Why Symposium?

  • Current R&D models are largely point-to-point
  • OCP exists on the principles of Open Source – The OCP Future Technologies Symposium offers an opportunity to expand that model to R&D
    • We believe OCP Symposium can serve as a forum for OCP members to collaborate on the hardest areas of opportunities / risk facing the industry, and bring those to a consortium of technology-focused Academic and Startup members to work on
    • OCP pools their research efforts, Symposium pools their R&D capabilities
  • Exposure to major players in the IT industry – direct access to the hardest problems facing multiple levels of scale
    • Includes users, developers, manufacturers, and hyperscale companies
  • Forum for your ideas and research – OCP is already an established community
