OPENSYM 2015, THE 11TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON OPEN COLLABORATION

August 19-21, 2015 | San Francisco, California, U.S.A.

http://opensym.org/os2015 | ACM SIWEB and ACM SIGSOFT supported



ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The 11th International Symposium on Open Collaboration (OpenSym 2015) is the 
premier conference on open collaboration research and practice, including 
free/libre/open source software, open data, IT-driven open innovation 
research, wikis and related open collaborative media, and Wikipedia and 
related Wikimedia projects.

OpenSym brings together the different strands of open collaboration research 
and practice, seeking to create synergies and inspire new collaborations 
between computer science and information systems researchers, social 
scientists, legal scholars, and everyone interested in understanding open 
collaboration and how it is changing the world.

OpenSym 2015 will be held in San Francisco, California, on *August 19-21, 2015*.

This is the general call for papers and includes the

- research track call for submissions,
- industry and community track call for submissions, and
- doctoral symposium call for submissions.

OpenSym is held in-cooperation with ACM SIGWEB and ACM SIGSOFT. As in previous 
years, the conference proceedings will be archived in the ACM digital library.



RESEARCH TRACK CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The conference provides the following peer-reviewed research tracks.

- Free/libre/open source software research, chaired by Carlos Jensen of Oregon 
State University and Gregorio Robles of Universidad Rey Juan Carlos. This 
track seeks papers on all aspects of FLOSS. For detailed topics and the 
research track committee please see http://wp.me/Pezfy-IU.

- IT-driven open innovation research, chaired by Ann Majchrzak of University 
of Southern California and Arvind Malhotra of University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill. This track is devoted to research on the process of expanding 
research and development activities beyond the boundaries of single company 
structures. For detailed topics and the research track committee please see 
http://wp.me/Pezfy-J3.
Open data research, chaired by Carl Lagoze of University of Michigan. This 
track contributes to the increasing awareness on Open Data in research. For 
detailed topics and the research track committee please see http://wp.me/Pezfy-J5.

- Wikis and open collaboration research, chaired by Kevin Crowston of Syracuse 
University. This track is dedicated to the science and application of wikis 
and open collaboration technology outside of the context of Wikipedia. For 
detailed topics and the research track committee please see http://wp.me/Pezfy-J7.

- Wikipedia and related projects research, chaired by Claudia Müller-Birn of 
Freie Universität Berlin and Aaron Shaw of Northwestern University. This track 
addresses research specifically on Wikipedia and associated projects. For 
detailed topics and the research track committee please see http://wp.me/Pezfy-J9.

Research papers present integrative reviews or original reports of substantive 
new work: theoretical, empirical, and/or in the design, development and/or 
deployment of novel concepts, systems, and mechanisms. Research papers will be 
reviewed by a research track program committee to meet rigorous academic 
standards of publication. Papers will be reviewed for relevance, conceptual 
quality, innovation and clarity of presentation.

Authors can submit full papers (5-10 pages), short papers (2-4 pages), and 
research posters (1-2 pages). For more details on paper types please see 
http://wp.me/Pezfy-Je.

Submission deadline for all research contributions is *March 29th, 2015*.

Authors submit through EasyChair at 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opensym2015. Submissions and final 
contributions must follow the ACM SIG Proceedings template found at 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates.

OpenSym seeks to accommodate the needs of the different research disciplines 
it draws on. Authors whose submissions have been accepted for presentation at 
the conference have a choice of having

- their paper become part of the official proceedings, archived in the ACM 
Digital Library, or having
- only a short abstract included in the proceedings (rather than the full 
submitted paper) in order to preserve future publication possibilities.



DOCTORAL SYMPOSIUM CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

OpenSym seeks to explore the synergies between all strands of open 
collaboration research. Thus, we will have a doctoral symposium, in which 
Ph.D. students from different disciplines can present their work and receive 
feedback from senior faculty and their peers.

Submission deadline for doctoral symposium position papers is *May 3rd, 2015*.

Authors submit through EasyChair at 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opensym2015. Submissions and final 
contributions must follow the ACM SIG Proceedings template found at 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates.

More information is available at http://wp.me/Pezfy-Jh.



INDUSTRY AND COMMUNITY TRACK CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

OpenSym is also seeking submissions for experience reports (full and short), 
tutorials, workshops, panels, non-research posters, and demos. Such work 
accepted for presentation or performance at the conference is considered part 
of the industry and community track. It will be put into the proceedings in an 
industry and community track section; authors can opt-out of the publication, 
as with research papers, but will still have to provide an abstract (less than 
one page) for the proceedings.

Submission deadline for industry and community track papers is *April 19, 2015*.

Authors submit through EasyChair at 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=opensym2015. Submissions and final 
contributions must follow the ACM SIG Proceedings template found at 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates.

THE OPENSYM CONFERENCE EXPERIENCE

OpenSym 2015 will be held in San Francisco, California, on August 19-21, 2015. 
Research, industry, and community presentations and performances will be 
accompanied by keynotes, invited speakers, and a social program in one of the 
most vibrant cities on this planet.

The open space track is a key ingredient of the event that distinguishes 
OpenSym from other conferences. It is an integral part of the program that 
makes it easy to talk to other researchers and practitioners and to stretch 
your imagination and conversations beyond the limits of your own 
sub-discipline, exposing you to the full breadth of open collaboration 
research. The open space track is entirely participant-organized, is open for 
everyone, and requires no submission or review.

The general chair of the conference is Dirk Riehle of Friedrich-Alexander 
University Erlangen-Nürnberg. Feel free to contact us with any questions you 
might have at info at opensym.org.
