The "fOSSa" conference (Free/Open Source Software Academics) is co-organised by INRIA and OW2 Europe Local Chapter. It will review Open Source fundamentals (Business models, licenses, collaboration, communities, promotion, exploitation, sustainability) and will present innovating Open Source project as well as communities experiences. fOSSa is the first international Open Source Conference event located in Grenoble! The fOSSa audience mainly focuses on academia and research centres but does not close the door to industrials as in many cases academia needs industrials and vice versa: we believe that Open Source model can improve such kind of collaboration in a much more natural way.
Sun Microsystems participates to that event.
