The global COVID-19 pandemic has created various challenges in the industry and has impacted conferences and face-to-face events in 2020. Due to these dynamic circumstances, event organizers have transitioned to providing virtual experiences and creative online events.
The Gen-Z Consortium™ is excited to be participating in three virtual events this fall — DCD San Francisco, Flash Memory Summit, and SC20. Along with speaking engagements and panel participation, we will be showcasing several Gen-Z technology demos from member companies in our virtual booths.
DCD San Francisco, taking place Oct. 14-16, is known as “the virtual conference for the hyperscale data center ecosystem.” Gen-Z Consortium President Kurtis Bowman and MWG Co-chair Tim Symons will participate in a “fireside chat” on Oct. 16 from noon-1:00 pm and discuss how Gen-Z’s disaggregation solution addresses processing and power management challenges for AI, 5G & Edge Computing. Registration for the conference is free, so we hope you will attend this lively discussion.
Flash Memory Summit, has moved to Nov. 10-12 this year, and will include online presentations along with a virtual exhibit hall featuring landing pages that will serve as digital exhibitor “booths.” The Gen-Z Consortium is excited to support the event as a Bronze Sponsor this year as well as providing a presentation session, “Gen-Z: An Ultra-High Speed Interface for System-to-System Communications,” by Kurtis Bowman, taking place on Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 2:15 p.m. PT. Gen-Z will also be participating in a panel discussion with CXL Consortium members titled “Where the New High-Speed Interfaces Fit and How They Work Together” on Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 4:25-4:55 pm PT. Visit the Flash Memory Summit website for additional details and to register.
SC20 will take place Nov. 16-19, one week after FMS. The Gen-Z Consortium will have a virtual booth at this year’s conference, and will also be participating in a panel discussion with the CXL Consortium. The panel — titled “Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) and Gen-Z Protocols: Bridging the Resource Gap Between CPU, Memory, and Accelerators” — will take place Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 1:00 pm ET. For additional information and registration, visit the SC20 website.
Although a virtual event doesn’t offer quite the same experience as an in-person show, we are excited to have a place to share several Gen-Z technology demos in action and continue to support the ecosystem. These videos from our member companies showcase Gen-Z’s continued progress and include Gen-Z connectivity, development tools, testing platforms, and more.
We hope you will join us online for these upcoming virtual events. “See” you there!
