November 2011 Newsletter

[OW2 Newsletter - November 2011 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

Get ready for OW2con 2011, November, 23-24, the third edition of the OW2 community annual conference!

Check out the great program we've put together for you. Once again, attendance at our Annual Conference is completely FREE of charge thanks to our sponsors Canonical, Inria, Microsoft and Orange. REGISTER HERE. Space is limited! And help promote the OW2 Annual Conference by inserting the OW2con button in your blog, website or eNewsletter, copy from here.

Our conference theme, “Open Source: The Innovation Drive” is a testimonial to the value creation potential of open source and to the state of the art technologies presented by our 50 distinguished speakers. OW2con 2011 will showcase the leading role played by the OW2 community in the changing nature of open source software. OW2 is uniquely positionned to leverage the evolution of open source from a disruptive model in commoditized product categories to key innovation driver in emerging technology segments such as cloud computing.

Last month's China Open Source Week (COSW) was a great success. Propelling OW2 to a new level in China, we are already committed to COSW2012. For more details and pictures on the COSW series of events, please follow the links from here. As a direct result of COSW we are pleased to welcome two new members: Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA ) who will host the 2012 OW2-Scilab programming contest conference and Forever OSS, China's most dynamic pure play open source systems integrator.

I look forward to seeing many of you again at OW2con (November 23-24) in Paris!
