The ESWC (e.V.) (Court Reg. Nr. 77 VR 1319) is a not for profit association devoted to providing educational opportunities to software developers and the (Micro-) ISV-Industry - concentrating on those, that actually employ the fair way of distribution, called Shareware, Trialware, Demo or differently. The ESWC e.V. organizes the European Software Conference. The purpose of the conference is to provide a gateway to facilitate sharing information to and for software developers and companies and organizations who provide products and services to software developers. This educational conference serves as a springboard to develop the relationships between developers, companies that distribute software products, and companies that provide services to software developers. We also organize the annual Epsilon Award. Epsilon is the fifth letter of the Greek alphabet and the Phoenician Word for sun derives from that root. An astronomer knows that there is a constellation in space called (Lambda)-Epsilon which we can see at the right hand side. So the Epsilon Award is given for a combination of Excellency, craftsmanship and visionary ability in your software design. These are characteristics of an outstanding programmer and a piece of true software art.
