SUMMARY: NIST announces the Cloud Computing Forum & Workshop II to be 
held on November 4 and 5, 2010. This workshop will provide information 
on a Cloud Computing Roadmap Strategy as well as provide an updated 
status on NIST efforts to help develop open standards in 
interoperability, portability and security in cloud computing. The 
goals of this workshop are: Public announcement of the Cloud Computing 
Roadmap Strategy; engagement with interested parties on development of 
a neutral cloud computing reference architecture and taxonomy; defining 
target United States Government Cloud Computing Business Use Cases; and 
public announcement of access to the Standards Acceleration to 
Jumpstart the Adoption of Cloud Computing portal. Additional workshops 
will be announced in the Federal Register.

DATES: The Cloud Computing Forum & Workshop II will be held November 4 
and 5, 2010. Attendees must register by Thursday, October 28, 2010.

ADDRESSES: On the first day of the event, November 4, panel discussions 
will be held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, 100 
Bureau Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20899 in the Red Auditorium of the 
Administration Building, Building 101. The second day, November 5, will

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NIST plans to host several cloud computing 
workshops. The workshop schedules, registration information, and a list 
of frequently asked questions regarding these workshops are posted on 
the Internet at: http://www.nist.gov/itl/cloud/upcoming-events.cfm.
    On May 20, 2010, NIST hosted the first Cloud Computing Forum & 
Workshop. The purpose of that initial workshop was to respond to the 
request of the Federal Chief Information Officer to NIST to lead 
federal efforts on standards for data portability, cloud 
interoperability, and security. The workshop's goals were to initiate 
engagement with industry to accelerate the development of cloud 
standards for interoperability, portability, and security; introduce 
NIST Cloud Computing efforts; and discuss the Federal Government's 
experience with cloud computing.
    The purpose of the second Cloud Computing Forum & Workshop II, to 
be held on November 4 and 5, 2010, is to report on the status of these 
efforts and to socialize the NIST strategy to collaboratively develop a 
Cloud Computing Roadmap among multiple federal and industrial 
stakeholders, and to advance a dialogue between these groups. To frame 
the discussions, the United States Chief Information Officer and 
Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology will 
present their vision on the first day, November 4. Panel discussions 
will consider the roles of standard organizations and ad-hoc standards 
in the cloud; need and use of a reference architecture to support cloud 
adoption; key cloud computing issues and proposed solutions; security 
in the cloud; and international aspects of cloud computing. Breakout 
sessions on the following day, November 5, designed to actively engage 
stakeholders, will discuss these issues, and develop a series of next 
steps for the effort in cloud computing standards.
    All visitors to the NIST site are required to pre-register to be 
admitted and have appropriate government-issued photo ID to gain entry 
to NIST. Anyone wishing to attend this meeting must register at https://www-s.nist.gov/CRS/ by close of business Thursday, October 28, 2010, 
in order to attend.
