OW2 in the conferences
With Cédric Thomas, OW2 CEO, being VP International of the event, OW2 will help organize four sessions:
European Collaborative innovation: showcasing multinational EU-funded innovative open source projects.
This session will provide an update on R&D in European ICT open source projects and will focus on the State-of-the-Art, latest developments, new technical areas, identified needs and technical limitations faced by industry, included in current projects or in upcoming calls from the European Commission. The collaborative working methods, synergies with other projects, involvment in standardization bodies, best practices, and the actions to disseminate the results of projects can also be addressed during those presentations.
Local Government and Open Source: a meet-up or cities and local government using or willing to use open source software in their information systems.
Local Government and Open Source: a meet-up for cities and local government using or willing to use open source software in their information systems. This session aims at sharing experiences and best practices in OSS usage in European cities. Selecting OSS, implementing OSS and learning OSS... How to contribute to open source software and why joining an open source community?

2015 China Cloud Computing Conference (CCCC)
June 3-5, Beijing, China
Cédric Thomas, OW2 CEO, will give a presentation in the colocated event "Cloud Computing International Standardization Forum", on June 2 from 1:30 to 3:30.
Title: OW2 and OCCI in the open cloud industry ecosystem
Abstract: This short lecture will highlight growing challenges faced by cloud computing users and how an emerging standard such as OCCI, can be part of the solution. Since the launch of Amazon EC2 in august 2006, cloud computing has boomed and been adopted as the dominant model for delivering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as as Service and, more generally Everything as a Service (XaaS). Provisioning, managing and monitoring these outsourced, used-on-demand, paid-per-use and elastic resources require programmable interfaces for the cloud. A wide variety of different interfaces are available and this diversity energized the cloud computing market. However, behind the hype, cloud computing users are still confronted to major barriers: heterogeneity of cloud computing offerings, interoperability between cloud interfaces, integration to build multi-cloud systems and the portability of applications and cloud computing users activities. These issues have been addressed through libraries, brokering platforms and standards. We highlight the importance of Open Cloud Computing Interface (OCCI), a recommendation from Open Grid Forum (OGF). OCCI is a simple, open, extensible and self-described interface for managing every kind of resource as a service, not only IaaS. Although OCCI is supported by a large community it still lacks formal specification and associated engineering tools, fortunately an open source collaborative project such as OCCIware is addressing this limitation and everybody can join in.
