Call For Papers

FOSS Backstage – taking place on 4th & 5th March 2024 in Berlin – is an open platform and we thrive on your contributions. Together with our dedicated program committee we want to shape a program that truly is “by the community for the community”. Therefore we are looking forward to your input.

We are looking for talks which educate others on the best practices in open source project leadership, community management, open source project metrics, open source strategy for enterprise, adopting open source collaboration in corporations, legal matters when dealing with open source and many more. For inspiration you can have a look at the recordings of past editions of FOSS Backstage.

Here are some example questions that might be discussed at FOSS backstage and might inspire your proposal:

- What are best practices for teams scattered around the world?
- How can an Open Source business model look like?
- How to grow and maintain your open source communities and allies?
- How to manage your relationship to those stakeholders and what role do OSPOs have in this?
- What is the role of design in good open source projects?
- What are your favourite tools and procedures for working in open source projects?
- How to manage upstream dependencies from a legal and security point of view?
