International workshop: Free/Libre/Open Source Software: Worldwide impact

Brussels, April 26-28, 2006

Agenda, Location and other info: www.flossworld.org/conf/

This first international workshop of the EU-funded FLOSSWorld project will
bring together all consortium partners including 8 non-EU countries:
Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, India, Malaysia, South Africa.
Additional participants from these countries, observers from the
organisations supporting the project will attend, and a limited number of
places may be available to interested people and the general public. For
this workshop participation from EU governments, universities, business
associations and the European Commission are being solicited.

Workshop participants will be experts representing the interests of the
open source community, government, businesses, researchers and higher
education institutes, as appropriate for the workshop questions. Some
participants will take a more active role as specific questions are
addressed, but in principle all the three research tracks below will be
treated in each single workshop.

Track 1: Study of human capacity building / skills development in open
source developer communities

Track 2: Study of inter-regional differences in software projects

Track 3: study of government usage/attitudes to open source and open

Additional topics may be raised by the working groups, including that of
gender and the role of women in open source communities. Workshops will
last two days, and will involve between 50-70 persons using presentations,
round tables and plenary debate talks.

Registration is free but REQUIRED. Please await confirmation of your
participation before making travel plans, as places are limited.
