COSCUP, the largest open-source community conference in Taiwan, was held on August 1st and 2nd at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. Although many international guests or speakers were unable to attend in person due to the pandemic, they did not miss the event and participated remotely. For example, the creator of Vue 3, Evan You (尤雨溪), shared the technical difficulties and design trade-offs involved in open-source projects remotely.

At the opening ceremony, Ant welcomed and thanked COSCUP volunteers, speakers, and the audience for their enthusiastic participation, as well as co-organizers Open Culture Foundation and National Taiwan University of Science and Technology’s Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering. Above all, Ant thanked the sponsors who gave COSCUP the strongest support: the 5G Office from DoIT MOEA, the Industrial Technology Research Institute, the Institute for Information Industry, Appier, Moxa, KKBOX, Oracle, and Google Cloud.


This year, COSCUP also adopted a multi-track agenda, with different themed tracks and multiple sessions running at the same time. The program included the most popular topics, such as 5G, mask map, as well as an exclusive agenda for open-source newcomers and designers. Audrey Tang, the Digital Minister of the Executive Yuan also reflected on the meaning of open-source with Chien-Hung Huang, the Director of the Kuandu Museum of Art. 



Former NCC Director Ting-Yi Zhan shares the opportunities of 5G and open source


The first main session began with the former NCC Director, Ting-Yi Zhan, sharing the opportunities for open source in 5G, how 5G will connect different sectors of industry, leading to more diverse and vertically integrated applications. According to Zhan, the industry is working on standards and technical specifications to define open interfaces between radios, hardware, and software, so that multiple vendors can be used to co-construct networks. Compliance with the 3GPP R16 standard, a completely open platform from the network core (5GC) to the access network will be an opportunity for open source and co-creation and development.

Over 1,200 people participated in COSCUP on the morning of the first day


For the first time this year, COSCUP offered free entry without registration, and there was a huge crowd in the morning. However, participants had to fill out an online “Health Declaration Form” before entering and must wear surgical masks throughout the whole session.
