Clustering Workshop: Program and Schedule


We are pleased to announce a working group meeting for all clustering related topics on Linux, taking place as a part of and directly prior to the Linux Kongress 2001.

The purpose of this meeting is to form a permanent working group on an Open Clustering Framework, define its charter and outline the roadmap for future work.

An Open Clustering Framework is urgently needed to increase compatibility of projects, allow for applications to be portable across different implementations/installations and should ideally become part of the Linux Standards Base at some future date.

Please see the Call for Participation for details if you wish to attend and aren't yet registered. In essence, it amounts to sending a mail to the organizer and saying so; there is no additional charge for the workshop.
