The agenda, logistics and registration are here.

We invite you to register now for the OAGi/NIST Workshop on Open Cloud Architectures for Smart Manufacturing May 5, 2015 - Gaithersburg, MD


We believe there is a need for service vendors, cloud vendors, and manufacturers to work collaboratively to develop products that are more integratable, more interoperable, and, more composable than they are now.

OAGi and NIST are holding a workshop to get these three groups together. The goal is to get them talking about best approaches, from their individual perspectives, to address these three goals.

To provide a forum for this exchange, we will be asking participants to answer a number of important questions that help identify business needs, technical gaps, integration technologies, and interface standards. We will also provide opportunities for service and cloud providers to demonstrate their current and future plans for products. Manufacturers can see these products and provide valuable feedback.

We invite you to read more and register for this meeting here.
