Registration and the Call for Participation soliciting presentations, workshops, and other program content will open on June 1. Hotel accommodations must be reserved early due to other high-profile events in Singapore just after the conference, so plan to secure your housing as soon as possible.
OGF24 will show how grids have become a key enabling technology in a broad spectrum of IT environments. Participants will hear how researchers and scientists in both academic and commercial settings find grids useful to scale their compute capabilities and data analysis while enhancing their ability to collaborate across organizational boundaries. Participants will also hear how commercial users find grids to enable better business agility, reduce costs, and aid in the deployment of a shared, service-oriented infrastructure. OGF24 will also provide a unique forum for discussion on how grids form a necessary underpinning for emerging technologies such as virtualization and clouds.
Participants will have a number of different session types to choose from including:
- Workshops exploring distributed computing usage in scientific disciplines and commercial sectors
- OGF Specification Adoption sessions demonstrating the impact of OGF’s published specifications and best practices
- Case studies of business uses of grids
- Best practice development sessions where key challenges are discussed and solutions identified
- Chartered group sessions where OGF standards, best practices, and other community work is discussed
- Keynotes and other invited talks.
