FOSS Compliance - Complex Made Simple

Free and Open Source Software(FOSS) Compliance is a concept that users of FOSS comply with the license terms when making use of FOSS. For a company or a big organization the process of complying FOSS license terms may contain many phases and aspects: policy making, training courses planning, review process discussing, FOSS committee organising, etc. Therefore, any topic related to this concept and the process is welcome. If you have a real case to share, even if it’s an unsuccessful one, we will be more than happy to see your submission.

Duration of each slot in this track is 30-60 min, except panel. You can plan how long you would like to present, and we will try to arrange it. But the duration of submitted talk could also be changed if needed.

This track will be presented either in English or Chinese. You can decide in which language you will present your talk.

Internet Governance and Digital Privacy / 網路治理與數位隱私

In last year, the spreading of fake news on SNS, Facebook Cambridge Analytica incident, the FCC Net Neutrality Repeal, and stronger online regulation from many Governments, all raising people’s awareness and requirement of better Internet Governance and stronger Digital Privacy protection.

European GDPR will take effect in May; many countries are requesting internet giants to control fake news; and people are asking Facebook to make its timeline algorithm transparent and enforce privacy, through #DeleteFacebook campaign.

Free and Open Source Movement is the base of free society, the goal is to prevent social progress from the limit of technology and legal, it could not bypass of the trend of strengthening Democracy and protect digital Human Rights online.

In the past, we had discussed Software Patent, Data Freedom, Censorship. This year, we want to focus on these topics around Digital Human Right, that may affecting, helping or blocking the FLOSS movements.

The submission can include one or multiple topics below and MUST relate to FLOSS. It can be talk, forum or workshop, length in 40 mins (regular session) or 10 mins (lightning talk).

近來社群網站的假新聞、FB 劍橋分析事件、美國退回網路中立規則、多國強化干預網路言論,令社會大眾掀起一波增進網路隱私、強化網路治理的訴求。在政府方面,歐盟自五月開始執行影響範圍遍及全球的 GDPR 規則,各國陸續要求網路巨擎管控虛假言論;在民間,各國民眾則透過 #DeleteFacebook,要求社群網站遏止假消息,並讓其演算法調控透明化。

在此風潮之下,FOSS 界也無法置身事外。自由軟體運動是自由社會的基石,其目的是想要解放科技對人們的限制,避免法律政策與專有技術妨礙社會進步。過去我們曾討論軟體專利、資料自由與大規模監控。在網路已經成為基本資源的時代,今年我們則將著眼於下列與數位人權的相關議題,討論其帶給自由軟體運動傳播與發展的助力與阻力。

投稿稿件可包含以下一或數項主題,內容務必與自由軟體運動相關。可採演講、座談、工作坊形式,40 分鐘(一般議程)或 10 分鐘(閃電講)長度。如有不清楚之處,歡迎來信詢問:

  • 網路治理 Internet Governance
  • 歐盟一般資料保護規範 GDPR
  • 網路隱私 Internet Privacy
  • 被遺忘權 Right To Be Forgotten
  • 資料落地 Data Localization
  • 資料可攜 Data Portability
  • 數位國界 Borders In Cyberspace
  • 網路中立性 Net Neutrality
  • 數位人權 Digital Rights
  • 演算法倫理 Algorithmic Ethics
  • 去中心化 Decentralised Internet
  • 設計著手保護隱私 Privacy by Design
  • 預設隱私保護 Privacy By Default
  • 公眾參與 Public participation
  • 開放標準 Open Standard

Let’s read the source code / 帶您讀源碼


In COSCUP, the most known event of F/OSS in Taiwan, do you think that “source code” is lesser shown, discussed than other topics?

Do you want to share something interesting in the source code of your own or contributed F/OSS projects?

Do you want to share amazing experiences about analyzing, tracing the source code?

Do you want to share the code iteration, refactoring experience of your own or contributed F/OSS projects, to attract people to start doing F/OSS contribution?

This year, we have a shiny new track “Let’s read the source code” which is calling for papers!

Welcome to share the following topics:

  • Discussion about workflow, architecture, code iteration, principle or algorithm at source code aspect of F/OSS projects
  • Experience about tracing or analyzing source code of F/OSS projects
  • Introduction of source code tracing tools (would be great if they are F/OSS)


您是否覺得在 COSCUP 這個臺灣的 F/OSS 年度盛會當中,主角之一 “source code” 反而佔不到什麼版面?大家都在談 Open Source,但是好像沒什麼人在意那個 “Source”?



您希望藉由分享自己參與的開源專案程式碼迭代歷程,吸引更多不知如何入門的潛在貢獻者加入 F/OSS 的行列?



  • 開放原始碼專案在「原始碼」層面的「流程運作」、「架構組成」、「迭代歷程」、「運作原理」、「關鍵程式碼」、「關鍵演算法」探討
  • 開放原始碼專案原始碼追蹤分析「心得經驗」分享
  • 開放原始碼專案原始碼追蹤分析「相關輔助工具」(←採用開源授權者為佳)的介紹

Make Technology Policies Open / 科技社群如何參與科技政策規劃? 你真的需要搞一個政黨出來嗎?

Governments are big and slow to change; tech communities are vibrant and swift to move. Normally the two don’t intersect. But as technologies move forward ever faster in the current era, governments are often outpaced. The resulting policies often lag behind, and this can have a huge impact on communities and the society. How can we change this?

This is a workshop for technologists interested in technology governance. Together we will review the current policy-making process, ask questions, and re-imagine a more open and responsible model for participation. Can we adapt open source collaboration models to co-design technology policies?

Any proposals on workshop design are welcomed.


這個 workshop 的主題是科技政策。我們將討論現行的政策規劃流程、提出問題,並實地演練可能的流程改善方式。有沒有可能把開源模式運用到政策制訂上,讓社群與政府一起設計我們的未來呢?

Open GIS

國際上開源 GIS 的發展相當蓬勃,資訊的傳播與人員交流相當密切,但在台灣相關倡議組織和活動能量相對較低,往往需要依靠國外資源挹注,像是英文資訊中文化。因此趁著每年台灣最大的開源大會 COSCUP,爭取更多 GIS 資訊曝光,各路 GIS 好手分享他們做的事情,增加台灣社群的活躍度。

Open GIS 徵求與開源 GIS 相關的講題,分為下列三個領域:
OpenStreetMap 開放街圖,或是群眾參與的地理繪製計畫相關議題
開源的 GIS 軟體,如 QGIS 介紹、教學操作
