The main theme for this year's conference is "New Challenges of Mainstream Open Source Software."

Open source software (OSS) going mainstream brings a whole range of new challenges to the open source ecosystem. Enterprise middleware allowed sharing and re-use of the same open components across all sectors, providing critical mass and maximize economies of scale. But, as it becomes increasingly mainstream, OSS expands into new territories where its advantages are not quite so obvious. The SaaS model free access to source code is not as important as data protection; in the IoT world, software becomes dependent on specific hardware and standards and its sharing power is eroded; going mainstream, OSS has to prove its worth to conventional business managers who are far from free software advocates. These are some of the new challenges underpinning this year's annual conference theme. OW2con'17 is a special edition as OW2 is reaching its 10th anniversary.

OW2con'17 is kindly hosted by Orange Gardens Innovation Center in Paris - Châtillon (map).

Attend OW2con'17 for two days of useful and insightful project presentations, demonstrations, roundtables, keynote presentations, plus free lunch and, this year, a special 10th anniversary celebration dinner party taking place on June 26 evening at Le Petit Bain, a floating boat and art center on River Seine.
