Please click here for directions.

The purpose of the OSADL Networking Day again is to enable networking and collaboration among OSADL and its members including academic and associated members.

In a preliminary approach, the morning and early afternoon sessions will focus on more technical and scientific topics, while in the afternoon more general topics will be presented and discussed. Thereafter you are cordially invited to join us for a guided and entertaining tour up to the famous Heidelberg castle and to have dinner in a typical old-town Heidelberg restaurant.

We would very much appreciate if many of you could actively participate in the Networking day and contribute a presentation. In addition to technical, scientific or more general presentations of selected topics of approx. 30 minutes of duration, we will also accept product-related short communications  of 10-15 minutes of duration. If you would like to showcase new products, services or a demo presentation, some exhibition space will be made available for this purpose as well.

Possible topics are, but not limited to:

  • Technical aspects of using OSS in the industry, such as
    • Real-time kernel, real-time communication protocols
    • Hardware support
    • Software frameworks
    • Distribution strategies
    • etc.
  • Legal aspects of Open Source Software
  • Using OSS in a safety-critical environment

Another aspect of the OSADL Networking Day is to give potential OSADL members the opportunity to get know better OSADL and its way to assist its members. Therefore, a certain number of seats is reserved for companies who are planning to join OSADL, but would like to get some more information. Every member, therefore, has the possibility to invite customers, partners, etc. who might be interested.
