A three-day camp on free and open source software called “FOSSilize” is going to be held at IIT Guwahati campus on September 3-5. The goal of the event is to increase the awareness, integration and adoption of free and open source software (FOSS) tools among the students. The emphasis is on building the capacity of the students to use FOSS. The event will bring together students from both the technical and non-technical colleges in the region. The aim is to use this event - and subsequent activities - as an opportunity to broaden expertise, forge new ideas and connections, and encourage the creative use of FOSS within the different projects and initiatives in the region.
The event will be conducted in association with India’s premier IT organisation CDAC, the social enterprising company called Mahiti in Bangalore and Foundation for People Empowerment – an IT and New Media advocacy group based Guwahati.
Interested students are invited to participate the event. More information and application forms are available online at www.fossilize.net.
