by Georgia Young Contributions Published on Oct 30, 2017 03:08 PM
The tenth annual LibrePlanet conference is happening March 24th-25th, 2018 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and lots of people have already submitted their proposals for talks and workshops -- but we are offering everyone a few extra days to get their submissions in!

You now have until November 9th, 2017 at 10:00 EST (15:00 UTC) to send us your idea for a great LibrePlanet session!

Even if you don't want to give a talk, general registration and exhibitor applications are now open, and we will start accepting volunteer applications soon.

LibrePlanet is an annual conference for free software enthusiasts and everyone who cares about the intersection of technology and social justice. For the past nine years, LibrePlanet has brought together free software developers, policy experts, activists, hackers, students, and people who are at the beginning of their free software journeys. LibrePlanet 2018 will feature programming for all ages and experience levels.
