Oproep: Submit your sessions for the 2019 OCP Regional Summit before May 24

The Call for Participation for our 2019 OCP Regional Summit closes on May 24! If you are using OCP solutions in your infrastructure, if your software is running on OCP gear or if you are building products based on open specifications, we want to hear about it! Share your experiences, your challenges, your unique approach to OCP. If you are looking to adopt OCP, if you are willing to explore OCP solutions in your company or if you are interested in becoming a solution provider for OCP products or facilities, this is the conference for you.

We are looking for these types of experiences and subject matter expertise to build our Summit schedule. Our Engineering Workshops run in parallel tracks during our event. Each track is related to our current projects, sub-projects or initiatives. To learn about our projects and respective sub-projects, please click here. Our workshop agendas are made up of OCP product presentations, new OCP tools or software, case studies or white papers utilizing OCP solutions, relevant initiatives and demos of OCP applications.

This is your opportunity to shine and present your know-how and expertise that benefits our open community (not a commercial for your organization).

The submission period ends on Friday, May 24 at 5pm PST.
