Sponsorship Opportunities

LUG 2013 will be held in San Diego, California from Tuesday, April 16th2013 through April 18th2013 at the Omni San Diego Hotel. This three day event is the primary venue for discussion and seminars on open source parallel file system technologies with a unique focus on the Lustre parallel file system. LUG 2013 is an OpenSFS sponsored event whose program committee is made up of representatives from Indiana University (IU), Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), San Diego Supercomputing Center (SDSC), Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), and the Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives (CEA).

LUG is a great opportunity to get your brand highlighted in the LUG community.  In 2012 we had a broad representation of Academia, Government Laboratories, and International Representation.  We had 221 attendees and 70 organizations represented, we expect attendance to be even larger this year.

In the past, some sponsors have expressed interest in sponsoring meals in addition to their corporate sponsorship. This year, we are offering the opportunity for vendors to sponsor meals or snacks for attendees during the conference.  Sponsors will be recognized for their contribution with appropriate signage in the dining area and on tables.  Vendors can sponsor (or co-sponsor) at the following rates:

  • Breakfast – $9,000 – three available
  • Lunch  – $11,600 – three available
  • Dinner – $30,000 – one available
  • Meeting Break – $4,000 – five available

If meal sponsorship is something your organization would consider in addition to corporate sponsorship, please contact OpenSFS at the email below.
