The Second International Open Research Cloud Congress aims at continuing the open dialogue among representatives of the academic research community, major funding and national policy agencies, and industry from a dozen countries, about the need for international cooperation and collaboration between and among private and public clouds supporting scientific research and a frank exploration of the pathways towards meeting those needs.
The Open Research Cloud is a collaboration of the international community supporting scientific research computing. Having recognized that a number of significant obstacles continue to interfere in the ability of globally dispersed researchers to effectively collaborate. If left unaddressed, we believe that such obstacles will have negative consequences for research and innovation.
The event will take place 27-29 September at Science Park, Amsterdam and is organised by the EGI Foundation.
