Event Details

Flossie 2012 is a free, two-day event for women who work with or are otherwise interested in Free and Open Source Software (FLOSS) and in Open Data, Knowledge and Education.

Flossie is an independent network of women practitioners that has its roots in social change movements as well as arts, technology and academia. Whether you code, tinker or want to explore alternatives to ‘big-tech’ corporations, all women are welcome to this conference.

The first day will mix micro-talks with birds of a feather sessions to the work we do. On the second day there will be more structured workshops and discussions for both experienced practitioners and women new to FLOSS to make contact and skill-share.

We invite proposals for talks, workshops and Birds of a Feather sessions. The Deadline for proposals is Monday 12 March 2012. The organising committee will send notifications regarding session proposals no later than 26th March 2012.

 

Who is this event for?

  • Academics, students, researchers and writers
  • Women users, advocates and developers of FLOSS, free culture and open data
  • Activists, campaigners and non-profits
  • Women entrepreneurs using FLOSS
  • Digital artists using FLOSS

 

Themes:

  • Sharing our current experiences and achievements
  • Building cross-disciplinary and cross-community networks
  • Improving visibility of women in FLOSS as well as technology in general and reaching out to new women
