在“后新冠时代”的第一年，我们将采用“烽火模式”，即在主会议后再在有意向的城市举办 After Party，将全球聚集而来“开源火种”在全国传递，以促进各个城市的开源文化传播和开源人交流。目前拟举办 After Party 的有北京、上海、成都等城市，如果您愿意参加 After Party 的开源人聚会与分享，也请在征集令中注明能够成行的时间与想去的城市。
In the first year of the "Post New Crown Era", we will implement the "Beacon Mode". This entails organising an After Party in cities of interest following the main conference, in order to share the "Open Source Spark" collected from all over the world and to facilitate the propagation of open source culture and the exchange of individuals involved in open source in each city across the country. We will adopt the "beacon model" by organizing an After Party in key cities following the main conference. This will enable the dissemination of the "open source flame" gathered worldwide throughout the country, thereby fostering the propagation of open source culture and facilitating the exchange of open source individuals in each city. Currently, the After Party for open source enthusiasts will be hosted in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, and additional cities. If interested in attending, please specify the desired date and location in the proposal submission.
