NCOSS - 2009 is being conceived of as a forum to bring together the various
groups working on developing Open Source Applications catering to specific
domains in the ICT world, including education, health, accessibility,
localisation, e-commerce, disaster management, expert systems, machine
learning, etc. A number of high quality software solutions are available in
many of these areas, for example, SugarCRM, Koha, Drupal, Moodle, Sahana,
CollabCAD, etc. Work on these systems require a combination of domain
knowledge and development expertise. Much of the public awareness in open
source is focussed on desktop, operating system and general productivity
tools. With this background, NCOSS-09 has chosen to focus on the layer above
this, bringing together groups working on various application domains.

The conference will present experiences in deploying FOSS applications,
comparative studies among competing software solutions, efforts in adapting
and localising FOSS applications, development of new applications, etc. The
conference will consist of the following:

   - Invited talks by experts from India and abroad

   - Presentation of contributed papers selected based on refereeing by a
   panel of referees

   - Exhibition by industry and academia

   - Pre conference Tutorials (on May 24th )

   - Panel discussion

 Papers are invited on the topics listed below. All papers will be subject
