    Open Systems: What’s Old Is New Again

    Join us for a special (Free) May Rose City SPIN in collaboration with the SATURN Software Architecture Conference!

    Open Systems: What’s Old Is New Again

    Presented by Patricia Oberndorf, Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute

    Dates/Times: Monday, May 5th, 2014: Networking and Talk: 7:00-9:00 PM

    Location: Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, 1401 SW Naito Parkway

    Abstract

    Organization executives and managers continue to be challenged to achieve greater acquisition efficiency and cost savings, while understanding a myriad of issues and promoting smart system decision making. The use of an open systems approach is coming back to help with today’s realities and tomorrow’s possibilities. To adapt to changing circumstances, executives and managers need practical definitions, the basics of an open systems approach, and an understanding of the issues, as well as things to look for in programs as they transition to an open systems approach.

    This presentation will discuss the definitions, approach, and basics of open systems. It will relate the concepts to current technology trends and the implications of disruptive technologies and provide attendees with high-level understanding and appreciation of what it means to transition to an open systems approach for system acquisition.

    3rd USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Computing (HotCloud '11)
    through
    Portland Marriott (Downtown)

    Join us in Portland, OR, June 14–15, 2011, for the 3rd USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Cloud Computing. HotCloud brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry working on cloud computing technologies. Cloud computing has evolved over the years from a basic IT infrastructure (data centers) to platform as a service (PaaS), and it includes both software as a service (SaaS) and enabling services to be deployed on a hosted infrastructure (IaaS). We believe that cloud computing will benefit from close interaction between researchers and industry practitioners, so that the research can inform current deployments and deployment challenges can inform new research. In support of this, HotCloud will provide a forum for both academics and practitioners to share their experience, leverage each other's perspectives, and identify new/emerging "hot" trends in this important area.

  • 3rd Workshop on I/O Virtualization (WIOV '11)

    Join us in Portland, OR, on June 14, 2011, for the 3rd Workshop on I/O Virtualization. Virtualization technology has grown beyond server systems to include desktops, notebooks, and even mobile devices. The rich settings in which virtualized systems are used range from cloud computing infrastructures requiring access to high-end I/O devices like GPUs and networks to the many devices present in embedded and mobile systems. While I/O systems have a long history of using abstraction to shield applications from the intricacies of devices and storage systems, the WIOV '11 workshop's focus is on the interplay of I/O with virtualization and cloud technologies. Our goal is to provide a forum to discuss the impact and challenges of I/O virtualization along multiple dimensions.

  • 3rd USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Storage and File Systems (HotStorage '11)

    Join us in Portland, OR, on June 14, 2011, for the 3rd USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Storage and File Systems. Storage systems continue to present important research challenges and opportunities today. The rapid increase in the volume and variety of digital data, the trend toward using commodity components rather than custom-built hardware, the ability to insert new filesystem functionality transparently in hypervisors, the emergence of persistent storage memory technologies, the challenges of "big data," the rise of distributed key-value stores (such as nosql), aand the proliferation of storage devices in consumer electronics all offer exciting opportunities and new challenges. The HotStorage workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in presenting their thoughts and engaging in discussions with their colleagues.

    Linux Plumbers Conf 2009
    through
    Portland Marriott (Downtown)

    The Linux Plumbers Conference is primarily a developers conference - with the goal of getting key developers together to discuss issues face to face. For a description of our goals, see this post on What is Linux Plumbing?. Thus the conference program mostly consists of microconferences addressing a particular topic or subsystem issue. Microconferences are sessions of approximately two and a half hours with several individuals giving brief presentations or demos and driving discussion. Microconferences will be run by a “runner” who selects speakers and moderates the discussion. Note that the microconference format does not preclude individual speakers giving more traditional, longer formal presentations on topics of interest.

    Entrepreneurship in the Global Economy

    In the New Global Economy, value creation has the same value independent of where the value is created. As a result you can tap into talent globally for motivation, leadership, and entrepreneurship and make many more ideas viable than were possible in the past. Fifteen years ago most companies were local and competition was around the corner. Technology and connectivity have now created a free market in the context of the world. For example, an entrepreneur in Portland can now both collaborate and compete with entrepreneurs in Shanghai or Bangalore.

    Desh is the founding investor and Chairman of several companies including Sycamore Networks, Tejas Networks, Airvana, A123 Systems, HiveFire and Sandstone Capital. Desh is also involved in several non-profit initiatives which leverage the Global connection. For example the “Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation” at MIT has announced an International Initiative. Akshaya Patra, an NGO in India that serves mid-day meals to underprivileged children, has scaled its operations to serve 1 million meals a day with in the last six years using global talent and resources. He will use the initiatives that he is involved with as examples to discuss the new Global Economy.

    This event is being presented in conjunction with Venture Northwest hosted by OEN (Oregon Entrepreneurs Network).

    Register for Venture Northwest (includes keynote by Desh Deshpande) - Register on or before October 3rd at the early bird special $420.
