About ConferenceXP

ConferenceXP was conceived in 2001 by Microsoft Research and released under a shared source license.

In July 2007, Microsoft Research announced funding for the Center for Collaborative Technologies at the University of Washington to continue development and deployment support for ConferenceXP.

In December 2010, Microsoft and the University of Washington assigned rights to the The OuterCurve Foundation, and a new Apache Version 2.0 open-source license was applied. The University of Washington will continue to support the ConferenceXP source code repository, and will act as central point of contact for the community.
