National Conference on Open Source Software -NCOSS'09 May 25th - 26th, 2009
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.
