Malaysian Government Open Source Software Conference 2009

Malaysian Government Open Source Software Conference 2009

Dear all,

MAMPU is preparing to stage its premier annual OSS conference, “The Malaysian Government Open Source Software Conference” (MyGOSSCON 2009). The conference is planned to be officiated by Y.Bhg Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon and held from 4th to 6th November 2009 at Putrajaya International Convention Centre. Please visit http://mygosscon.oscc.org.my for announcements in the coming weeks and months as the conference details become finalised.


To showcase the benefits of Open Source Software (OSS). To exhort and hasten further OSS deployment and development to bring about the transformation of the entire ICT Industry in support of the Malaysian Public Sector OSS Master Plan.

Who should attend

While MyGOSSCON 2009 is directed primarily at Government of Malaysia (GOM) agencies, attendance is open to participants from outside the Public Sector.

The conference also provides an excellent forum for participants to hear firsthand from industry experts and to interact with their peers. And not to be overlooked will be the extensive networking opportunities for CIOs & IT Directors, as well as management, planning and legal staff.

Conference Theme

This year's conference theme, “Leveraging OSS To Ride The Economic Wave” is especially pertinent at a time of global economic uncertainty. MyGOSSCON 2009 will re-emphasise GOM's desired direction for ICT development in the Public and Private Sectors.
