FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2016.
What we are looking for
Through FOSSMeet, we intend to get the attendees, mostly students, get started with the development and usage of free software. You may propose to conduct a lecture, demo, tutorial, workshop, discussion or panel at FOSSMeet. If the contents of your session is the ‘I am feeling lucky’ result of some Google search, there is low probability that it’ll be accepted. Same applies to proposals titled ‘The absolute beginner introduction to X’ and others on a similar line. On the other hand, if your talk is on some obscure, albeit important, free software project that will go over most students head, this might not be the best platform to deliver that talk. There are always exceptions and we leave that to your judgement. If our audience wants it, we’ll try our best to accommodate it. Of course, if you find people interested in your proposal, you can always call a BoF. We are all for BoF’s! :)
Take the above with a pinch of salt. They are no s̶t̶r̶i̶c̶t̶ ̶r̶u̶l̶e̶s̶, only guidelines. All your proposals are welcome and we celebrate every single one that we receive! :D Looking forward to see you folks here.
Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.

GNUKhata, a Professional quality free accounting software
Looking at GNUKhata from both ends
GNUKhata <gnukhata.in> is a free and open source accounting software with professional quality features.
This presentation will look at the said software from 2 aspects.
Firstly from the end-user’s point of view, we will see all the powerful and standards based feature set of the program and how organizations can gain by using it.
The other half will be a technical insight into the logic, how we have developed it and what is the further plan.
We will welcome contributors who wish to be a part of our family after this session.
Knowledge of using Ubuntu, or any other Linux distro, basic knowledge of client-server. knowledge of accounting will be more than welcome.
