OW2con: Call for Presentations - Deadline February 25, 2024
January 2024 by Marc Jacob
OW2con is the European open source conference organized by OW2. An international meeting of developers, IT companies, academics and non-profit organizations, OW2con brings together the entire open source community, during two days of presentations ranging from tech topics to business and ethical issues of open source. It also offers a unique opportunity to establish contact with peers through friendly networking sessions. OW2con’24 will take place on June 11-12, 2024 in Paris-Châtillon.
The Call for Presentations is open. This year we are giving the highlight on the theme of open source funding: what are the current solutions for innovators, start-ups, ISVs or associations to finance their development? Private or public financing? Are national and European public policies up to the challenges?
Please submit your proposals, in this theme or any other CFP topic, in English.
Be part of the action! Submit your presentation (Deadline February 25)
