MIE2006 - free/libre/open source group launch

A workshop held at MIE2006 on 28 August saw the formal launch of the EFMI libre/free and open source software Working Group. The formation of the WG had been previously agreed by the EFMI Council.

About 15 people attended the workshop, although sveveral others who had been unable to attend also expressed interest. Co-chairs Peter Murray and Karl Oyri lead discussions of the nature, format, aims and objectives of the WG. Further information will be made available in due course, and an invitation issued to others interested in joining the group. It will aim to work with other similar groups, but at the same time address and provide a particular European focus.
