FOSSMeet is an annual event on Free and Open Source Software, conducted at National Institute of Technology, Calicut. Started with a vision to create a culture of innovation, evolution and open standards, the meet intends to support the FOSS community and the dissemination of FOSS ideology through hands-on sessions, discussions and lectures. Nothing better to get you introduced to the world of FOSS.
FOSSMeet will feature workshops, talks and discussions on a wide range of topics by established speakers in the FOSS arena. The hands-on sessions will orient you not just to develop using FOSS, but contribute to the same as well. Most importantly, FOSSMeet is a chance to meet like-minded people :-)
FOSSMeet is a community conference intended for networking and collaboration in the developer community. We value the participation of each member of the FOSS community and want all attendees to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Accordingly, all attendees are expected to show respect and courtesy to other attendees throughout the conference and at all conference events. To make clear what is expected, all delegates/attendees, speakers, exhibitors, organizers and volunteers at the FOSSMeet event are required to conform to the following Code of Conduct. Organizers will enforce this code throughout the event.
FOSSMeet is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. All communication should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for FOSSMeet.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Exhibitors in the expo hall, sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment. Be careful in the words that you choose.
