The 5th International Conference on Open Source Systems (OSS 2009)
3-6 June 2009, Skövde, Sweden
Registration is now open at the registration site: http://oss2009.org/index.php?id=aboutregistering.htm
Over the past decade, the Free and Open Source Software (F/OSS) phenomenon has had a global impact on the way organisations and individuals create, distribute, acquire and use software and software-based services. F/OSS has challenged the conventional wisdom of the software engineering and software business communities, has become a useful instrument for educators and researchers as well as an important
aspect of e-government and information society initiatives. F/OSS is a complex phenomenon that requires an interdisciplinary understanding of its engineering, technical, economic, legal and socio-cultural dynamics.
The goal of OSS 2009 is to provide an international forum where a diverse community from academia, industry and public administration can come together to share research findings and practical experiences. The conference is also meant to provide information and education to practitioners, identify directions for further research and to be an ongoing platform for technologytransfer.
