ORCI Workshop 2022

PLEASE NOTE: THE OPEN RESEARCH CLOUD INITIATIVE WORKSHOP HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO MARCH 7-9, 2022 DUE TO FALL 2021 TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS AND COVID CONCERNS.

The Open Research Cloud Initiative Workshop will be held on March 7-9, 2022 (rescheduled from November 1-3, 2021) at Boston University, Northeastern University, and virtually. Formerly the MOC and Open Cloud Workshop, the new name reflects the creation of the ORCI, a structure to organize, accelerate and support the interrelated projects we announced in the last workshop. 

This year’s workshop includes an invitation-only program to explore the feasibility of establishing The Center for Systems Innovation at Scale (i-Scale), a phase 1 National Science Foundation Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (IUCRC).  If launched, i-Scale would become a Center focused on driving research in directions highly relevant to the ORCI, and create additional opportunities for industry engagement.

Program Schedule

We will be adding a schedule as the program evolves – stay tuned!

Who Should Attend?

The main ORCI Workshop, which will be held March 7, with tutorials on the morning of March 8,  is open to the public.  If you are affiliated with any of the current partner projects, this workshop is for you.  If you work with a company or organization interested in these efforts and opportunities to partner, join us.  If you are a student, faculty, or staff at an affiliated or area university and looking to learn more, we hope to see you there.
