The "Talk on Software & Systems" (TOSS) is a forum of meeting, stimulation and exchange between the reality of information technology in the large environment (IT "in the Large") with the world and the method & way of thinking of science and research in the form of the request of one-sided reporting without regard to academic conceits.
