Subject: RE: [tosca] TC Members: Speaking Opportunity (maybe more) at Open Networking Summit
I think you are now the 6th person who has stepped forward! This is clearly a tribute to the commitment and energy of our TC members. I will factor you in the with the other volunteers, working in conjunction with the Technical Marketing and Education Ad Hoc and the NFV Ad Hoc, of course. Since I doubt that the organizers will offer us that many speaker registrations, we will gratefully take advantage of your intent to be there anyway.
The high interest in this event also tells me that we should have a good number of folks who are interested in helping spread the word about TOSCA. I hope all such folks will strongly consider reaching out to Lowell and Jeremy, the TM&E Ad Hoc co-leaders! As you all know, that Ad Hoc will be meeting for the first time on the 16th of this month!
I was planning to attend this so I’ll be availbale for any TOSCA presentations.
I have been informed that OASIS has agreed to support the Open Networking Summit (1), to be held on March 14-17 in Santa Clara, CA. The organizers have specifically mentioned an interest in TOSCA presentation (and possibly some sort of table space – details forthcoming).
As you know, the TC has approved a large set of technical marketing slides (some with scripts) used at conferences such as the ETSI NFV sponsored conference and at OSCON last year that could serve as a foundation for such an opportunity.
If you are interested in (co-)presenting on TOSCA and likely the NFV Simple Profile given the nature of the conference, please respond directly to me and the CC’d persons on this email (Simon, NFV Simple Profile Ad Hoc Lead, and Technical Marketing and Education Ad Hoc Leads) indicating that you could attend. We need to know if we have interested persons available ASAP.
