-The OGF Standard ​Areas are responsible ​for development of architectures,​ specifications,​ roadmaps and glossaries for distributed computing software through OGF working ​groups and through ​the application of the OGF document process. This also includes the management of technical liaisons with other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) and the promotion of the adoption of standardized and interoperable distributed computing software.+

 +===== Officers ===== 
 + 
 +The Open Grid Forum is led by the [[about:​steering_group|Grid Forum Steering Group]] (GFSG), consisting of the Area Directors for each of the areas listed below plus other organizational,​ operations and at-large members, which are [[about:​nomcom|nominated by the community]] according to a defined process and approved by the OGF [[about:​ogf_board|Board of Directors]]. The GFSG itself is led by the OGF [[about:​operations|President and Vice Presidents]],​ who are also approved and appointed by the OGF Board. 
 + 
 +The current GFSG officer team as approved by the OGF Board is as follows:  
 +  * President: Alan Sill, Texas Tech University (USA) 
 +  * Vice President of Standards: Jens Jensen, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (United Kingdom) 
 +  * Vice President of Community: Wolfgang Ziegler, Fraunhofer SCAI (Germany) 
 +  * Editor: Gregory Newby, Compute Canada (Canada) 
 +  * Area Directors as listed below

 +===== OGF Areas and Groups ===== 
 + 
 + 
 +The OGF Areas are organized ​for development of architectures,​ specifications,​ roadmaps and glossaries for distributed computing software through OGF community ​groups and working groups. These groups produce their respective output ​through application of the OGF document process. This work also includes the management of technical liaisons with other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) and the promotion of the adoption of standardized and interoperable distributed computing software.
