CFP open until May 14th

April 24, 2023

Today is the day we open the FOSSY CFP and ticket sales! Join us in Portland, OR on July 13-16th at the Oregon Convention Center. Our track organizers put together an incredible list of tracks including FOSS For Education, Open Source AI + Data, Science of Community, FOSS in Daily Life and much much more. We are looking for speakers of all experience levels and backgrounds; whether you are just getting into technology and want to share your experience or have been developing free software for ages, we want to hear from you!

For the first year of FOSSY we are excited at tracks out volunteer organizers have put together. You’ll also find tracks curated by SFC staff including Copyleft & Compliance and SFC Member Projects. Help us put together a program dedicated to showcasing how FOSS is used around the world to help cultivate community, innovate and let us live freely with technology. It’s your expertise, knowledge and experience that will help make this conference a success.

To submit a talk, please visit our Call for Proposals page to make an account and enter your talk under a specific track. If you aren’t sure which track you fit into, or feel you are a bit outside the scope for any of the listed tracks, use the Wild card track. Our CFP will be open until May 14th (with notice of acceptance the week of the 21st) so be sure to find us on IRC #conservancy on, XMPP or email. We will start having office hours at 19:00 UTC on Wednesdays in our chat room for anyone to come and ask questions.

You can also purchase your ticket for the conference today! We have tiered pricing to make the conference affordable to professionals, hobbyists and anyone with an interest in free software. Lunch will be provided all 4 days.
