About these proceedings


Open source software (free software) has emerged as a major field of scientific inquiry across a number of disciplines. When the concept of open source began to gain mindshare in the global business community, decision makers faced a challenge: to convert hype and potential into sustainable profit and viable business models.

This volume addresses this challenge through presenting some of the newest, extensively peer-reviewed research in the area.
