Bradley M. Kuhn keynotes OSS 2016 & speaks to User Groups in Norway
Conservancy’s Distinguished Technologist On Week-Long Speaking Tour in Sweden and Norway
This week, Conservancy’s Bradley M. Kuhn, visits Sweden and Norway to
speak about software freedom and the work of Conservancy. This week long
speaking tour includes three talks, including a keynote at an annual
academic conference in Sweden, and two talks to user groups in Norway.
Today in Götenberg, Sweden, Kuhn delivered the keynote at the the Twelfth
International Conference on Open Source Systems (OSS 2016). In his
keynote, Kuhn proposed collaboration between Conservancy and academic
researchers in Open Source and Free Software to encourage more
Free Software licensing of academic software systems developed as part of Computer Science research.
In Norway, Kuhn will speak in Oslo on Friday 3 June at
18:30 and in Bergen on
Saturday 4 June at 14:00. Kuhn will deliver a talk entitled Tales
from 20 Years of Copyleft Enforcement, in which he will give the
highlights of his many years of work enforcing the GPL for various Free
Software projects, including his recent work enforcing the GPL for Linux.
The presentations will be recorded and live-streamed; details are available on
the user group’s websites.
Software freedom enthusiasts and GNU/Linux users in Norway are welcomed to
these two events. Bradley looks forward to spending time with Free Software
users and contributors in Norway this week.
