International Scholarly Infrastructure Technical Summit (SITS)

November 4th

Fee: Free – Space is limited

Stanford Campus

Scholarly Infrastructure Technical Summits (SITS) are face-to-face meetings of technical experts (developers) with the purpose to discuss operational techniques for implementing reusable infrastructure components.
Members of the DLF Developer Community are encouraged to attend, as this is an opportunity to discuss current activities with an international group of colleagues. SITS meetings are specifically for lead developers, chief technical officers and head system administrators who are currently working on large scale scholarly systems that are reused by multiple partners.  These meeting are intended to be reflective on technical operations currently taking place in these major infrastructure systems.  Topics addressed will primarily be operational technical experience with new system components, e.g. use of a new apache project or testing of a new messaging systems architecture, etc.
