The National Defense University is holding a Cloud Computing Symposium on July 15 in Washington.  (See the message below.) The speakers include Vivek Kundra (Federal CIO) and other Federal IT executives.To take advantage of this opportunity, I have had the OMG shift the date of the Cloud Standards Summit from July 15 to Monday, July 13.  We are going to try to schedule a slot at the NDU Symposium to report on the outcome of the Cloud Standards Summit. Since the theme of the  Standards Summit is ""Coordinating Activities to Remove Government Cloud Computing Roadblocks", I believe that the report will be of strong interest to the Symposium audience. Let me know if the date change poses any problems. Thanks.
