NCOSS-09: National Conference on Open Source Software
May 25th - 26th, 2009, Mumbai, India
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.
The 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:
Invited talks by experts from India and abroad
Presentation of contributed papers selected based on refereeing by a panel of referees
Exhibition by industry and academia
Pre conference Tutorials (on May 24th )
Papers are invited on the topics listed below. All papers will be
subject to external refereeing and acceptance will be subject to
referee evaluation. Accepted papers will be published in the conference
proceedings. We also invite proposals for tutorials.
