Group photo from OSCAL 2016. This year we are expecting more international speakers and even more participants.
We are intergalactically excited to inform you that ‘Call for Proposals’ applications are now open. This as an open invitation to developers, advocates, free libre open source hacktivists and open knowledge troublemakers from Albania, the region and overseas to submit proposals. You must be aware that the topic MUST be related with open knowledge, open source software and/or hardware, copyleft, software freedom or generally open culture and knowledge sharing. We have a number of sessions available during the conference, please feel free to submit multiple papers, but keep in mind that presentation length for each session is 15 or 30 minutes and for workshops: 60 or 120 minutes.
Are you in doubt of doing this? Get here a glance of what OSCAL 2016 speakers experienced.
Travel and accommodation sponsorships
There are no sponsored presenters confirmed at the moment since we are in the process of gathering interested partners and sponsors. In case you don’t need travel sponsorship and have decided to come anyway we guarantee you’ll get the admiration and love of the Albanian Free Libre Open Source community and high quality hosting from our volunteers.
Almost all sessions will be held in English since the participants are from many different places, but proposals should definitely be submitted in English. You are free to propose more than one session, in a separate submission.
Conference date: 13-14 May 2017 (Saturday + Sunday)
Deadline of CFP: 15.03.2017 11.59PM GMT+1
