OSCAL (Open Source Conference Albania) is the first annual conference in Albania organized to promote software freedom, open source software, free culture and open knowledge, a global movement that originally started more than 25 years ago.

The Conference will take place at 13 & 14 May 2017 in Tirana and will gather free libre open source technology users, developers, academics, governmental agencies and people who share the idea that software should be free and open for the local community and governments to develop and customize to its needs; that knowledge is a communal property and free and open to everyone.Our mission is educating Albanian youth, and not only, on Free and Open Source Software, its ideology and the great community behind it.

OSCAL: we are creating an open source ecosystem, and we want you to be part of the change!
