COSCUP 2023 - Early Bird - Call for Proposals

COSCUP 2023 Early Bird Call for Proposals

Welcome to the Early Bird Call for Proposals of COSCUP 2023!

New this year, for the first time in COSCUP’s history, we are doing Early Bird Call for Proposals . By recognizing the international air travel is resumed, now have access to earlier submission to better prepare our potential speakers to attend the 2023 COSCUP.


COSCUP is an annual conference organized by the Taiwanese Open source community since 2006. COSCUP aims to provide a platform to connect Open Source coders, users and promoters, while promoting FLOSS within the annual conference. The conference is free to attend and all the staff are volunteers.

We had more than 2800 attendees last year, and we believe this year there will be more. It is the biggest open source gathering in Taiwan, and the attendees are mostly developers, along with some power users and FLOSS promoters and lovers. Here is an album of our previous events:
