On Wednesday I attended a session named dimdim: The World's Free Web Conference by Prakash Khot and DD Ganguly, which showed off an alpha of a fully open source web conferencing platform that looks very promising. The clients use a combination of html, ajax and flash, and the server runs on standard open source software, with a centralized management admin interface built in.

While the application looks very full-featured, there are still a number of things to be worked out on the platform, and it's not ready for prime-time as of yet. They're offering an alpha trial on their servers right now, and will be releasing the server-hosted alpha in September. They expect to have a full open source release by the end of the year.
