GCDCS19: The Great Canadian Data Centre Symposium
June 19 @ 8:00 am - June 20 @ 5:00 pm
The Great Canadian Data Centre Symposium– jointly produced by InsightaaS and McMaster University’s Computing Infrastructure Research Group (CIRC) – launched in June 2018 with 18 sponsors, 35 expert speakers and 100 Canadian data centre professionals gathering to advance best practices in the Canadian Data Centre Community.
The tremendous enthusiasm of this group has led InsightaaS and CIRC to expand our activities. GCDCS19 will include:
- An Academic Congress (June 19th) at which post-graduate researchers from around the world will present on five key DC topics
- A Canadian Data Centre Excellence Awards initiative, culminating in a gala dinner (evening of June 19th) recognizing leading operators/management teams, suppliers and industry and academic visionaries, and a source guide designed to help connect buyers and sellers in 13 categories
- The GCDCS19 Symposium (June 20th), which will host 240 data centre leaders, and which will include an all-star plenary panel, five ‘main stage’ discussions, four breakout sessions and plentiful opportunities for networking
It's early, but GCDCS19 already has a substantial volume of commitments from speakers, sponsors and delegates. For more info, please visit www.gcdcs19.ca
