The first annual 2018 Open Compute Project (OCP) Regional Summit will be held October 1 – 2 at the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands. The OCP Regional Summit will bring together key decision makers, executives, engineers, developers and suppliers in developing regions where OCP is experiencing significant demand and adoption.

We will be specifically targeting the European, African and Middle East regions. Much like the adoption research we engaged IHS Markit to conduct on our behalf in preparation for the US Summit, we have asked them to explore energy consumption issues, and potential savings by using OCP. They will be presenting their findings.
We currently have plans for talks from the following organizations: London Internet Exchange (LINX), Romonet, Booking.com, Nerim, The Linux Foundation, KAO Data, Yahoo! Japan, ING Bank, KPN, and many more!
There will be the following tracks, in addition to keynotes: Networking, Rack & Power, Server/Storage, Telco, Datacenter Facility (including Modular Data Center), Open System Firmware, High Performance Computing, Advanced Cooling Solutions, Hardware Managementand Security
The latest project announced at the US Summit was the creation of the Open Systems Firmware project. This project is being led by Devender Goud from Microsoft and Ron Minnich from Google. They will be hosting a full day engineering workshop. The workshop will cover the work that is underway to open source platform initialization code, optimized for web-scale cloud firmware, with options build around UEFI and LinuxBoot. Facebook will also discuss scaling their business by using Linux experts to code firmware.
