FOSSCOMM 2018, 13-14 October - Heraklion, Crete, Greece

11th FOSSCOMM conference 2018
October 13-14 2018
University of Crete, Heraklion

FOSSCOMM (Free and Open Source Software Communities Meeting) is the pan-Hellenic conference of free and open source software communities. It is addressed at programmers, students and anyone else interested in the open source movement, despite their background. Participating communities include the Hellenic Linux User Group (HELLUG), contributors of open source projects such as Mozilla, Fedora, OpenSuse, KDE and more. The content of the conference includes a wide variety of topics ranging from technical issues and workshops to translations, legal issues, political issues concerning open source software/hardware, etc. The attendance of the conference is free of charge.

Call for proposals
This year, the talks of the conference will be organized in tracks. The organizers have made contact with the Greek Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) community who will organize the security track, as well as with the Libre Space Foundation (LSF) for organizing the space and Software Defined Radio (SDR) tracks. They are still figuring out the tracks, so they need your help: when you submit your proposal, select an appropriate track. If you feel that your submission doesn’t fit in one of the existing tracks, you can suggest a new one and they will add it to the list. In case you are a community who would like to organize a whole track, contact them. FOSSCOMM’s official language is Greek, but submissions in English will also be accepted.

Anyone attending this event?

I have applied, but not sure if I can attend. You?

I don’t know yet tbh. I was asked by one of the organizers to share the event here but it was already posted. They were curious if there would be presence by our community. Hopefully you @kristiprogri and others will join. :slight_smile:
