OGF28 Call for Session Proposals
March 15-18, 2010
Munich, Germany

Grids have matured to production infrastructures in academic and commercial usage scenarios. In addition, Cloud computing is evolving as a promising new paradigm for infrastructure provisioning. For academics, such distributed computing and service infrastructures are considered key enablers for the future of eScience. Commercial application of such technologies leads to challenges and consideration similar to those in eScience.

OGF28 will provide a forum to foster new relationships and collaborations based on common interests, and develop best practices and technical specifications related to Distributed Computing Infrastructures (DCI). If you are interested in the future of distributed computing, OGF28 is the place to be in March 2010.

The OGF28 Program Committee seeks active participation by key projects in DCI, worldwide. In addition to OGF's chartered groups and Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions, the Program Committee is soliciting proposals for content that support the OGF mission of accelerating distributed computing adoption in both research and industry. While the Program Committee will consider all proposed content related to grid and cloud technology and usage, they are particularly seeking content related to the following topics:

Strategic Session
  • Linking data-intensive, large-scale projects in DCI
  • European Strategic Outlook on the Future of DCI (e.g. key EU Projects in ICT)
Technical topics:
  • Future of Clouds, Grids and Clouds, Clouds and HPC
  • Data Management, Access and Repositories for Distributed Computing
  • Security in Grids, Clouds
  • Production Grid Interoperability
  • Software Sustainability for DCI
  • Green IT, Energy Efficiency
Additionally, OGF and OGF-Europe are accepting proposals for multiple half-day or full-day tutorials with a hands-on focus and designed to enhance technology skills.

The deadline to submit session proposals for the joint program is: 4 January 2010, notification will be provided by 15 January 2010.
