Detailed Abstracts for sessions coordinated by OW2

Community Summit Session Abstract

The Open World Forum Community Summit is an annual open workshop focusing on the growth and management of open source communities. This year, leaders and practitioners from free and open source software communities will discuss the evolution of the technical tools made available to open source projects.

Open source projects are collaborative by nature, they are always supported by some shared infrastructure. Open source developers today have access to a number of online tools they could not have imagined years ago. GitHub, Bitbucket, SourceForge, ohloh, Cloudbees, etc. they all offer valuable services to open source projects. While open source communities are not defined only by their technical infrastructures, the provision of tangible resources play a significant role in keeping them together. Is the growing supply of free tools changing the role of open source communities and the way they operate? What evolution are we witnessing in our day-to-day operations? What is happening to the community as the place where a collective governance is implemented. Is it disappearing? Are the community-less projects the future of open source collaboration? On the other hand, now that tools are freely available and in abundance, it may be that communities do not need to run technical infrastructures. If that is the case, what is the future of the ''infrastructure-less'' community?

European Collaborative Innovation Session Abstract

Change in the IT industry is characterized by the raise of complex, highly capital-intensive systems and multi-year innovation programs. This session will illustrate how publicly-funded collaborative innovation programs leverage open source to help shape the future of the IT industry.
