CeBIT 2012: Call for projects
Open source projects can now apply for free booth space at next year's CeBIT trade show, which will take place from 6 to 10 March 2012 on the world's largest fairground in Hannover, Germany. For the fourth year in a row, open source will have a presence at the event, with various organisations and projects from around the world represented in Hall 2.
Projects have until 18 December 2011 to submit their applications for a free booth. Those selected will be required to present their project, including its future goals, to attendees, and the booth must be set up and manned throughout the show. Winning projects will be selected by an international jury.
CeBIT – an acronym for "Centrum der Büro- und Informationstechnik", which means "Centre of Office and Information technology" – has been held each spring since 1986. It's the world's largest trade fair showcasing the latest in information technology (IT) products and solutions from thousands of companies from all around the world.
The CeBIT 2012 Call for Projects is sponsored by Linux New Media AG and the Deutsche Messe, which runs the CeBIT event.
