(apologies for cross-post)


Registration for the Open Source Summit v3.0: Communities Meeting is now
open! This event grows out of the past two years of success. The first
Open Source Summit <http://www.nasa.gov/open/source/> was held at NASA's
Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA and focused specifically on
open source policies. Last year, OSS <http://open.nasa.gov/summit/>
[full schedule] 
moved to the University of Maryland in College Park and broadened the
discussion to 
include all agencies, including NASA, the State Dept, and the VA on the
planning team.

This year's Open Source Summit will explain how to build, engage with, and
open source communities -- and when we say open source, we don't just mean
we also mean hardware and data.

If you are a federal civil servant that needs to build or engage with an
open source 
community, you should plan on attending.

Be warned however: this is not your average event! The multi-agency
planning team is 
tasked with ensuring that the event provides substantive benefit to
federal agency personnel,
and the format is uniquely designed to deliver not just abstract content
from subject matter
experts (of course we have those), but also the opportunity to see this
knowledge applied to
a specific case study, and then to learn how to apply it to your specific
In addition, we will collate the results of the discussions during the
event and making them
available afterwards so that other may learn from the shared experiences
and wisdom of their peers.

Also, fyi - the registration numbers are unlimited for government
employees, but limited t
o 70 for non-govies. We have a total registration limit of 200. Please use
the #ossdc hashtag

if you want to have conversations on Twitter about the meeting.

Thanks and I look forward to your registrations and interest! If you have
any questions,

please don't hesitate to ask either by replying to this email, contacting
me or anyone else
on the Planning Team directly, or by sending us a Tweet!
