LibrePlanet is an annual conference for free software enthusiasts, co-produced by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and the Student Information Processing Board at MIT (SIPB). LibrePlanet brings together software developers, policy experts, activists and computer users to learn skills, share accomplishments and face challenges to software freedom. Newcomers are always welcome, and LibrePlanet 2015 will feature programming for all ages and experience levels. FSF members and students attend LibrePlanet gratis.
This year, the theme of LibrePlanet is “Free Software Everywhere.”
Talks at this year’s conference will touch on the many places and ways that free software is used around the world, as well as ways to make free software ubiquitous. At LibrePlanet 2015, we’re once again teaming up with the Student Information Processing Board at MIT (SIPB), and together we’re taking software freedom around the world, to outer space, and through all kinds of industries, governments, organizations, fields of study, and communities.
We’re excited to feature a keynote address by Karen Sandler, executive director of the Software Freedom Law Center. The conference will also feature workshops in using free programs, talks and discussion panels with free software luminaries, plentiful networking opportunities, and a pre-conference social gathering.
If you’re interested in the role of technology in struggles for justice, community, and freedom, then you will find a lot to be excited about at LibrePlanet. Join us at LibrePlanet 2015: Free Software Everywhere!
Hope to see you at LibrePlanet!
