LPI Partner of the Month April 2012: FrOSCon

At FrOSCon – the Free and Open Source Software Conference – it's all about Free and Open Source software. This year FrOSCon will be organized for the seventh time by the computing faculty of the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University in cooperation with LUUSA and FrOSCon e.V. in Sankt Augustin near Bonn. LPI is since 2006 Sponsor of the FrOSCon and will be offering discounted exams at this event.

During the last weekend in August (25. and 26.), the University of Bonn Rhein Sieg will host the conference: There will be an exciting program of talks on Saturday as well as Sunday. About 100 talks impart various aspects of free software.


The organizers are working diligently to make the seventh FrOSCon a success and an exciting event for the numerous visitors. Since preparations have just started, neither the agenda is clear nor the sub-conference, which takes place within the framework of FrOSCon, has been announced. The organizing team will shortly announce the Call for Paper and the Call for Projects, that will be the corner stone of the program.

Subjects of the talks cover general topics like operating systems, security or education, as well as selected key issues, which also will be announced soon. Last year's agenda http://programm.froscon.de gives an impression how the schedule could look like – matching videos are under http://froscon.tv.


Besides the official talks, the FrOSCon provides space for presentations and workshops about Open Source projects in special project rooms. Moreover, in 2012 – like in previous years – LPI will be a loyal partner: Since the first FrOSCon in 2006 LPI has been hosting exam labs with discounted LPI exams at the conference.

Young and old can free their mind on the bouncy castle. Who prefers communicating with other interested parties and open source experts can visit the exhibition at FrOSCon. Here exhibitors have the opportunity to present themselves and their projects, and to communicate with visitors. On Saturday evening, discussions can be continued in a relaxed atmosphere at the social event.


Further information about FrOSCon are available under http://www.froscon.de/. On this page, there will be shortly announced important dates and news, as well as the start and end of the Call for Papers and the Call for Projects, and the main topics of this year's FrOSCon.
