CfP: FLOSSIE 2012, 25/26 May at QMUL, East London, UK

Flossie 2012 is a free, two-day event for women who work with, or are interested in, Software Libre/FOSS as developers or in Open Data, Open Knowledge, Digital Arts, Social Innovation, Research and Education.

Flossie is an independent network of women practitioners that has its roots in social innovation movements as well as arts, technology and academia. Whether you code, tinker or want to explore alternatives to 'big-tech' corporations, all women are welcome.

The first day will mix micro-talks with birds of a feather sessions about the work we do. On the second day there will be more structured workshops and discussions for both experienced practitioners and women new to FLOSS to make contact and skillshare.

We invite proposals for talks, workshops and Birds of a Feather sessions
