Each year, the SNIA holds a Winter Symposium in San Jose, California, which is a face-to-face meeting of all of the SNIA technical working groups, including the Cloud Storage Technical Working Group that works on the standardization of CDMI.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn more if you're interested in CDMI, would like to learn more about the CDMI standardization process, or would like to get involved. This meeting is open to all participants, but non-SNIA members may participate in only one meeting yearly for purposes of evaluating SNIA membership.
If you're interested in attending, please register online at: http://snia.org/events/wintersymp2013/reg
