LibrePlanet 2024: May 4 and 5, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Boston, MA
We have exciting news: we found a venue we think will be great for LibrePlanet: the Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT) at 550 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115, USA and we also have a new date!
LibrePlanet: Cultivating Community, will be held at the WIT on May 4 and 5, 2024.
Yes, May is indeed an unusual month for LibrePlanet, as the conference typically happens in March. However, we believe the date change will serve us well. There are already many free software events going on in March 2024, which is also around spring break; and that often stands in the way of our wish to bring more students to our events. Besides, Boston has always been a challenging city to find a location within a reasonable budget.
We really hope you can make it! The WIT is home to a School of Computing and Data Science, a School of Architecture & Design, a School of Engineering, a School of Management, and a School of Sciences & Humanities. We look forward to having LibrePlanet at this place of learning and are sure that the conference will benefit from it.

Support LibrePlanet by becoming an exhibitor or sponsor
LibrePlanet is organized by the FSF, a 501(c)(3) charity. The conference is made possible thanks to charitable sponsors and exhibitors who want to be at the juncture of ethical technology, a vibrant community, and the future generation of free software specialists. Thanks to conference sponsors, we can offer free admission to students, a welcoming event space, social activities, and refreshments for attendees. Support from generous sponsors also enables LibrePlanet to run on free software infrastructure, including livestreaming and session recordings. There's still time to apply to become a sponsor.
