Call for Papers extended!

We have received so many great proposals already and would like to thank everyone for their enthusiasm. After receiving multiple inquiries about moving the deadline, we are happy to announce that we have decided to extend the Call for Papers until February 25th!

If you have an idea for a talk, workshop or discussion on a FOSS-related issue, e.g. vendor neutrality, community management, best leadership practices for open source projects, etc. we would love you to submit your abstract through this website by setting up your profile (more details on that as well as possible topics of interest here).

Important note: We do not accept product presentations or company marketing presentations. If your company is interested in cooperating or partnering with FOSS Backstage, please contact us via

If you have further questions or suggestions for the conference, please get in touch with us via
