The OW2 community steps up its presence at Open Source Experience Paris 2023

The OW2 open source community is very active at OSXP this month, with 12 booths staffed by OW2 members, including 4 in the OW2 Village, and several conference presentations.

Paris, December 6, 2023 - OW2, the community promoting professional open source software, announces its presence at Open Source Experience 2023, to be held at the Palais des Congrès in Paris on December 6 and 7, 2023.

On the show floor, the OW2 community booth (#H24) reveals the projects of three association members and those of two initiatives:

  • Xwiki presents the latest news on its eponymous knowledge management platform, and Cryptpad, the end-to-end encrypted open source collaborative suite. 
  • WAARP unveils its secure file-sharing solutions.
  • The City of Paris demonstrates its Lutèce open source portal, designed to rapidly create a dynamic website or application, and the CitéLibre framework for local authorities. 
  • The Horizon Europe NGI Search cascade funding project specifies the next two calls for projects aimed at developers of open source software improving methods and mechanisms for searching and discovering data on the Internet. University researchers, innovative start-ups and SMEs can benefit from financial, scientific and marketing support. 
  • The OSPO Alliance's Good Open Source Governance (GGI) initiative outlines its methodological framework to help organizations structure their use of open source software through an open source strategy team, the OSPO (open source program office).

Other OW2 members welcome visitors at their own booths: BlueMind, Centreon, FactorFX, Huawei (with a MiniApp programming contest), Inria, Linphone, Microsoft, Smile and Worteks.

Beyond the exhibition, the OW2 community is also active in conferences, with a keynote speech by OW2 CEO Pierre-Yves Gibello and several other presentations:
