Part of the IFIP — The International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT, volume 234)


The International Conference on Open Source Systems owes its success to the increasing desire of researchers and academicians to engage in open conversation and sharing with the open source community regarding its’motivations, products, processes and data. This diverse representation of the growing practical and academic interest in Open Source Systems and its impact on the software engineering community is represented in the five workshops that accompany this year’s conference. OSS 2007 welcomes these workshops as participants engage, in an informal setting, driven by fundamental academic interests, or by more applied industrial or commercial interests to discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas, and to develop a community in the field of Open Source Software and/or Systems.
