Welcome to IEEE ICOSST 2020

Open-Source Software (OSS) is an established cross-disciplinary paradigm for distributed enterprise computing and e-Government. It is helping organizations both public and private to keep control on the cost of development and deployment. OSS has not only changed the way software applications are architected, deployed, and consumed but also they are engineered to provide large distributed cross-platforms and frameworks.
