GNU Hackers Meeting 2013: August 22-25 in Paris, France
We are happy to announce the seventh GNU Hackers Meeting, which will take place from August 22 to August 25 2013 in Paris, France.
The GNU Hackers Meetings are a friendly and informal venue to discuss technical, social and organizational issues concerning GNU and free software.
Following the success of the 2011 edition, we will be again generously hosted by IRILL (http://www.irill.org), the Center for Research and Innovation in Free Software. We have set up an official meeting page containing practical information at http://www.gnu.org/ghm/2013/paris/.
As we are still in the process of defining the program, we welcome your talk proposals. We are particularly interested in new GNU programs and recent developments in existing packages, plus any related topic. In our experience the audience tends to be technically competent, so feel free to propose very technical topics as well; we will try to schedule all such talks together in the same morning or afternoon session, for the public’s sake.
Registration is free of charge, but in case you want to contribute to the organization of future meetings, we are glad to accept a small donation.
The FSF has kindly set up a small fund to help finance (documented) travel expenses for GNU maintainers and contributors, past and present. In case you qualify and you need financial assistance to attend, please mention this fact in your registration e-mail, along with all the relevant details including the minimum amount that would permit you to attend the event, no later than June 24 2013.
You are welcome to join the public mailing list email@example.com (https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/ghm-discuss). Talk proposals and registration e-mails should also be directed to the public list firstname.lastname@example.org, or directly to Luca Saiu's personal address email@example.com.
