The Summit presents a unique platform for our Community from around the globe to share their insights, foster partnerships and showcase cutting-edge advancements in open hardware and software. 

  2022 Global Summit Recap  

The in-person event is held twice each year - in the Spring the OCP Regional Summit is held in Europe, with a specific focus on the challenges and solutions unique to that region of the globe; while the OCP Global Summit is our largest, held in the Fall each year in San Jose, California.

At the 2023 Global Summit, industry leaders, researchers and pioneers from the open community will engage in dynamic dialogues, enlightening workshops, and interactive engineering sessions designed to expand our understanding of the progress that our Projects have made as well as the challenges and road ahead. Participants will explore emerging trends, tackle complex challenges and discover new opportunities to drive global innovation. Through this collaborative spirit, we aim to accelerate the development of efficient, scalable, and sustainable open compute solutions that power the future of technology.

The theme for the 2023 Summit is: Scaling Innovation Through Collaboration
