OGF24: Open Grid Forum (Singapore)

The 24th Open Grid Forum - OGF24

The Matrix building at Biopolis
September 15-19, 2008


After several successful events in the US and Europe, OGF returns to Asia-Pacific in beautiful Singapore for OGF24, co-located with the GridAsia 2008 event, and hosted by Singapore Grid Forum. OGF24 will offer a unique opportunity for distributed computing experts, builders, and users to meet with OGF’s global community to discuss emerging trends, success stories of grid deployments, and standards. In addition to high-profile keynote speakers, participants can expect a wide variety of program content ranging from hot technologies like cloud and virtualization as well as practical uses of grids in scientific and industrial settings. A small commercial exhibition will also be an important part of this multi-faceted event. Participants will learn about products and services and see demonstrations of successful projects that have leveraged OGF technologies and standards.

OGF24 will show how grids have become a key enabling technology in a broad spectrum of IT environments. Participants will hear how researchers and scientists in both academic and commercial settings find grids useful to scale their compute capabilities and data analysis while enhancing their ability to collaborate across organizational boundaries. Participants will also hear how commercial users find grids to enable better business agility, reduce costs, and aid in the deployment of a shared, service-oriented infrastructure. OGF24 will also provide a unique forum for discussion on how grids form a necessary underpinning for emerging technologies such as virtualization and clouds.

Participants will have a number of different session types to choose from including:

Workshops exploring distributed computing usage in scientific disciplines and commercial sectors

OGF Specification Adoption sessions demonstrating the impact of OGF’s published specifications and best practices

Case studies of business uses of grids

Best practice development sessions where key challenges are discussed and solutions identified
Chartered group sessions where OGF standards, best practices, and other community work is discussed

Keynotes and other invited talks.
