This is a guest post from Shauna Gordon-McKeon, who spoke at LibrePlanet 2014 on behalf of OpenHatch.

LibrePlanet 2015's call for sessions is open for ten more days, until Sunday, November 2nd. Submit your proposal now! Email with questions about the call for sessions.

When the call for session proposals for LibrePlanet rolled around last year, I wasn't sure whether to submit. I hadn't spoken at many conferences before, and I wasn't sure whether the topic I wanted to speak on -- open science -- would be a good fit. But when I looked through the conference Web sites from previous years, I saw a lot of diverse topics and enthusiasm for welcoming new speakers.

So I applied, and a few months later the panel I organized spoke to a full room. I encourage you to submit a session proposal for LibrePlanet 2015!

LibrePlanet is a small, casual conference with a friendly atmosphere. That makes it a great place to speak for the first time, or to propose a new topic. If you have questions or would like advice about submitting a proposal, you can ask the FSF Campaigns Team at Hope to see you at LibrePlanet 2015!
