The FOSSY schedule has been set! With four days of talks and workshops, we are looking forward to a fantastic conference.

Registration is open and ticket sales are ramping up. Be sure to buy your ticket to give us time to accommodate food orders and dietary restrictions. And our hotel block at the Hyatt still has rooms available that we want to fill. It’s a great time to visit Oregon so make the most and see some sights while you are there.
If you would like to volunteer, we are looking for people to help out with setup/ cleanup, room hosting, code of conduct enforcement and the other tasks listed on our volunteering page. Volunteers will get a complimentary ticket, good for all 4 days of the conference.
We are so thankful for all the effort and patience the community has shown us with our first time running a conference. As this first year will be a learning opportunity for us, we hope to gain experience from working cooperatively with all of you to find out how to best serve our community and provide a meaningful conference experience. Working with you all is a pleasure and thank you so much for building this conference with us!
