I'm a member of Open World Forum committee and I would like to say you: that is the time to contribute on program :-)

The Open World Forum is the first European summit to gather political representatives, decision-makers and experts to debate the technological, economic and social impacts that the Free and Open-Source technologies bring to the market. The forum was first held in 2008, and is now organized annually in Paris, France, with more than 200 speakers coming from 24 countries, and a global audience that was 2100-people strong in 2012. The Open World Forum is held in partnership with all the major international communities in Free Software and with the key players in the digital economy.


The Open World Forum is back for its sixth edition. It will be held on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of October 2013, and will take place in a completely new setting in order to accommodate a larger audience. This edition will be a milestone on the way to become the premier global event mixing state policies, social concerns, technology and economy. OWF will take place at the Beffroi in Paris, France and will again be organized by Systematic Paris Region. More than 3,000 attendees are expected for this next Edition, reflecting the renovated program.
