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 targets programmers, students and anyone else interested in the open source movement, despite their background. 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. It is held on an annual basis since 2008 and till today it has been organized in 6 different cities. Everything is organized and set up by volunteers and financing comes from sponsorships and donations.

The organizing committee of FOSSCOMM 2018 calls the Free and Open source communities as well as other interested parties to submit their proposals for talks or workshops at https://fosscomm2018.gr/fs2018. FOSSCOMM’s official language is Greek, but this year we also accept submissions in English.

This year, the talks of the conference will be organized in tracks. To this end we 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. We are still figuring out the tracks, so we need your help: when you submit your proposal, please 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 we will add it to the list. In case you are a community who would like to organize a whole track, please contact us.

Stay informed about our news through our website and social media accounts.
