Registration is now open for LibrePlanet 2015: "Free Software Everywhere," March 21-22, 2015 in Cambridge, MA.
This year, the theme of LibrePlanet is "Free Software Everywhere." Talks at this year's conference will touch on the many places and ways that free software is used around the world, as well as ways to make free software ubiquitous. At LibrePlanet 2015, we're once again teaming up with the Student Information Processing Board at MIT (SIPB), and together we're taking software freedom around the world, to outer space, and through all kinds of industries, governments, organizations, fields of study, and communities.

Need help getting to LibrePlanet?
Apply for a travel scholarship! We have a limited amount of funding to bring conference participants to LibrePlanet from all around the world. You can apply for a scholarship starting now -- the application deadline is November 30 at 23:59 UTC. Scholarship recipients will be notified in mid-December.
If you don't need a scholarship, you can help us ensure that LibrePlanet 2015 welcomes all people by making a contribution to the conference's scholarship fund now, or when you register for LibrePlanet. A donation of $50 covers one night in a shared Boston-area hotel room, but any amount helps.
The energy and inspiration is palpable at LibrePlanet. Whether it's rubbing elbows with a maintainer you admire, learning about a new tool that can help you with your work, or rolling up your sleeves for the struggle against proprietary software, I'm telling you, you want to be in Cambridge, MA on March 21-22, 2015 for this year's LibrePlanet.
