Friends of the MOC Alliance,
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the MOC Alliance Workshop will now be held March 20 - March 22, 2023. You can find updated information, event details, and registration information here. This page will be updated with new details as we get closer to the event, so make sure to check back for new announcements!
The MOC Alliance provides a structure for a set of interrelated projects that have grown up around the MOC and MGHPCC. These projects include production cloud services (NERC, NESE, OSN) for domain researchers that are operated and facilitated by university research IT, a national testbed for cloud research (OCT), projects to enable scientific and medical researchers (Biogrids, ChRiS), projects to engage the open source (OI labs, Operate First) and system research (Red Hat Collaboratory, i-Scale) communities.
The workshop will bring together our unique community of Research IT, researchers, users, and industry to celebrate what has been accomplished and help define the MOC Alliance strategy moving forward. In addition, it will showcase how the Alliance is so much more than the sum of its parts. Sessions will cover research that was motivated by experience with a real cloud, the impact research has already had on upstream open source projects, and how some of these projects are starting to impact services that are part of the Alliance.
We look forward to connecting with you in March!
