OSS2005 Call For Participation

************************************************** ************

OSS 2005
The First International Conference on Open Source Systems

July 11 - 15, 2005 Genova, Italy

************************************************** ************

Open Source Software (OSS) development has emerged in the last decades
as one of the most important phenomenon of
computer science and engineering. It has been instrumental for
education and research in the Academia, providing free
access to essential tools, such as compilers, word processors,
spreadsheets, etc, it has changed the way people perceive
the software business, and it has often kept the software market away
from monopolies. As such, a deep understanding of
OSS requires the understanding of a wide spectrum of issues.

The goal of OSS2005 is be a holistic forum on OSS where to convey
people interested in OSS and coming from a widely
diverse background.

Therefore, OSS2005 will be a forum to discuss theories, practices,
experiences, and tools on development and applications
of OSS systems, with specific focus on two aspects:
(a) the development of open source systems and the
underlying technical, social, and economics issue
(b) the adoption of OSS solutions and the implications of such
adoption both in the public and in the private sector.

OSS2005 will bring together people from industry, public
administration, and academia to share experiences and ideas and to
provide an archival source for important papers on open source topics.
The conference is also meant to provide information and education to
practitioners, identify directions for further
research, and to be an ongoing platform for technology transfer.

The conference will consist of a dynamic mixture of keynote
presentations, technical presentations, panels, poster sessions,
workshops, tutorials, Ph.D. and an Open Educational Symposium.

A rich companions' program has also been prepared.

The conference will stress practical applications and implications of
OSS. Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

- Foundations and rationale of Open Source Software
- Licensing issues in OSS
- Tools and infrastructures for OSS Development
- Open Source Software and eGovernment
- Open Source and Open Knowledge
- Knowlegde management in OSS
- Business models and OSS
- Impact of OSS on social networks
- Documentation of OSS
- Cost and economic models of OSS
- OSS and Agile Methodologies
- Scalability issues
- Education and training
- Introduction of OSS in companies and Public Administrations
- Empirical analysis of OSS
- Case studies and experiments
