Every year, the leaders of the European cloud industry gather together at the EuroCloud Congress. This unique two-day event is fully dedicated to the European cloud computing sector. It is the place to meet with business leaders, policy makers and researchers engaged in cloud computing and applications from across Europe. It will examine the role that political, industrial and economic policy can play in cloud’s successful growth and global impact. I organized the EuroCloud Congress and Awards 2012, 2013 and 2014.
