[ Thanks to Tony Stanco for this link. ]
The Center for Open Source in Government [www.eGovOS.org], along with The Cyber Security Policy and Research Institute (CSPRI) of The George Washington University and others, is proud to present their second Open Source in Government conference called "Open Source for National and Local eGovernment Programs in the U.S. and EU" to be held in Washington, DC, USA, March 17 - 19, 2003.
This conference is designed to discuss best practices, raise awareness and share experiences among policy makers and senior IT officials from the U.S. and Europe. The conference will draw participants from local, national and international organizations from the public, private and academic sectors.
We strongly encourage Open Source companies to submit proposals, since government officials at the last conference were particularly interested in the Open Source companies, Zope and DevIS, because they provided examples of Open Source solutions that the government could buy.
To facilitate the organization of topics and events at the conference, you are invited to submit speaking and demonstration proposals.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
