OCP Future Technologies Symposium

Call for Posters:

This year Open Compute Project Foundation (OCP) invites students and researchers from around the world to submit posters for the 2019 OCP Future Technologies Symposium, as a new addition to the global OCP Summit in San Jose, CA, USA. The theme for this year is ‘Open. Together.’ We are collaborating as a community on solutions to support future infrastructure and leverage open specification hardware ecosystems to solve tomorrow's challenges. We invite your ideas in leveraging open specification hardware ecosystems to solve tomorrow’s IT problems. With the addition of the Symposium, we are looking to bridge the gap between academic & individual research and this fast-paced industry. Learn more about the OCP Global Summit

Share your breakthrough ideas with industry leaders that illustrate efficiency, flexibility, and scale using open source principles for scalable computing. We welcome submissions in computer storage, networking, or any of the OCP project tracks; as well as those which are multi-disciplinary and cover leading technology solutions, such as edge computing.

Draft papers will be reviewed by the Track Chairs. Acceptance will be based on content, overall program balance and available space. The authors of the accepted drafts will have the opportunity to submit a poster and present their work during the OCP Global Summit in San Jose, CA on March 14 – 15, 2019. You will have the opportunity to pitch your work and your ideas to world class, industry-leading peers. Click here to see the OCP Symposium sessions at the OCP Global Summit.
