The OSRC team participated in an international conference and exhibition from 17-18 December 2007 at Marriott Hotel, Islamabad. Entitled “Frontiers of Information Technology”, it was organized by the COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT). Students presented their projects, foreign delegates presented research papers, and Brightspyre and Ikonami also displayed their stalls, among others.
The OSRC networked among the participants, promoting awareness about open source and the OSRC’s training, migration and awareness-raising activities. Its open source software training toolkits, PSEB’s CDs regarding its various projects, and the industrial automation software, known as GBMS, prepared for PSEB by AZM, generated considerable interest at the OSRC’s stall at the event.
