Sun to Sponsor Open Source Grid and Cluster Conference, May 12-16

Sun Microsystems welcomes you to the Open Source Grid & Cluster Conference 2008. This all-new conference will take place on 12-16, 2008 at the Marriott City Center in Oakland, California.
At the 2008 Open Source Grid & Cluster Conference, current and potential users, administrators, and developers of open source grid and cluster software in research and industry can:
* Learn the latest best practices for using, managing and building grids and clusters
* Hear the experiences of real users in a wide range of commercial, research, educational, and biomedical environments.
* Meet the developers responsible for leading open source grid and cluster software.
* Interact with others facing and addressing challenges similar to your own.
Sponsored in part by Univa UD and Sun Microsystems, the program will include tracks dedicated to Globus (GlobusWorld), Grid Engine (Grid Engine Workshop), and Rocks (Rocks Cluster Workshop). Other sessions will cover related open source grid and cluster software, and present cross-cutting material focused on end-user applications and grid and cluster operations.
With a combination of in-depth tutorials, user experiences, technical architecture reviews, discussions of future directions, and much more, there will be something for everyone at this unique event.
We are also still accepting conference sponsors. Information about these opportunities is posted on our web site.
Call For Participation coming soon. We look forward to seeing you in Oakland!


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
