2020 OFA Workshop Registration


Due to the evolving situation with the Coronavirus, the OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) has decided to postpone the upcoming OFA Workshop 2020 that was to take place March 17-19, 2020 in Columbus, OH.

The OFA is actively exploring the possibility of rescheduling the event for later this year so that fabric developers and users can still have the opportunity to discuss emerging fabric technologies, collaborate on future industry requirements, and to address problems that exist today.

We are offering each attendee the option to leave your registration on account with the OFA to be applied toward the rescheduled Workshop, or of a full refund.  Please let us know which you prefer by sending an email to  We’ll issue a refund to those from whom we haven’t heard by Tuesday, March 31, 2020.  If you leave your registration on account, a full refund will still be available if the rescheduled Workshop dates, when they are announced, don’t work for you.

The current OFA Workshop agenda is subject to change.  As the picture clarifies we will be communicating more details related to a possible rescheduling.

Regarding lodging at the Blackwell Inn, please contact the hotel directly to cancel your room reservation.
