FLOSS Education and Computational Thinking Workshop @ OSS 2016

Abstract : Over the past decade, FLOSS has become mainstream. It's the technological foundation for a huge percentage of software, including products and services from both startups and established companies, as well as the dominant approach for software development and deployment tools. More recently, FLOSS has become the preferred solution for a growing number of governments and non-profit organizations around the world. What was once a niche research area has similarly become mainstream; FLOSS-related research publications are now found across a variety of social, economic , and software-related publications and conferences. Likewise, open source software is increasingly discussed in connection with open innovation, open government , open data, and related areas. This growing popularity poses an interesting challenge for FLOSS research. While there remains a core set of topics specifically related to FLOSS, e.g., software licensing, many other topics, such as collaborative distributed development, have much broader applicability. Some researchers who previously submitted their work to FLOSS-related conferences and publications are now seeing many other opportunities to present their work, describing the open source aspects of their research in a broader, domain-focused context. In this panel, we hope to address not only the most likely future directions for FLOSS research, but also how FLOSS is related to other research fields and the broader context of modern society. The panelists bring a wide variety of academic and industrial experience with FLOSS and related subject areas.
