Squire and Duvall have paper accepted for conference in Sweden

Dr. Megan Squire and Dr. Shannon Duvall have had a paper accepted at the Fifth International Conference on Open Source Systems (OSS2009), to be held June 2-6 in Skovde, Sweden. Their paper is entitled "Using FLOSS Project Metadata in the Undergraduate Classroom," and it outlines their efforts to use the large amounts of data available from public repositories of free, libre, and open source software (FLOSS) in their classrooms. Squire will present the paper in Sweden at the conference, where she will also serve as co-chair of the Fourth Workshop on Public Data About Software Development, held each year concurrently with the OSS2009 conference.
