SAN FRANCISCO, February 3, 2022 -- FINOS, the Fintech Open Source Foundation and financial sector project of The Linux Foundation, and The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced the name change of its event dedicated to driving collaboration and innovation in financial services through open source software and standards from Open Source Strategy Forum to the Open Source in Finance Forum. The event started in 2017 under the auspices of FINOS prior to it joining the Linux Foundation in 2020 and has since then grown to become the flagship event for the fast growing open source movement in financial services and its unique challenges. The name is being changed to better reflect the focus of the event within the larger landscape of open source events produced by The Linux Foundation and its projects.
This year, Open Source in Finance Forum will take place in London, England on Wednesday, July 13, and in New York City, USA on Thursday, December 8. Both events will gather experts from financial services, technology and open source who will come together for thought-provoking insights and conversations, providing unique opportunities to hear from and engage with those who are leveraging open source software to solve industry challenges.
The Linux Foundation strongly values the need to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in open source, and a great place for that to begin is on a conference stage. We encourage those from all marginalized communities to submit to speak. We also welcome and encourage first-time speakers to submit. If you aren’t sure about your abstract or have any questions, please reach out to us.
Please contact The Linux Foundation for information on becoming an event sponsor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members of the press who would like to request a press pass to attend should contact Kristin O’Connell.
