Call for Presentations

The 17th International Conference on Open Source Systems (OSS) aims at providing an international forum where a diverse community of professionals from academia, industry, and the public sector, and diverse FLOSS initiatives can come together to share research findings and practical experiences. The conference is also a forum to provide information and education to practitioners, identify directions for further research, and to be an ongoing platform for technology transfer, no matter which form of FLOSS is being pursued.

  • real life OSS use cases in private or public companies        
  • startups successful stories of turning research to businesses        
  • best practices and OSS models in public or private sectors        
  • any other relevant topic facilitating OSS adoption or related to technology transfer
