On both conference days FrOSCon offers a comprehensive program of lectures and workshops in 8 rooms (see 2016). Additional lectures and workshops are offered by several Open Source Projects in their own project rooms.

Like every year there is also a social event with BBQ and local beer on Saturday evening to celebrate FrOSCon.

Kids and Youth Track "FrogLabs"

In this year the kids and youth track "FrogLabs" is organized from kids for kids, meaning that theys can present their own projects and ideas in workshops.

Full participation in FrogLabs like every year requires registration through http://kids.froscon.de/. There will, however, be a few places for interested children to take part in the workshops only. These seats will be very limited.
