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


The 1st International Workshop on Trust in Open Source Software (TOSS) focuses on one of the major factors in the adoption of software solutions: the trustworthiness of OSS, which has influenced the widespread adoption of OSS in industry. Software quality aspects have been investigated for a long time in the academia but the usage/production of OSS is creating new challenges and the points of view of the industry and the academia may differ, especially on the trustworthiness of OSS. The aim of the workshop is to open a communication channel between the industry and the academia focusing on this issue and promote a long lasting discussion on it. The workshop tries to identify the different points of views and the different approaches that can result in benefits for the software industry.
