What you need to know for LibrePlanet 2016, wherever you are

by Georgia Young Contributions Published on Mar 15, 2016 04:52 PM
The free software movement is a global phenomenon, and we want the LibrePlanet conference to reflect that. That's why, wherever you are, you are invited to participate remotely by watching the livestream and participating in the discussion via chat.

This year's program is bursting with something for everyone in the free software movement, from inquisitive newcomers to hardcore developers.

Keynotes talks will include NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in conversation with the ACLU's Daniel Kahn Gillmor; Open Source Initiative board president Allison Randal; Free Software Foundation founder Richard Stallman; and Software Freedom Conservancy executive director Karen Sandler.

Another way to participate remotely is to join the conversation around the conference on the libreplanet-discuss mailing list. Subscribe now and dive in.

Advance registration is now closed, but walk-up registrations will be accepted at the conference. Students and FSF members enjoy gratis admission. Additionally, members enjoy a variety of other benefits and support free software year-round.

Finally, we'd like to express our excitement about working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Student Information Processing Board, our organizing partner for LibrePlanet 2016.

See you soon, in Cambridge or on the Web!
