We look forward to seeing you there!
The Open Source Hardware Association invites submissions for the fourth annual Open Hardware Summit, to be held September 6, 2013 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The Open Hardware Summit is the world’s first comprehensive conference on open hardware; a venue to discuss and draw attention to the rapidly growing Open Source Hardware movement. The Open Hardware Summit is a venue to present, discuss, and learn about open hardware of all kinds. The summit examines open hardware and its relation to other issues, such as software, design, business, law, and education.
We are seeking proposals for talks, posters, and demos from individuals and groups working with open hardware and related areas. Submissions are due by JUNE 21, 2013. Please see the complete call for papers for additional details.
Following discussions about the Open Source and Open Source Hardware logos, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) and the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) have worked together to compose a co-existence agreement on behalf of their representative communities.
We are pleased to announce that the co-existence agreement has now been approved and signed by both organizations. This agreement means that each group separately has control of their respective logo and in particular that the Open Source Hardware community will be able to continue to use the Open Source Hardware logo.
As per the agreement, OSHWA will (in the near future) publish guidelines for the use of the OSHW logo, designed to promote its use in compliance with the Open Source Hardware Definition. Until then, if you are using the OSWH logo, please make sure that you are following the OSHW definition. And, to use the OSI logo, please refer to OSI’s trademark usage guidelines.
Working with other organizations is just one of the ways we serve the community. Through your membership support, both OSHWA (join now!) and OSI (join now!) hope to continue representing your needs.

Here are the conference badges at this year’s Open Hardware Summit— made of Lego.
You can read a bit more about how they were designed and built over at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. Fittingly, it’s an open (if simple) design, and the CAD files are available for download.
