Many of us are immersed in SC10 this week, but there are other events going on. The UP 2010 cloud computing conference is presented by the same folks who offered the Cloudslam Initiative. Their goal is to promote collaborative analysis of the latest trends and challenges in cloud computing and ICT, looking at core process and strategies in this rapidly shifting world. The conference includes panels, workshops, and tutorials that cover a range of the topics, including cloud for business and the public sector, technology and innovation, industry and government insights, and research.
UP 2010 is a hybrid conference integrating the advantages of a physical conference with those of a virtual one, November 15-19. Day 1 is in San Francisco and day 4 is in Islandia, N.Y., 50 miles east of New York City. Details, keynote speakers and agenda at the UP conference site.
