  • Openmobility is an annual conference for open mobile platforms, open source hardware, and this year also about DIY/Maker movement. We are crossing borders when this year’s conference takes place over the weekend of April 6 and 7, 2013 at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. Entry to the conference is, as usual, free.

    Our focus is on open source hardware systems like Raspberry Pi, Arduino clones, CuBox or PandaBoard and of cours Linux mobile phones and tablets. Here we focus on systems like Openmoko, MeeGo Harmattan, WebOs and QtMoko, but we also welcome presentations on Android, as long as they are focusing on open source.

    Other topics may include BlackBerry Cascades, Jolla Sailfish, Firefox OS and Ubuntu Phone. Often, we also see presentations connected to frameworks used on mobile devices, like Qt, EFL, oFono, and others.

    We are, of course, interested in other topics as well. In the past we have seen presentations that deal, for example, with the OpenStreetMap, the functionality of GSM, and mobile networks. We would also welcome presentations that look at devices like Microsoft Kinect, Open Source implementations of the GSM stack OsmocomBB, and projects connected to the 3D printer RepRap and 3D printing in general.
