The OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA) has published a Call for Sessions for its 14th annual OFA Workshop, taking place April 9-13, 2018, in Boulder, CO. The OFA Workshop is a premier means of fostering collaboration among those who develop fabrics, deploy fabrics and create applications that rely on fabrics. It is the only event of its kind where fabric developers and users can discuss emerging fabric technologies, collaborate on future industry requirements, and address problems that exist today. In support of advancing open networking communities, the OFA is proud to announce that Promoter Member Los Alamos National Laboratory, a strong supporter of collaborative development of fabric technologies, will underwrite a portion of the Workshop.
