Call for speakers - Virtualize 2015

September 3rd 2015

We are interested in hearing from people, organizations, and service providers who are using virtualization technologies in innovative ways. Our focus is on virtualized graphics that extend the power of gaming and workstation graphics to PCs and client devices. We have tracks on education, media and entertainment, business and gaming, and future technologies. We are especially interested in hearing case studies, which can help attendees understand how to access virtualized processing power across their networks or in the cloud for scalable resources.

If you are interested, please contact:
