We have also extended the Call for Sessions (CfS) for another three weeks, until Wednesday, November 23, 2022, at 10:00 EST (15:00 UTC). This gives you the chance to make sure that you're a part of LibrePlanet 2023: Charting the Course.
- LibrePlanet 2023: Charting the Course will be held March 18-19, 2023
This year's LibrePlanet is already in its fifteenth edition. It is organized by the Free Software Foundation (FSF), in conjunction with the LibrePlanet committee, which consists of a team of excited volunteers, and we all look forward to hosting an outstanding celebration of fifteen years of LibrePlanet. Jason Self, one of our committee members, describes LibrePlanet in an enthusiastic, forward-looking blog post as "a great way to recharge your free software batteries each year."
The theme of LibrePlanet 2023 is "Charting the Course." Submit a session, and, as Jason says, be "at the forefront of [...] determining the best course to take for the advancement of software freedom." You will have a marvelous audience to discuss with. We are looking forward to presenting a fun, interactive, and varied LibrePlanet schedule with a little bit of everything, so if you have a nice idea, we encourage you to submit your session regardless of your level of experience!
Need help preparing your talk proposal?
If you need advice or encouragement as you prepare your talk proposal, we're here to help! We will host one more #libreplanet IRC (Libera.Chat) LibrePlanet Call for Sessions office hours with FSF staff and LibrePlanet committee members. Join us on Thursday, November 10 from 13:00 to 14:00 EST (18:00 to 19:00 UTC)
FSF Award nominations still open until November 30
We are also still soliciting Free Software Award nominations. Show those community members and projects that you appreciate their vital work by nominating them for an award in one of three categories: the Award for the Advancement of Free Software, the Award for Projects of Social Benefit, or the Award for Outstanding New Free Software Contributor. Don't assume that someone else will nominate your chosen nominees -- the committee does take into account the amount of times a project or person is nominated.
