I assume the information that is needed is to fill in the questionnaire 
of the congress. I'm not familiar with their vocabulary, but relevant 
options are probably either symposium or a workshop. Perhaps a "topical 
symposium", where the topic is free software. If the proposal is 
accepted by organizers, the next task would then be to try to get people 
(scientists mainly) submit papers to the symposium. The questionnaire 
seems not to expect very long descriptions, what's now in wiki is the 
right size I think.

I haven't been to IGC before and I haven't worked in the field but it 
does fall under my current job description. I'd be interested to 
co-convene the symposium.
