Third International Open Research Cloud Congress
Hosted by: NECTAR and The OpenStack Foundation
Location: Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre – Sydney, Australia
We are looking forward to the Third International Open Research Cloud Congress and making further progress on the development of the ORCA Declaration. Our thanks to NECTAR and the OpenStack Foundation for sponsoring and hosting this meeting in Sydney.
We had an excellent meeting in Amsterdam and learned about the cloud interoperability initiatives underway in Europe, heard from some excellent use-cases that highlighted the need for collaboration across clouds and made progress towards understanding the technical challenges that need to understood and resolved.
- collecting new insights on the challenges facing research clouds — benefiting from the perspectives, insights, and experience of our Asian colleagues;
- validating the scope of coverage – through use-case presentations where increased interoperability and federation are a concern and hearing from our technical colleagues on the development side; and
- exploring solution pathways that would support interoperability and allow for the implementation of the Declaration objectives.
ORCA is looking for individuals to volunteer and to get involved in its Working Groups by committing time to some specific working groups where they feel their expertise will be well utilized.
