    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.
