The open space will provide up to three lecture/workshop-rooms simultaneously, tables in the lobby for smaller and longer presentations and meetings and facilities for a proper hackathon, where you can join your forces in putting hands on keyboards.
You are encouraged to add your slot to this list, if you prepare some active participation in the open-space. See this list as an offer to all participants, you might use it for planning with other people of your team or in matter of finding those. (You may just link your project or get yourself a wiki-page here for more details.)

Lectures, Presentations, Discussions
- XMPP and oStatus: interfederation federation If you are curious about the differences between XMPP and HTTP federation and how they can be united, well... we hope to enlighten you. A couple of buddycloud folk will present a session on how XMPP can be made to federate with oStatus. This will be a talk and then a breakout into discussing different options, pros and cons of each approach.
- Scalability & Paranoia in a Decentralized Social Network by lynX - It is generally underestimated how different the challenge for a social network is compared to the web or a messaging technology. Both the web and messaging are fundamentally one-to-one technologies whereas social is a one-to-many or many-to-many thing. If the web seriously wants to get social and away from the silo architecture, it needs a multicast type of distribution backbone technology.
- SOCIETIES vision for the Federated Social Web by João Miguel Gonçalves - SOCIETIES is an European FP7 project in its early stages that envisions a fusion between the pervasive and the social. It aims to design and implement an open source privacy and trust enabled communication and service/resource sharing platform that can empower both users and developers. In this presentation the views of the project regarding the proliferation of user devices, sensors and actuators, identity management and privacy-enabled federation, and policy-based approaches to community sharing. We invite everyone to discuss and contribute.

- Demo of Project Danube - by Markus.. Some demonstrations of the various components of the project.
- A Federated Social Web for Peace - by Markus.. What happens if you work on Federated Social Web technologies for a while and then suddenly decide to sign up at a place which calls itself the European Peace University?
- Hackers Collider - advancing federation across platforms proposed by elf Pavlik I would like to invite developers working on various platforms to discuss the state of art for protocols support in various programming languages and platforms we work on. Let us see how much of interoperability already exists, what we would like to focus on developing in next months and how to support each other efforts. Please see workshop page for more details! notes: http://piratepad.net/77TeSA6wGL
- Ostatus Tutorial
- Next version of Ostatus
- W3C Community Groups & FSW & SWAT1
- buddycloud - There will be a bunch of buddycloud hackers at the conference. If you are curious about buddycloud channels or want to spin up channels on your domain come and have a chat.
- drupal - few drupal developers will come for the event, we will organize a meeting to make a roadmap for enabling federation features for drupal sites. Please also join Federated Social Web Drupal Group
Every project attending the conference, is invited to show itself at this point.
Project - Doing what, how and why? Website? People?
- buddycloud - buddycloud is building the tools that help power your own social network. The software is designed to be massively scaled, and has really nice social location sharing features. buddycloud is friendly, federated and all our code is opensource (https://github.com/buddycloud).
- MyProfile - User profile and Identity on the Web. MyProfile intends to provide a solution for managing the numerous accounts and profiles that users have on the Internet. Its main purpose is to provide a unified user account, or simply 'user profile', which as opposed to current 'silo' profiles, would really be under the user’s control and on a device controlled by the user.
- Libre Projects - a collection of free & open source web services and alternatives to proprietary platforms. The current focus is on easy-to-use and hosted services. Plans are to include more personalization features and more detailed information. Just as for users to find apps, it should be lowering the barrier for developers to check where help is needed.
- ownCloud - free and open source replacement for Dropbox, MobileMe and the like. We aim to keep the dependencies for installation low at PHP & MySQL/SQLite. We’re interested in both contributors (especially frontend/interaction) as well as providers interested in offering ownCloud as a service.
- La Distribution - La Distribution's mission is to distribute web applications. By helping users install and use web applications on their own space, we help them consolidate their online identity and then promote a decentralized web. We currently support web apps like Wordpress, Dokuwiki, Status.net, Firefox Sync ...
- Foafpress Small open-source PHP web application and presentation engine for your FOAF profile and other RDF data stored in files. It allows you to aggregate and publish data from multiple web sources via Linked Data.
- PyOfWave is an implementation of Google-designed federated communication platform, Wave. This project is in early stages of development and is already attracting interesting "subprojects" e.g. ARWave (Augmented Reality upon Wave) and a book discussion system (to be named).
- Unhosted - cross-origin ajax for storing user data outside of your web app
- PSYC - doing experiments in decentralized federated social networking since 2003.
- SMOB - distributed and privacy-aware semantic microblogging.

- Project Danube - Project Danube views the Federated Social Web and the Personal Data Ecosystem as two sides of the same coin, sharing the core idea to give users back control over their data and relationships. Project Danube also envisions decentralized communication systems to enable new forms of social interaction, going beyond the rather straightforward attempt to simply re-create in less evil ways what we already have today.
- Lorea - Lorea is a project to create secure social cybernetic systems, in which human networks will become simultaneusly represented on a virtual shared world. Its aim is to create a distributed and federated nodal organization of entities with no geophysical territory, interlacing their multiple relationships through binary codes and languages. ...Lorea word comes from the Basque language and means flower...
- webinos - Webinos is a “Service Platform” project under the EU FP7 ICT Programme aiming to deliver a federated web runtime that offers a common set of APIs to allow applications to easily access cross-user, cross-service, and cross-device functionality in an open yet secure manner. Within the project the sub-team working on social context aspires to design and implement a context awareness framework that will retrieve contextual data from user activities happening across connected devices ...
- PADGETS - is an ICT for Governance and Policy Modelling project under the FP7. The project aspires to allow policy makers to interact throught their Social Media accounts with citizens, trace their responsive activities and help them reach a decision based on citizens opinion. In the context of the project, our team is working to set up communication with Social Media and create a tracking system based on XMPP to organize activitiy feedback under certain discussions and to control user subscriptions.
- Sojolicious - A social plugin toolbox (in the early stages) for the Mojolicious Web Framework (Perl)
- di.me - di.me is an FP7 research project which aims at integrating local and remote data in the user's information sphere (desktop, mobile devices, online services and networks). The di.me userware will act as a single point of access to this information enabling the user to safely communicate personal data to others and keep track of personal digital footprints as well as provide intelligent suggestions/warnings in relation to data sharing.
- Social Stream - is a core for building social network websites. It is an engine for Ruby on Rails. It provides a robust and flexible core with social networking features and activity streams for building websites.
