Call for papers: upcoming European open source eventsMatthew Aslett, June 15, 2009 @ 4:19 am ET
Two of the biggest open source events in Europe both announced their calls for papers today. Open World Forum 2009 will take place in Paris in October (preceded by the Open Source Think Tank) while Open Source Meets Business 2010 will take place in Nuremberg in January next year.
The theme for Open World Forum 2009 is “Free, Libre and Open Source Software: at the heart of the Digital Recovery”. The organizers are looking for suggestions for the forum, as well as participants for the 2020 FLOSS Roadmap. They are also looking for CIOs, NGOs, start-ups, politicians, and anyone with a radical new insight or viewpoint on economic, technological or social trends, to take part in related summits.
Heise.de’s Open Source Meets Business, meanwhile, is focused on business best practices, technology solutions and future technology. The organisers are looking for case studies of companies and organisations which utilize open source, IT professionals from user companies, and representatives of open source projects – maintainers, committers or companies.
