Abstract

Over the past few years, we have been hearing more from open source and community source projects and partner institutions about how this approach to software development will affect our institutions. This session will focus on addressing key issues and challenges facing campus decision makers about the role of open source and community source applications at academic institutions. Executive directors from five higher education open source and community source communities will respond to questions posed by members of the audience.
