Organization: Free and Open Source Software Conference -
Bonn/Rhein-Sieg, Germany

FrOSCon is a two-day conference on free software and open source, which
takes place on 24th and 25th June 2006 at the University of Applied
Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, in St. Augustin near Bonn, Germany.

Focus of the conference is a comprehensive range of talks about current
topics in free software and open source. Furthermore, space will be
provided for developers of free software and open source projects to
organize their own developer meetings or even their own program.

FrOSCon is organized for the first time in 2006 by the department of
computer science in collaboration with the Linux/Unix User Group Sankt
Augustin, the student body and the FrOSCon e.V., and aims to establish
itself as the largest event of its kind in Rhineland.

=== Projects ===

Successful projects form the backbone of the open source and free
software movements. FrOSCon wants to acknowledge this important role of
projects for the community by offering special facilities to individual

=== Developer Rooms ===

Open source and free software projects are often coordinated primarily
via the internet, via email, the web and IRC. Nonetheless, personal
contact between members of the project is of paramount importance. A
conference like FrOSCon can serve as a meeting place, where distant
members of the project can come together and meet.

FrOSCon wants to offer dedicated developer rooms to individual
projects, which are organized by the projects themselves. Thereby, we
provide a space for projects to hold special-interest talks or
meetings, to congregate, exchange views and to socialize.

We have rooms in different sizes suitable for small developer meetings
up to sub-conferences. We offer Internet access in all developer rooms.
Besides tables and chairs, most rooms are or can be equipped with a
video beamer. If necessary, an additional lecture hall can be assigned
for talks or presentations where a larger audience is expected.

=== Application ===

Please send applications for a developer room via email to
projects at froscon.org. Please include at least the name of your project,
the URL of your website and the expected number of participants in your

The Call for Projects ends on March 31st.

=== Call for Papers ===

Please note that our Call for Papers is still open until March 15th.
Don't miss the chance to submit a talk.

=== Booth Space ===

If your project wants to man a booth at FrOSCon, feel free to contact
projects at froscon.org as well.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
The FrOSCon Team
