Events: Santa Clara U To Host Open Source Symposium

Santa Clara University in California next week will host a symposium on open-source software. Titled "Virtues and Vices of Open Source Software," the symposium will focus on issues surrounding commercial and open-source software development.

Speakers at the event include Eben Moglen, general counsel for the Software Freedom Law Center, an outspoken proponent of open-source software and a man who has spoken openly against commercial software in education, notably in the context of the Blackboard patent dispute. Other speakers include Eric Goldman, director of the High Tech Law Institute and a professor and Santa Clara University, and Geoffrey C. Bowker, executive director of the Center for Science, Technology, and Society at Santa Clara University.

The symposium will be held March 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. at the Williman Room in the Benson Center at Santa Clara University. For reservations to the free event, contact Sherrill Dale at sdale@scu.edu.
