Travel Grants for Open Source Conference

Organizers of large-scale international open source conferences might not cover the costs of transportation and accommodation. These necessary expenses could become a financial burden on young students. Therefore, we provide travel grants for students who are willing to submit their papers to international conferences and share their findings and experience with both global and local open source community.

Civil Society Cyber Shield (under OCF International Program)

Organizer: Open Culture Foundation
Citizen groups tend to engage in sensitive issues and thus become the target of cyber attack. But at the same time, they usually lack the resources to defend themselves. In this case, their work can be threatened by network monitoring, cyber attack, network blockade, network interruption, and Internet censorship. Taiwan has always been famous for its active information security community and civil society. Therefore, Civil Society Cyber Shield hopes to combine these two specialties of Taiwan and serve as the connection between technology experts and citizens. By connecting these two groups of people, we can improve the information security of citizen groups.
