FOSSology – Hands on Training

FOSSology – Hands on Training
October 31, 2019 | 13:00 – 18:00
Lyon Convention Centre
Registration Cost: $100

FOSSology is an open source license compliance software system and toolkit. As a toolkit, you can run automated license, copyright and export control scans from the command line. As a system, a Web interface provides you with a compliance workflow. License, copyright and export control scanners are tools used in the workflow. Analyzing open source license compliance requires expert knowledge. Consequently, the use of the tool requires an understanding of license analysis problems and how they are covered by FOSSology. This hands-on training session will provide this understanding.

The following elements are covered:

Challenges in real-world examples at license analysis
Learning how to cope with license proliferation and custom license texts
Efficiently managing large open source components with heterogeneous licensing
Saving work with reusing license conclusions of open source packages when analyzing
How FOSSology works with the SPDX standard
New features in the past year of FOSSology
This course will be valuable to anyone concerned with and involved in Open Source Management, including operational and legal executives, software development managers, open source program managers, and developers. Participants are encouraged to directly work on the given FOSSology software, in the best case on their own notebook computers for using FOSSology after the session as well. Assistance for installation will be provided.

Open Source Software in Safety-Critical Systems Summit

Open Source Software in Safety-Critical Systems Summit
October 31, 2019 | 8:00 – 17:00
Lyon Convention Centre
Registration Cost: $100

This summit is the second summit in the area of open-source software and safety-critical systems, being a further evolution of the last year’s Linux in Safety-Critical Systems Summit 2018. In addition to Linux, this year we will reach out and include presentations from activities and experts around other open-source projects that aim towards use in safety-critical systems.

This is a chance to get together in-person to present ideas and discuss how to achieve safety of current and future systems that use open-source software.

This summit should be of interest to:
+ Open-source projects who want to share how they plan to make their software and development process suitable for the use in the safety-critical systems
+ Experts from certification agencies to present their expectations on certification of open-source software projects and its proper use in safety-critical systems
+ Product developers to present their system context, relevant safety requirements and how open-source software may contribute to these safety requirements
+ Safety Element out of context (SEooC) providers, e.g., providers of hardware or software elements in safety-critical systems, to exchange on assumed safety requirements and a reasonable allocation to system elements.

For those interested in presenting, the CFP is open.

Key dates:
Abstract submission deadline: September 7th, 2019
Author notification: September 21st, 2019
