About the talk:

CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, updated the CERN Open Hardware Licence (cern.ch/cernhol) this year. This new version maintains the original goal of providing a sound legal basis for the sharing of hardware designs, while bringing in numerous improvements.

Javier is one the authors of the licence. He will introduce licensing, open-source and the challenges related to licensing of open-source hardware designs, along with the solutions provided by version 2 of the CERN OHL.


About the speaker:

Javier is an electronics engineer and a physicist leading the Hardware and Timing section in CERN’s Accelerator Controls Group. He is the initiator of the Open Hardware Repository (ohwr.org) and co-author of the CERN Open Hardware Licence. At CERN, he specialises in timing systems, and he leads the White Rabbit project, an extension of IEEE-1588 which allows sub-nanosecond synchronisation in highly-distributed controls and data acquisition systems. He also enjoys outreach activities such as guiding visitors at CERN, teaching groups of students or telling others about Open (Science | Data | Access | Software | Hardware).
