Clear your calendars for the last weekend of March 2017! Registration for LibrePlanet is now open. The conference will be held March 25-26, 2017, in the Boston area.
Last year, over 350 people participated in LibrePlanet, traveling from 11 countries and 28 U.S. states. And guess what? Students and FSF members attend LibrePlanet gratis. Not a member? Join today to register gratis, or register at our non-member rate.
This year’s theme is “The Roots of Freedom.” Some talks at this year’s conference will look back at the historical “roots” of the free software movement, including the Four Freedoms, the GNU General Public License and copyleft, and the focus on strong security and privacy protections. Others will look at the movement’s strong, foundational “roots” — and the exciting developments that grow from them in education, business, activism, and the arts.
