OCP Future Technologies Symposium

The Open Compute Project (OCP) is a global community that reinvents hardware, shares designs of data center solutions and best practices among leading global organizations, including Facebook, Intel, Inspur, Nokia, Microsoft and Samsung, 

In January 2019, OCP approved a kickoff of the Future Technologies Symposium (‘Symposium’) to bring together members from Academia, Startup and the Investor communities

The Symposium is an OCP initiative that brings together people from academia, industry, startups, venture capital and analyst firms to solve together future problems facing the industry and accelerate productization through partnerships and open source R&D

Alongside OCP Global and Regional Summits, the Symposium is a dedicated full-day event that aims to identify the risks facing the IT industry, point at future opportunities and set up a space for new R&D collaborations.




As you know, the Coronavirus has affected many people throughout the world. The government travel restrictions, which took effect on February 2, 2020, were announced by Alex Azar, the secretary of health and human services. The administration’s action will restrict all foreign nationals who have been to China in the past 14 days from entering the United States. At this stage, the most stringent restrictions are being enforced by the US Government, restricting travel completely to the US.

We plan to conduct the entire OCP Global Summit on March 4 – 5, 2020 in San Jose, CA. We are making accommodations for our friends in China who are not able to make the trip as a result of the recent travel restrictions imposed. 

  • For those who registered, we have refunded the full amount of their registration fee without penalty
  • For speakers, we will offer the option to pre-record their presentation
  • Exhibitors will be sending their U.S.-based representatives

However, onsite during the event, we will be taking extra precautions, including providing antibacterial liquid dispensing machines, and making breathing masks available to attendees that ask for them. As an FYI, historically, 84% of attendees to our Global Summit were from the US, from 39 states. 16% of attendees were international representatives from 36 countries; less than 4% historically come from China.

Currently our registrations are running 10% to 15% ahead of last year at this time, so we are projecting attendance of approximately 4,000, our largest Summit yet.

Please contact registration@opencompute.org with any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you in San Jose!
