“Open digital strategies: vision and roll-out” is the core theme of Open World Forum 2012. This 5th session, presented by the Systematic competitiveness cluster as lead organiser with assistance from the Forum Committee, is resolutely user-focused, featuring for the first time a track dedicated to IT services in France’s regions and local authorities, tackling open-source issues in the public-sector environment.

Open World Forum 2012: THINK, CODE, EXPERIMENT
As in 2011, Open World Forum is divided into three sections: THINK, CODE and EXPERIMENT.
· THINK: the original and main concept of Open World Forum comprises round-table discussions, talks and discussions organised in themes or “tracks”, primarily aimed at professionals in IT and the new technologies.
Please click here for further information about the 5 major themes for 2012: IT Managers and Information Systems, Business, Human and Legal, Communities, Research & Development.
· CODE: This section is dedicated to the open-source and source code development communities, whatever their language – the engine driving the digital economy.
· EXPERIMENT: A day aimed at the general public, showing how open source and openness impact our daily life in very concrete ways (i.e: Dualo, KidExperiment with Hackidemia, OpenStreetMap, Hold-Up Voxe.org …). This day is organised by the French business cluster for digital content, Cap Digital.
“The benefits of openness and transparency are evident in all areas – politics, business strategy, governance, innovation, technology – and of course source code, too, which is the lifeblood of our economy as it becomes more and more digital year on year. Open World Forum is the only place where all these forms of openness gather together, interact, enrich each other. This is what makes it a unique event and a key meeting place for all forward-looking decision-makers.” Patrice Bertrand, Chairman of Open World Forum 2012.
