Track descriptions

Artificial Intelligence

Like driving an autonomous car, our daily decisions are about to rely on AI algorithms, near real-time massive data analysis and well-trained neural networks. Beyond the technical challenges, are ethical and legal issues being considered? 


Cloud environment is an opportunity and also a challenging environment for open source solutions. You will find in this track both business and technical talks. 

Community & governance

This track covers community-oriented topics around collaboration, community building and community sustainability. It also includes presentations talking about open source governance and OSPOs : what are the best practices regarding compliance, code base management policies, developing an OSS culture, etc.? 

Digital commons

This track is open to various contributors, acting in the technical or political fields of sovereignty, social economy, open data, sustainability, cooperation, etc.: come and share insights about how open source paves the road to commons. 

Edge & IOT

A redistribution of data processing and data storage is now possible with the IoT rise, 5G networks and Edge computing. Are open source Edge/IoT infrastructures and platforms still in the demo stage? Or are they already providing effective and scalable use cases? 

Financing open source

Developer time is a valuable resource, and contributors to open source software might want to be paid for this work as part of their regular workday. How is open source funded today? What are the trends among the renowned funding options (support to foundations, private investment, support and training, SaaS and hosting, Open Core, etc.)? This track includes testimonies and feedback from real stories. 


Mobile is at the heart of our digital usages and is frequently a mix of open and proprietary software. This track includes talks related to projects and initiatives that try to increase the share of open source in the mobile environment. 

OW2 customers cases

This session includes real-word use cases of OW2 technology: production use of OW2 projects by end-users, systems integrator solutions deployed with OW2 projects or integration of OW2 projects in commercial offerings. 

Open science & research

The open science movement is attracting a growing number of researchers in France and in Europe. Scientific publications, cooperation with industry, exploitation of results: what difference does it make for the OW2 ecosystem? How the open source approach is impacting scientific organizations' daily work? 


For talks that don’t fit in any other tracks! 

Standards & technologies

This track is for small (and bigger) building blocks that are used to create the foundations of larger solutions, the tools that are used to put them together, protocols that allow communication and interoperability, etc.
