Kate Hendle

The Call for Papers for our 2022 OCP Global Summit is now open! The Summit will take place over three days from October 18-20, 2022. These three days will be packed with Keynotes, Exhibits, Expo Hall Talks, Experience Center, Special Focus Tracks, Adopter Use Cases  and Engineering Workshops that will not be your typical lecture presentations. The Engineering Workshops will be focused on technical deep dives to allow for interactive collaboration and intense discussions on current OCP Project activities and new products! Special tracks feature work from adjacent communities that are relevant to the OCP Community and Adopter Use Case presentations showcase successful deployments of OCP recognized equipment. This is your opportunity to shine and present your know-how and expertise that benefits our open Community.
