# FrOSCon 2017 Call for Projects #

Hereby, we invite you to participate in the twelfth Free and Open Source
Software Conference (FrOSCon 2017).

FrOSCon is a two-day conference on Free Software and Open Source. It takes
place on August 19th/20th, 2017 at the University of Applied Sciences
Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, in St. Augustin near Bonn, Germany.

The main part of the conference is a comprehensive range of talks and
workshops. Furthermore, there is a large exhibition area, where projects
have the opportunity to present themselves and get in touch with users and
developers. Moreover, we offer a few rooms for Free Software projects to
organize developer meetings or to present their own program for the
visitors of the conference.

We would be pleased if your project would like to contribute to this
year's FrOSCon and thus support the communication and exchange within the
Open Source and Free Software community. Depending on the kind of your
participation, there is different information available to you.

# Booth #

questions at exhibitors at froscon.org. The registration for booths will be

If your project wants to sign up for a developer room, please visit
https://callforprojects.froscon.de, register your project and submit a
proposal. The proposal should contain a short summary (1-2 paragraphs) of

developer rooms usually exceeds the number of rooms we can offer, we will

feel free to contact projects at froscon.org. The deadline for the submission
of developer room proposals is also May 23rd.
