The Third International Conference on Open Source Systems

Back in action a break sampling the delights of Frankonian Federweiss and Wuerst… and this conference notice from Walt Scacchi has appeared in my inbox:

The goal of OSS 2007 is to provide an international forum where a diverse community of professionals 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 technology transfer.

Topics include Public and Private Sector Adoption of OSS Solutions, OSS and e-government and OSS Business models and strategies. All interesting stuff; the question is – can I relate it to e-participation?

It all happens June 11-14 2007, Limerick, Ireland. Deadline for papers is 12 January 2007.
