MABUHAY! (Long live!) and get ready for Asia Source 3!

If you are a F/OSS advocate, an enthusiast or end-user, a developer or
even a newbie who strongly believes in building capacities and
empowering humanity with the use of Free/Open Source Software, we look
forward to welcome you to Asia Source 3 to connect, cooperate, and
collaborate – the F/OSS way.

The International Open Source Network (IOSN) ASEAN+3 with support from
InWEnt Capacity Building International, Germany, ASEAN Foundation, and
Open Society Institute Information Program and co-organized by
Tactical Technology Collective and Aspiration bring ASIA SOURCE 3 to
the Philippines on 7 to 12 November 2009.

The third event of the Asia source camp series, two of which have been
held so far – in Bangalore, India in 2005 and Sukabumi, Indonesia in
2007 – the 6-day learn-and-share event will be held at the lush greens
and quiet cool environs of the YEN CENTER – home to the Headquarters
and Regional Center for Asia of the International Institute of Rural
Reconstruction (IIRR) – located in Silang, a landlocked municipality
south of Metro Manila, within the historic Province of Cavite.

In the tradition of source camps, Asia Source 3 will bring in
participants from various subregions of the Asian continent, who share
common goals of pursuing the Free/Open Source Software (F/OSS)
advocacy and its promotion and use among non-profit organizations,
small-to-medium enterprises and youth networks.

Asia Source 3 offers applicants to choose one among four (4)
F/OSS-themed track sessions:

ONE: Managing Your Information
TWO: Migrating to F/OSS
THREE: Broadcasting Your Information
FOUR: Joining the F/OSS Community / Using F/OSS Tools

Online application opens on 14 August 2009, Friday at 1200H (GMT+8).
Downloadable forms will be made available.

Please regularly visit the Asia Source site at for
updates and information.
