Software development and deployment has evolved tremendously over the 
last two decades. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is going 
mainstream. The industry is asking for an increasing number of 
well-trained professionals that are able to install, exploit, 
maintain, develop and create sophisticated software artifacts, in 
particular coming from the FOSS world, and that furthermore bring in 
knowledge about legal, economic and management issues. 
Academia is called to contribute now to satisfy this demand by 
developing a curriculum specifically taking into account the changes 
that FOSS has brought to the software ecosystem, and by incorporating 
FOSS into the early stages of the traditional IT curriculum. 
This special track at OWF will present some of the currently existing 
FOSS-oriented diplomas from all over the world. The goal is to 
consolidate and structure our experiences and ideas into a common set 
of curriculum guidelines, and to issue recommendations for its 
14.00-14.30 Opening. Roberto Di Cosmo, University Paris Diderot Paris 7 
14.30-16.30 Highlights from experiences around the world 
 - A Brazilian Viewpoint. Fabio Kon, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil 
 - Teaching FOSS Electives in Indian Engineering Schools. C N Krishnan, 
   NRCFOSS, India 
 - The Pisa master in FOSS management. Susanna Pelagatti, University of 
   Pisa, Italy 
 - The Bologna master in FOSS technology. Renzo Davoli, University of 
   Bologna, Italy 
 - The Master on Open Source. Cyril Fonlupt, Université du Littoral, France 
 - The EOF Experience. Olivier Ricou, EPITA, France 
16.30-18.30 Discussion and networking on the FOSS curriculum guidelines 
The sessions will be chaired by Jesus Barahona(Univ. RJC Madrid), 
Emmanuel Chailloux (Univ. Paris 6), Renzo Davoli (Univ Bologna), 
Roberto Di Cosmo (Univ. Paris 7) and Olivier Ricou (EPITA). 
Participation is free of charge. Please register for the HIGHER EDUCATION

You are also encouraged to register for, and attend the panels in the CAREERS
