Interested in winning an iPad mini? Be sure to stop by the OpenSFS booth (#4125), or one of our participant booths, to pick up the OpenSFS passport. The passport is a fun way to interact with OpenSFS participants by collecting stamps from 7 participating booths. Return the completed passport to the OpenSFS booth for a chance to win your iPad mini! (Lustre not included.)


Lastly, we encourage you to spread the word about the SC events planned for the Lustre community! More information is available on our web site. We have also prepared the attached social media/website content for your marketing teams to use in promoting SC’13.


We look forward to seeing you at SC’13 and encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities to join these events!
