=== OSS 2013 | Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals ==== 

The 9th International Conference on Open Source Systems 

Koper/Capodistria, Slovenia, 25-28 June 2013 

Scope of OSS 2013 

Free Open Source Software (FOSS) is nowadays influencing the way 
organizations and individuals create, distribute, acquire, and use 
software and software-based services. FOSS applications are supporting 
the web based economy and it is growingly being adopted by public 
institutions. It has become a useful instrument for educators and 
researchers as well as an important aspect of e-government and 
information society initiatives. The transparency of its development 
process and its resulting open source code has become a viable 
alternative to closed source software. Publicly funded software 
development projects are often required to produce FOSS. The widespread 
adoption of FOSS has introduced new challenges as new legal constraints 
between integrated FOSS and CSS components, requirement of a more 
structured development process that allows the collaboration of a large 
number of stakeholders, or the requirement of a stronger quality control 
of development processes and FOSS products. FOSS verification is 
gaining momentum in FOSS communities; code debugging, and adherence to 
code conventions have already an important role in FOSS projects. The 
adoption of other verification activities can further contribute to the 
quality of FOSS. 

The goal of the 9th International Conference on Open Source Systems, OSS 
2013 is to provide an international forum where a diverse community of 
professionals from academia, industry and public sector, and diverse 
FOSS initiatives can come together to share research findings and 
practical experiences. The conference is also meant to provide 
information to practitioners, identify directions for further research, 
and to be an ongoing platform for technology transfer, no matter which 
form of FOSS is being pursued. 

OSS 2013 accepts research papers, industry papers, formal tool 
demonstrations, lightning talks and posters. It also invites proposals 
for tutorials and workshops, submissions to the doctoral symposium, and 
submissions of panels. Accepted papers will be included in the 
conference proceedings, which are published by Springer. Authors are 
invited to submit papers and proposals on a variety of FOSS topics, 
including but not limited to the list of topics described in this call. 
This year's major conference theme is FOSS Verification.
