CernVM Users Workshop 2018


The next CernVM Users Workshop will take place at CERN from 30 January to 1 February 2018. As usual, the workshop aims to bring together users and developers to discuss the current status of the CernVM ecosystem and the future directions, with a fresh look onto the landscape of technology and the evolution in virtualization and cloud computing. This edition will also be the occasion to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the CernVM project. We are looking forward to a keynote address by Predrag Buncic, founder of the CernVM project and now ALICE computing coordinator. As in previous editions, we invited guest speakers from the industry on selected technology topics. This time, we are very happy to welcome:

  • Miklos Szeredi (Red Hat), the author of File System in Userspace (FUSE) and OverlayFS
  • Saeed Noursalehi (Microsoft), core developer of the Git Virtual File System (GVFS)
  • Michael Bauer (RStor), core developer of Singularity
  • Justin Cormack (Docker), core developer of LinuxKit
