Demo Hall for Open Source Applications
on 25th - 26th May 2009, Mumbai, India.
ABOUT DEMO HALL
The National Conference on Open Source Software, NCOSS-09, announces DEMO HALL for showcasing open source applications. The aim is to provide a platform for people to demonstrate their open source works/tools to the world. Irrespective of whether you have a paper at the conference, you can use this opportunity to showcase your work.
The application, to be demonstrated, should be an open source application ? i.e., an application which is open source, not just built using/on open source technologies. The application may be new systems or significant enhancements to existing open source applications. Adapting and adopting a collection of open source systems to solve a problem will also be considered. With lower priority, we will also consider existing applications with which you have extensive experience that you can share with the audience. So, if you find, say Moodle, an excellent learning management system and you have used it extensively, you could offer to demonstrate it, to spread awareness of such applications.
All those participating in the demo-hall must register for the conference. The demo hall will have demonstrations slotted for half an hour each. The demo-hall will run in parallel with the conference paper presentation, excluding the plenary sessions. The slot allocations will be done by the conference organisers, considering the topic of the demo and other parallel events likely at that time.
If you are interested in participating, mail your applications to ncoss@... a brief description of the demo sessions. Last date for submitting your 'Demo Hall' entries: May 05, 2009. According to its relevance to the conference and other constraints, we will short-list entries from received applications. The list of demo-hall entries will be announced periodically, adding new entries subject to availability of slots. So apply early...
