CeBIT 2010: Call for Papers for Open Source Forum

Dec 02, 2009

Linux New Media AG is organizing an integrated presentation series for the Open Source Forum at the CeBIT 2010 running March 2 through 6 in Hanover, Germany. Users from organizations and agencies as well as developers from the open source community are invited to apply for a free presentation slot up until January 7, 2010.

The Open Source Software theme will get an especially attractive venue in Hall 2 at CeBIT 2010. The "call for papers" is now officially open. We're looking for practitioners who can report on their experiences using free software in business and government. We're also seeking speakers from the open source community to present new and innovative projects as well as legal topics and technologies that characterize free sofware. Noteworthy topics already part of the conference program include open source solutions for cloud computing, security, Web 2.0, desktop and mobile networking. The complete presentation program will be available per live stream on and subsequently in the online archives for free.

Interested speakers can send their proposals with the title of the talk, information about the speaker and a short description of the content up until January 7, 2010 to Talks can be in English or German. The user-based talks and follow-up Q&As are scheduled for 40 minutes; the presentations of free projects should be 20 minutes each.

The title theme "Free and Open Source Software" at CeBIT 2010 will be accompanied by the "Open Source Forum" and "Open Source Project Lounge" that should provide software projects additional opportunities to present their work to the general public.
