It’s that time of year again. Following on from the FOSSi Foundation’s Latch-Up and WOSH events, ORConf is now less than 3 months away and if you haven’t heard, we’re hosting it in beautiful Bordeaux, France over the weekend of September 27 to 29.

ORConf is in its 8th year of bringing the open source silicon community together for a weekend of presentations, ideas and discussions. We hope many of our fine past attendees will make the trip to France to join us again for what should be another fantastic event.

If you plan on coming along then please register here.

If you are joining us in a professional capacity, please consider purchasing a professional ticket here.

Presentation submissions are now open. We welcome everyone to come and tell us about your project, endeavour or your open source silicon use story. Presentation submissions may be made here

The call for sponsors goes out again this year - ORConf isn’t free to run and we rely on the generous support of companies and individuals to help put the event on. At this stage all sponsorship opportunities are available - so if you’d like to help the FOSSi Foundation fund the event, and get a great bit of recognition for it, then please get in touch with us via replying to this email or via the links on

So save the date and join us in Bordeaux for what will be another fantastic year of presentations and time spent face to face with the rest of the open source silicon community.
