Join us at FOSSY this year, Thursday August 1st - Sunday August 4th at the Portland State University Smith Memorial Student Union. We're looking forward to convening another conference that shows the multiple facets of what it means to work with, advocate for, and build free software in community. Last year we had over 300 attendees from over 10 countries! There was an incredible diversity of community led tracks, covering FOSS for Education, Right to Repair, Worker-Owner Co-ops that write and use FOSS, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and FOSS, to name a few. This year we hope to see a return of some of the great tracks and ideas that inspired us and an introduction of new tracks. If you would like to host a track, please consider applying to our community track proposals. We will be hosting office hours at 19:00 UTC on Tuesdays and Thursdays on our XMPP/ IRC channel if you would like to chat with someone about your proposal.

Please help us make the event a success by sponsoring at one of our tree themed tiers (Giant Sequoia, Redwood, Douglas Fir) or by providing coffee, transit, or A/V. If you or your organization would like more information here is our sponsorship prospectus or you can contact us at for more information.

Come join us for what we hope will be a beautiful summer weekend in Portland, OR, packed with community led discussions about what the future of free software looks like. We can't wait to see you there, so mark your calendars!
