> First Annual Conference of Open Source Content Management Systems
> On 21 and 22 March 2002 developers of content management systems from
> the world over will meet in Zurich for the First Open Source Content
> Management Systems Conference. All participants adhere to the open
> source spirit: the source code and therefore the results of
> their labor are available for free to anyone. Low costs and a large
> degree of vendor independence have lead to a growing share of open source
> software in the content management systems market.
> Six fully operable programs are already available on the
> market: Cofax (US), Midgard (Finland), MMBase (Netherlands), OpenCms
> (Germany), Wyona (Switzerland) and Zope (US). Some of these are used
> worldwide. On the first day of the conference, each of the six programs
> will be presented by their respective developers. On the second day, three
> frameworks that are used in conjunction with content management software
> will also be presented by their respective (co-)developers. These are Cocoon,
> Infozone and Axkit.
> The event is organized by the wyona.org Society. The
> society's goals are the dissemination of the Wyona CMS and the promotion of
> knowledge-sharing between developers of different open source content
> management systems.
> The conference will be held on 21 and 22 March 2002 at the
> Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. The conference fee
> is US$ 300; reduced fee for students. More information is available at
> http://conference.wyona.org or at phone +41-1-272 91 61.
> The conference will be mainly a developer's conference, but
> all others are very welcome as well.
