The first Free and Open Source Conference ("FrOSCon") [1] takes place on June, 
24th and 25th 2006 in Sankt Augustin, near Bonn, Germany.
Organized by a commited team, it aims to become a significant event for free 
software in the Rhineland. The conference is hosted by the faculty of 
Computer Science [2] of the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg 
[3] in collaboration with the student body and the Linux/Unix User Group 
Sankt Augustin [4].
 In a Call for Papers [5], the organizers ask for submission of contributions. 
A broad variety of topics concerning free and open source software is 
desired. Particularly welcome are contributions about programming languages, 
free software on the desktop, security, systems administration and networks. 
Aspects of free software in busincess and industry are also a focus of the 
 Contributions can be submitted in English or German and should summarize the 
intended talk concisely and succinctly; talks should range from 45 to 60 
minutes in length. Deadline for submission is March, 15th 2006.
 FrOSCon will offer Developer Rooms (just like FOSDEM [6] does) to Open Source 
projects. These projects can use the rooms to organize developer meetings as 
well sub-conferences dedicated to their project. Projects that have already 
registered a room or are interesting in doing so include: Gentoo Linux [7], 
GNOME [8], Mozilla [9], [10], OpenWRT [11], PHP [12], and 
Wikipedia [13].
