OsmoCon (Osmocom Conference) 2018 is the technical conference for Osmocom users, operators and developers!

We are happy to announce the date of OsmoCon 2018. It has been scheduled on October 18 + 19, 2018 and will happen in Berlin, Germany.

For the second time, the Osmocom Conference brings together users, operators and developers of the Osmocom Open Source cellular infrastructure projects, such as OsmoBTS, OsmoBSC, OsmoSGSN, OpenGGSN and others.

Join us for two days of presentations and discussions with the main developers behind Open Source Mobile Communications, as well as commercial and non-profit users of the Osmocom cellular infrastructure software.

You can find some initial information in our wiki at OsmoCon 2018, which will be updated as more information becomes available.

Call for Participation

We're also at the same time announcing the Call for Participation and call on everyone with experiences to share around the Osmocom member projects to submit talks, workshops, discussions or other proposals.

We are particularly looking for contributions about:

  • updates on features/functionality/status of individual Osmocom projects
  • success stories on how Osmocom projects are deployed in practice
  • migration from OsmoNITB to the post-NITB architecture
  • tutorials / workshops on how to setup / analyze Osmocom projects
  • statistics, reporting, operations aspects of Osmocom projects
  • third-party open source utilities to be used with Osmocom projects

OsmoDevCon introduces pretalx conference planning (1 comment)

Added by laforge 18 days ago

OsmoDevCon has successfully introduced the (obviously free/open source software) pretalx conference planning system for the schedule planning of the upcoming OsmoDevCon2018 conference.

All participants of OsmoDevCon submitting a talk have been receiving e-mails asking to confirm their respective talks/workshops using a confirmation link to the pretalx website.

We are planning to use pretalx for other upcoming events and would like to extend our thanks to the pretalx developers!

Talks on OpenCellular and Community Cellular Manager

Added by laforge about 1 year ago

We are happy to announce that the OsmoCon2017 schedule has just become even more exciting with the addition of two talks on two projects that relate to Osmocom: OpenCellular (as a hardware platform to run OsmoBTS, OsmoBSC, OsmoNITB, ...) and Community Cellular Manager as a software to manage Osmocom-based cellular networks.

Join us at OsmoCon2017 on April 21st, 2017 in Berlin for a full day schedule on Osmocom cellular infrastructure topics!

Community Cellular Manager

CCM is a software management and deployment suite enabling the operation of small-scale cellular networks that can also be used with the OpenCellular platform we announced in June. It makes it possible for organizations with limited technical capacity to leverage OpenCellular or third-party radio access network (RAN) solutions to build small-scale cellular networks in their own communities. See here for more information (and source code!).

OpenCellular

OpenCellular is an open source and cost-effective, software-defined wireless access platform (for GSM BTS and other standards), aimed to improve connectivity in remote areas of the world. See here for more information about OpenCellular.

OsmoCon 2017 updates: Schedule, Travel Grants

Added by laforge about 1 year ago

OsmoCon 2017 updates

There are some updates related to OsmoCon2017, the first Osmocom Conference, held on April 21st, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.

Summary

Summary (for those too busy to read the full post):
  • Schedule of talks has been released
  • Travel Grants available for participants who are otherwise unable to travel to Berlin
  • Social Event details available, including menu
  • April 21st is approaching fast, make sure you get your Ticket in time. Limited number of seats available.

Details

Schedule has been release

The list of talks with their abstracts has been on the website for quite some time, but now we actually have put together a schedule based on those talks.

Please see OsmoCon2017 for the schedule.

As you can see, the day is fully packed with talks about Osmocom cellular infrastructure projects. We had to cut some talk slots short (30min instead of 45min), but I'm confident that it is good to cover a wider range of topics, while at the same time avoiding fragmenting the audience with multiple tracks.

Travel Grants

We are happy to announce that we have received donations to permit for providing travel grants!

This means that any attendee who is otherwise not able to cover their travel to OsmoCon 2017 (e.g. because their interest in Osmocom is not related to their work, or because their employer doesn't pay the travel expenses) can now apply for such a travel grant.

For more details see OsmoCon2017_TravelGrants and/or contact .

Social Event

Tech Talks are nice and fine, but what many people enjoy even more at conferences is the informal networking combined with good food. For this, we have the social event at night, which is open to all attendees.

See more details about it at OsmoCon2017_SocialEvent.

    (1-6/6)
