Looking forward to your submissions,

Call For Papers:
 FREENIX is the forum on free and open source software. We are looking

excellent showcase for the latest developments in and interesting
applications of free and open source software. Any project with a focus

online is a good candidate for a FREENIX submission. (Submissions
focusing on proprietary software will not be accepted.) Projects that,
while not yet 100% finished, anticipate release in the near term are
also good candidates for FREENIX. Submission of any sort of free and
open source software-related work is encouraged, including:

 - Project reports
   - Academic studies and relevant theory
   - Usage and development experiences, both successful and unsuccessful

The emphasis of a FREENIX submission should be on clearly communicating
important and technically interesting software ideas to a broad
