FrOSCon 2012 Newsletter #2


The 2nd edition of the FrOSCon 2012 newsletter.

Dear friends of FrOSCon,

After a nice weekend in the Linuxhotel, the daily routine starst catching up with us. Still we could check a lot of tasks off our list during our organisation weekened. ;)

But Withour you, your talks, projects and booths we couldn't realise FrOSCon. That's why we ask you to give in your talks until May 23. This year we would especially appreciate contributions in the following areas:

  • OpenData (Free Software in the fields Open Science and Open Government)
  • Big Data (Semantic Technologies,Geo-Mapping, Deduplication, Visualization)
  • Digital Privacy (Best Practices, Distributed Privacy, Data Leakage)

Until May 23 there is also the Call for Exhibitors. If you want to present yourself with a booth, please register at

If you need a whole room for your project, you can apply for a Developers room.

To do so, please write a short Mail to before April 30. It should include one or two paragraphs where you describe what plan to do in the room and special requirements you have.

By the way, we would like to see your children at FrOSCon as well. There will be a kidstrack as well that can be co-created by the young Open Source fans. More information can be found at

We are excited to read about all your contributions and ideas.
