 Organized by C-DAC, Mumbai   Supported by   IEEE Computer Society, Mumbai and Chennai chapters 
Computer Society of India, Div II on Software & SIG-OSS     * * *   CALL FOR PAPERS   * * *   

NCOSS - 2009 is being
conceived of as a forum to bring together the various groups working on
developing Open Source Applications catering to specific domains in the
ICT world, including education, health, accessibility, localisation,
e-commerce, disaster management, expert systems, machine learning, etc.
A number of high quality software solutions are available in many of
these areas, for example, SugarCRM, Koha, Drupal, Moodle, Sahana,
CollabCAD, etc. Work on these systems require a combination of domain
knowledge and development expertise. Much of the public awareness in
open source is focussed on desktop, operating system and general
productivity tools. With this background, NCOSS-09 has chosen to focus
on the layer above this, bringing together groups working on various
application domains.
conference will present experiences in deploying FOSS applications,
comparative studies among competing software solutions, efforts in
adapting and localising FOSS applications, development of new
applications, etc. The conference will consist of the following:
