Registration is now open for LibrePlanet 2012! For those of you who've
been to one of our LibrePlanet conferences before, you know you can
expect some of the best people in the free software community in a
fantastic community setting. This year's conference is going to be
larger than ever! We have much more space than in previous years, and
have made many improvements in response to the feedback you've given us
in the past.
LibrePlanet 2012 -- March 24th/25th at the University of
Don't delay, registration is now open, and as always, FSF associate
members can attend for no extra charge as part of their membership
-- excluding food and t-shirt costs.
Registration closes on March 7th. Anyone who wants to come after
that can come on the day and pay, but we can't guarantee a shirt
will be available and there might not be any lunch for you.
We have all the information you need about hotels, getting to Boston
and getting around Boston on the LibrePlanet wiki. There's also a
mailing list for coordinating room sharing and carpooling.
The conference so far...
Everything starts at 9am, on Saturday March 24th at the University
of Massachusetts, Boston -- a stunning campus on the waterfront,
with glorious views of the Massachusetts Bay.
We're going to have a dedicated space on Saturday afternoon for
Lightning Talks -- these will be limited to people who aren't
otherwise speaking at the conference, so if you fancy talking for a
few minutes about absolutely anything related to our community, this
is your opportunity.
If you're looking to get some work done while you're here, we have a
dedicated space for collaboration and hacking on projects -- the
ideal place to hang out with your laptop and relax between talks.
We're still putting the finishing touches to the schedule, but you'll be
pleased to see the following speakers are already confirmed:
* Richard Stallman
* Eben Moglen (Freedom Box Foundation, Software Freedom Law Center)
* Karen Sandler (GNOME Foundation)
* Evan Prodromou (StatusNet, identi.ca)
* Matthew Garrett (Linux)
* Allison Chaiken
* Eben Upton (Raspberry Pi Foundation)
* Richard Fontana
* Bradley Kuhn
* Mike Linksvayer
* David Sugar
* ginger coons
* Chris Webber
All speakers will be listed on our website:
Food at LibrePlanet 2012
Lunch is available for a reasonable $10 on both days -- we have healthy
options for everyone. We all benefit from having everyone together at
lunchtime, so we've done our best to make food options as cheap as
possible. Breakfast and coffee/tea/soft drinks will also be provided on
The LibrePlanet 2012 t-shirt
We have a new shirt for this conference, incorporating the conference
logo, in stylish yellow print on a dark-grey shirt. We've also made it
easier to find staff at the conference -- we'll all be wearing
off-yellow shirts with black print, with the same design. If you want
one of these limited-edition yellow shirts, we're looking for a small
number of volunteers during the conference who'll also get one for each
day they volunteer.
But that's not all
For those of you in town a day early, there's a small open house at the
Free Software Foundation office, so you can come meet the staff and the
volunteers working behind the scenes to make the conference into a
success. Come see where we work, and have your photo taken with the GNU
Project mascot! Details will be posted on the wiki.
If you're hanging around after the conference, we're also planning a
post-conference lunch at the office on Monday, a chance to reflect on
And with social events on Saturday and Sunday evening already up on the
wiki, there's plenty to do outside of the conference.
Looking forward to seeing you at the conference, and we hope you'll
bring a friend and introduce them to free software!
Matt, Jasimin, Donald, Brett, Josh, John, Peabo and Ward
