NCOSS-09: National Conference on Open Source Software May 25th - 26th,
2009, Mumbai, India

* * *  CALL FOR PAPERS  * * *

NCOSS - 2009 is being conceived of as a forum to bring together the
various groups working on developing Open Source Applications catering
to specific domains in the ICT world, including education, health,
accessibility, localisation, e-commerce, disaster management, expert
systems, machine learning, etc. A number of high quality software
solutions are available in many of these areas, for example, SugarCRM,
Koha, Drupal, Moodle, Sahana, CollabCAD, etc. Work on these systems
require a combination of domain knowledge and development expertise.
Much of the public awareness in open source is focussed on desktop,
operating system and general productivity tools. With this background,
NCOSS-09 has chosen to focus on the layer above this, bringing
together groups working on various application domains.

The conference will present experiences in deploying FOSS
applications, comparative studies among competing software solutions,
efforts in adapting and localising FOSS applications, development of
new applications, etc.

The conference will consist of the following: Invited talks by experts
from India and abroad, Presentation of contributed papers selected
based on refereeing by a panel of referees, Exhibition by industry and
academia, Pre conference Tutorials (on May 24th), Panel discussion.

Papers are invited on the topics listed below. All papers will be
subject to external refereeing and acceptance will be subject to
referee evaluation. Accepted papers will be published in the
conference proceedings. We also invite proposals for tutorials.
