Navigating the way to a portable, interoperable, secure Cloud will be
the focus of the International Cloud Symposium (ICS) 2013, the third in
a series of annual events hosted by the nonprofit OASIS open standards
consortium. ICS is an interactive conference for ICT professionals
responsible for developing, influencing and managing Cloud computing
policies in the public and private sectors. This year's ICS will be held
in Luxembourg on 15 October as part of the EuroCloud Congress. The event
will feature the first public interoperability demonstration of the
OASIS Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications
(TOSCA), a standard that enhances the portability of cloud applications
and services in a vendor-neutral ecosystem. https://www.oasis-open.org/events/cloud/2013
ICS key topics include:
"We are pleased to have OASIS as one of the leading global
standardization bodies joining the EuroCloud Congress. Their
International Cloud Symposium as a co-event will be a real enrichment
for our EuroCloud Members, all Congress participants and the entire
cloud industry," said Bernd Becker, President EuroCloud Europe. "The
OASIS's work on cloud standards is key for the provision of reliable
cloud services and a prerequisite for a broad marke acceptance. It also
fits perfectly with the global EU Cloud strategy, where the
identification of relevant cloud standards is also an important task."
In addition to the TOSCA demonstration, ICS will feature presentations
on open standardization initiatives including Privacy
by Design, Privacy Management and Reference Model (PMRM), and IDCloud.
ICS is sponsored by IBM and Microsoft.
ICS Speakers include:
ICS will be held concurrent with the first day of the EuroCloud
Congress. Delegates may attend the full ICS program followed by a
second day at EuroCloud or customize a schedule of ICS and EuroCloud
sessions that match their interests. Registration is open to all. Press
passes are available; contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
ICS will conclude with OASIS20, a reception celebrating two decades of
advancing open standards at OASIS. The reception will be followed by the
annual EuroCloud Evening Gala. OASIS20 will be sponsored by IBM, ISIS
Papyrus, Microsoft, and Primeton.
