Email address *
19 & 20 May 2018 in Tirana, Albania
OSCAL | Open Source Conference Albania is the first annual international conference in Albania organized to promote software freedom, open source software, free culture and open knowledge. It is organized by Open Labs, a non governmental, not for profit organization, dedicated to promote openness, freedom, transparency and access by amplifying its voice as a community altogether.

Now, we are calling for proposals (CFP), we would like to invite developers, speakers and promoters from Albania, the region and overseas to submit proposals. The applicants for who want to pitch at OSCAL'18 must be aware that the topic MUST be related with open knowledge, open source software and/or hardware, software freedom or generally open culture. We accept talks and workshops (applicants are encouraged to bring their own laptops).

While we will most likely be having a working internet connection at the venue, please don't rely your session solely on the wifi if possible. In this way we can prevent unneeded technical disasters.

Almost all sessions will be held in English. Proposals should also be submitted in English. You are free to propose more than one session, in a separate submission.

OSCAL is organized by Open Labs Hackerspace, which relies on donations and sponsors to operate. If you want to support the conference, you can become a Patreon:

Confidential Note
We will not publish your email and mobile phone number without your consent!
At the moment, we cannot confirm that the travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by us, due to not all sponsors being yet confirmed. Please fill out the scholarship form if you need these expenses covered. By the moment we have secured funding the accepted applicants will be notified. Unfortunately, applicants that do not request sponsorship from our side need to be prioritised from the organizing committee.
