Open Source for Open Clouds

A unique opportunity to learn more about open source cloud projects
that will shape the computing landscape over the next ten years.

Supported by a group of industry-leading, globally renowned IT organisations, coming from industry, public administrations and research institutes, OW2 is becoming a major player in open source software. The OW2 annual conference is a unique opportunity for professionals to discover, learn and exchange knowledge, best practices and real-world experiences on open source middleware, generic enterprise applications and cloud computing platforms.

Who should attend the OW2 2010 Annual Conference?
 As an international high-technology conference, the event will gather attendees and speakers from Europe, USA, China, India and Brazil and will feature 2 days of high profile technical sessions. Software architects, developers, as well as managers and decision-makers in the open source field will be there to share their experiences and network with peers.

 OW2 Annual Conference is an opportunity to network with key open source industry leaders and broaden your technical knowledge.

New this year..
 The Annual Conference is an independent event. Last but not least, as an open community, we wanted to have an « open conference », offering the opportunity to the whole community to be active and express their views and experiences, this will now be possible through the « unconference sessions ».
