COSCUP 2024 Early Bird Call for Proposals

Welcome to the Early Bird Call for Proposals of COSCUP 2024!
COSCUP Now offer early submission to better prepare our potential speakers to attend the 2024 COSCUP in person 😀


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:

Q1: Why Early Bird CFP?

We want to make our conference as inclusive as possible which means in order to serve people who don’t live in Taiwan to have enough time to prepare their travel plans to Taiwan and to encourage more international speakers to come visit us at COSCUP with their physical present.

Q2: Any differences between this CFP then the past one?

We normally have CFP at around end of April, but the "Early Bird CFP" is bring itself earlier than any other community tracks.

Q3: If I am in Taiwan can I still participate?

Yes, Please!

Q4: Which track will my proposal fall into?

We will match your topic with the proper track!

Q5: What are the differences between community track and mix track?

COSCUP is organized by different open source communities, hence the”Community Track” is organized by other non-COSCUP open source community, and “Mix Track” is organized by COSCUP, and the proposals are evaluated by our committee members.

Q6: How do we get inform on April 30th Early bird Call for Proposals deadline?

You will receive an email notification to know if your proposal has been accepted by COSCUP or not.

Q7: If I miss the early bird CFP deadline, can I still submit my talk later on?

Yes, later on we will have another regular CFP, you can still submit your talks before the deadline.

Q8: If I didn’t get accepted on Early Bird CFP, can I still submit my proposal later on this year before the regular CFP deadline?

If you didn’t get accepted on Early Bird CFP, we will keep your talks on regular CFP, when we start our regular CFP, you can edit your talks again and submit your talks before our CFP deadline.

  • FAQ
    Q2:和往年 CfP 有何差異?
    往年的 CfP 活動是與「社群軌」一起進行的綜合徵稿活動(四月底開始)。而此次的「Early Bird CfP 計畫」是早於綜合徵稿活動的計畫。
    一直以來 COSCUP 都會與其他開放社群進行合作。而「社群軌」會交由該社群來決定並安排議程。而「綜合軌」則是由 COSCUP 自行舉辦的自辦軌,將由 COSCUP 議程組所找的審稿委員來協助稿件審核。
    Q6:4 月 30 日是否一定會知道審核結果?
    我們會在 4 月 30 日前用 Email 方式來通知您稿件是否在此階段提前錄取。
    Q7:如果來不及參加「CfP - Early Bird」方案,之後是否還有機會?
