The RG Cloud Working Group meets bi-weekly via teleconference. Representatives of the member organizations also meet face-to-face at conferences and workshops sponsored or organized by the Research Group. A regular annual meeting is normally organized co-located with the ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance Engineering (ICPE).

For more information on how to join the meetings please see the How to Join the RG Cloud Working Group section.
