Cloud Forum Registration Waitlist

Registration for attending the 2024 Cloud Forum in person is full, but do not dispair. We have a waitlist. Every year some people have to cancel for a variety of circumstances and we offer their seats to the next person on the waitlist. NOTE: The regular eligibility rules and max seats/institution rules still apply. Please read below for information about the intended audience and eligibility requirements for in-person attendance.

A half-day portion of the Cloud Forum on Wednesday, May 1 is available for virtual attendance. The focus is research leveraging the cloud and supporting researchers working in the cloud. Review the Cloud Forum schedule for full session details and register to join us for all or part of that session.


The Cloud Forum is primarily a cloud strategy and leadership event. The target audience for the Cloud Forum spans from CIOs, to directors of infrastructure, and, of course, cloud enablement leadership and architects. We strongly encourage attendance by institutions early in their cloud journey.


There is no cost to attend the Cloud Forum. Registration includes all meals except where indicated on the schedule. Travel costs are the responsibility of attendees. Travel details can be found on the Forum travel page.

In-Person Registration Eligibility and Guidelines

In-person attendance is limited to staff, faculty, and with approval, students from institutions of higher education and academic research as well as guests invited by the organizing committee. This year’s in-person Cloud Forum venue will be limited to 100 participants. To accommodate as many institutions as possible, each institution may send no more than three (3) attendees. Please coordinate with your colleagues in your organization to ensure you do not exceed the maximum.

Once the registration limit is reached, we will shift to a waitlist. Waitlisted registrants will be notified in the order they registered as spaces open up, assuming their registration does not push their institution beyond its cap of three attendees.

Virtual Registration

The researcher presentations and panel discussion on the morning of Wednesday, May 1 of Cloud Forum 2024 will be streamed live for virtual audiences. We encourage everyone who cannot make attend in person to join us for this portion of the program. See the Cloud Forum schedule for full details.
