Moving Automotive Software to an Open Source Development Model: Some Unexpected Challenges, Some Interesting Solutions - John Lehmann, Mentor Graphics

As Linux is used more and more in automobiles, the transition of the auto industry to an open source model of software development has steadily moved forward while occasionally encountering some unique challenges. A lot of these ""speed bumps"" were predictable, and others were completely unexpected. Automotive alliances like GENIVI have first identified and then addressed many of these concerns, and have taken steps to proactively enrich the open source community, while encouraging their member companies like Mentor Graphics, the car companies themselves and Tier One suppliers to build differentiated commercial solutions that are now appearing on the world's roads and highways. This session is intended for all who are interested in discovering, discussing and solving business issues and business-focused technical challenges around the move to common infrastructures in automotive software.

Open Source Governance Today - Where We Are and Where We Are Going - Shane Coughlan, Open Invention Network

This talk will explore developments in Open Source governance around the world over the last twelve months with a particular focus on the outcomes of recent events, meetings and discussions held in Europe, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. It will explain how Open Source is being managed in server, desktop, mobile and embedded products, and discusses how this knowledge will prove useful for future products in the automative market. It will put emphasis on how governance is broader than technical or legal concerns, and includes issues of business strategy.

This talk is intended for project leaders, legal experts and managers who want to understand copyright, trademark and patent challenges in the context of the commercial market. It will be delivered in accessible language by one of the most experienced figures in this area, based on his work supporting Linux and wider OSS technologies.

Open source compliance BKMs and WKMs - Andrew Wilson, Intel

My talk is a practical and candid look at corporate open source compliance. I cover both the BKMs (best known methods) and the WKMs (worst known methods) I have seen from companies over two decades of work in this field. The goal is to share with companies who may be new to free/open source development how to get good results and how to stay out of trouble. Audience is management, legal, project and engineering leads, software QA, and leaders of industry consortia such as GENIVI. This is not a deep dive on open source licensing, but some familiarity with basic software licensing is desirable.

Introducing the Binary Analysis Tool- Armijn Hemel, Tjaldur Software Governance Solutions

The Binary Analysis Tool is an Open Source framework for analysing arbitrary binary files, such as firmwares, flash dumps and executables. The Binary Analysis Tool has proven to be especially useful in situations where software is purchased from a third party in binary only form and it needs to be checked for presence of open source code before shipping the code out. In this talk I want to present the (scientific) backgrounds and history of the Binary Analysis Tool, highlight why this tool is needed, when and where it can be used (and when not), how it fits into a procurement and compliance process, as well as give an extensive demo of the Binary Analysis Tool in action.
