OpenStack Design Summit Program Committee

As part of the planning process for the April 26-29, 2011 Design Summit in Santa Clara, CA, I am announcing the creation of a a Design Summit Program Committee. This Committee is open to any community member interested in working on the agenda for the event and will be announced on January 4th, 2011 via the Event Wiki page at

The Program Committee will have the following responsibilities:

  • Participation in the high level agenda organization
  • Participation in the creation of the event agenda
  • Speaker recruitment and assignment based on agenda
  • Event speaker introductions (if able to attend the event)

The agenda development process will be done in the open via an Etherpad at Having an open agenda creation process ensures that everyone’s voice is heard and given a chance to contribute to this important meeting. Please feel free to review this plan at any time and also contribute, even non-Program Committee members are encouraged to submit ideas and provide feedback.

The Program Committee contains the following members (all volunteers):

  • Stephen Spector, Community Manager
  • Thierry Carrez, Release Manager
  • Architecture Committee Member

As you can see, we have at least 3 OPEN SLOTS I plan to fill but am willing to have a larger Program Committee based on volunteers. If you are interested in participating on this Committee please email [email protected] as I plan to launch this Committee on January 4th to the community.
