First International Conference on Open Source Systems

The goal of OSS2005 is be a holistic forum on OSS where to convey people interested in OSS and coming from a widely diverse background. Therefore, OSS2005 will be a forum to discuss theories, practices, experiences, and tools on development and applications of OSS systems, with specific focus on two aspects: * the development of open source systems and the underlying technical, social, and economics issue * the adoption of OSS solutions and the implications of such adoption both in the public and in the private sector. OSS2005 will bring together people from industry, public administration, and academia to share experiences and ideas and to provide an archival source for important papers on open source topics. The conference is also meant to provide information and education to practitioners, identify directions for further research, and to be an ongoing platform for technology transfer. The conference will consist of technical presentations, panels, poster sessions, workshops, tutorials, PhD and an Open Educational Symposium.
