Organized by

C-DAC, Mumbai

Supported by

Computer Society of India, Div II on Software & SIG-OSS

* * * CALL FOR PAPERS * * *

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
