Dear Ruben Safir,

Here at the Free Software Foundation, we've been planning for
LibrePlanet 2018, and guess what? It's the **tenth anniversary** of
this free software community conference, and it's happening March
24th-25th, 2018 in the Boston area!

The [call for sessions][0] is open now, until November 2nd,
2017. [General registration][1] and [exhibitor and sponsor registration][2] are
also open. Pre-order a [LibrePlanet 10th anniversary t-shirt][3] when you
register to attend!

[1]: https://my.fsf.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=71
[2]: https://libreplanet.org/2018/sponsors/
[3]: https://shop.fsf.org/tshirts-hoodies/libreplanet-2018

**Do you want to discuss or teach others about a topic relevant to the
free software community? You've got until Thursday, November 2nd,
2017 at 10:00 EDT (14:00 UTC) to [submit your session proposals][0].**

[LibrePlanet][4] is an annual conference for free software enthusiasts
and everyone who cares about the intersection of technology and social
justice. For the past nine years, LibrePlanet has brought together
free software developers, policy experts, activists, hackers,
students, and people who are at the beginning of their free software
journeys. LibrePlanet 2018 will feature programming for all ages and
experience levels.

[4]: https://www.libreplanet.org/2018

If you're new to the community or to the LibrePlanet conference, check
out [last year's conference site][5] and [session videos][6],
including the opening keynote, a look at the [21st century
techno-surveillance state by Kade Crockford of the Massachusetts
chapter of the ACLU][7].

#### What kinds of sessions are we looking for?

Each year, LibrePlanet offers both technical talks and sessions
examining the intersection of free software and activism, culture, and
current events. Here are a few examples of talks or sessions you might
propose:

* An examination of how free software can aid in an aspect of life that is important to you, like education, medicine, social movements, or community organizing

* A workshop (for beginners or experienced users) on how to use a free software program or free hardware project

* A project sprint, where new and current contributors to a free software project can meet and work together on an aspect of the project

* An introduction to free software licensing, copyleft, or a deep dive into a current legal issue

* An update on your free software project

Check out [talk recordings from LibrePlanet 2017][6] for more ideas.

LibrePlanet's 10th anniversary theme is "Freedom. Embedded."
Embedded systems are everywhere, in cars, digital watches,
traffic lights, and even within our bodies. Proprietary software
is everywhere, its sinister aspects woven throughout the devices
permeating our lives. We've come to expect that our phones
monitor our activity and share that data with big companies, and
that governments enforce digital restrictions management (DRM).

In a society reliant on embedded systems, how do we defend computer
user freedom? How do we insist on copylefted code, protect ourselves
against government and corporate surveillance, and move toward a freer
world? For many people, digital freedom seems like a pipe dream. We
change the narrative and make free software the norm, instead of
walled gardens, denial of the right to repair, and DRM.

The FSF is committed to increasing participation by people belonging
to groups traditionally underrepresented at free software conferences,
including women, people of color, and transgender and nonbinary
people. If you are comfortable sharing demographic information on the
proposal form, please do. Your proposal will not be judged negatively
should you choose to omit information about your identity.

The LibrePlanet conference also has a [safe space policy][8], because
we want everyone who attends to feel comfortable, cared for, and able
to enjoy the conference without worrying about harassment. The policy
applies to all conference sessions, so keep that in mind when you
write your proposal.

[8]: https://libreplanet.org/2018/safe-space-policy/

We will hold IRC office hours in the #libreplanet channel on
irc.freenode.org so you can ask questions about the call for
sessions and get feedback on your proposal before you submit -- we
will announce hours and dates for these feedback sessions soon. You
may also contact us at any time between now and
the submission deadline if you have questions about your submission.

LibrePlanet has thrived for a decade thanks to the interesting ideas
and generous spirit found in the free software community. We
hope you will want to be part of LibrePlanet 2018. [Submit a proposal
now!][0].

#### Gratis admission for FSF members

[Members][9] (and students with valid ID) attend LibrePlanet gratis. FSF
Associate Membership starts at just $10/month and comes with many
[benefits][10].

[9]: https://my.fsf.org/join
[10]: https://www.fsf.org/associate/benefits

#### Need help attending LibrePlanet?

The FSF is able to offer a limited amount of funding to bring
conference participants to LibrePlanet from all around the world. You
can [apply for a scholarship][11] through Thursday, November 30th, 2017
at 10:00 EST (15:00 UTC). Scholarship recipients will be notified by
early January.

[11]: https://my.fsf.org/lp-scholarship-application

If you don't need a scholarship, you can help those with financial
need attend LibrePlanet 2018 by [making a contribution to the
conference's scholarship fund][12] now, or when you register for
LibrePlanet.

[12]: https://my.fsf.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=60

#### Volunteering

LibrePlanet is supported by dozens of volunteers, without whom this
community event would not happen -- and volunteers attend LibrePlanet
gratis. Applications for most LibrePlanet volunteer opportunities will
be available soon, but if you would like to help with advance outreach
(spreading the word about LibrePlanet in online communities, your
networks, and by posting flyers at schools and community spaces),
please email .

#### Free Software Award nominations

Each year at LibrePlanet, the FSF presents its annual Free Software
Awards. [Nominations for the awards][13] are open through Sunday,
November 5th, 2017 at 18:59 EST (23:59 UTC).

[13]: https://www.fsf.org/awards/

#### Promotional opportunities

LibrePlanet is a good place to spread the word about your
organization to the free software community. You can sponsor
LibrePlanet or have a table in our exhibit hall (or both!). Our
exhibit hall is at the center of the LibrePlanet venue, and
sponsors are highly visible at the conference and in our
promotional materials. The FSF and LibrePlanet are heavily
member-supported, and we appreciate the support of organizations
that embrace free software. [Apply to exhibit][2] at LibrePlanet
2018 or email us at if you are interested in
being a sponsor.

Happy hacking,

Georgia Young
Program Manager

Dear Ruben Safir,

Here at the Free Software Foundation, we've been planning for
LibrePlanet 2018, and guess what? It's the **tenth anniversary** of
this free software community conference, and it's happening March
24th-25th, 2018 in the Boston area!

The [call for sessions][0] is open now, until November 2nd,
2017. [General registration][1] and [exhibitor and sponsor registration][2] are
also open. Pre-order a [LibrePlanet 10th anniversary t-shirt][3] when you
register to attend!

[1]: https://my.fsf.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=71
[2]: https://libreplanet.org/2018/sponsors/
[3]: https://shop.fsf.org/tshirts-hoodies/libreplanet-2018

**Do you want to discuss or teach others about a topic relevant to the
free software community? You've got until Thursday, November 2nd,
2017 at 10:00 EDT (14:00 UTC) to [submit your session proposals][0].**

[LibrePlanet][4] is an annual conference for free software enthusiasts
and everyone who cares about the intersection of technology and social
justice. For the past nine years, LibrePlanet has brought together
free software developers, policy experts, activists, hackers,
students, and people who are at the beginning of their free software
journeys. LibrePlanet 2018 will feature programming for all ages and
experience levels.

[4]: https://www.libreplanet.org/2018

If you're new to the community or to the LibrePlanet conference, check
out [last year's conference site][5] and [session videos][6],
including the opening keynote, a look at the [21st century
techno-surveillance state by Kade Crockford of the Massachusetts
chapter of the ACLU][7].

#### What kinds of sessions are we looking for?

Each year, LibrePlanet offers both technical talks and sessions
examining the intersection of free software and activism, culture, and
current events. Here are a few examples of talks or sessions you might
propose:

* An examination of how free software can aid in an aspect of life that is important to you, like education, medicine, social movements, or community organizing

* A workshop (for beginners or experienced users) on how to use a free software program or free hardware project

* A project sprint, where new and current contributors to a free software project can meet and work together on an aspect of the project

* An introduction to free software licensing, copyleft, or a deep dive into a current legal issue

* An update on your free software project

Check out [talk recordings from LibrePlanet 2017][6] for more ideas.

LibrePlanet's 10th anniversary theme is "Freedom. Embedded."
Embedded systems are everywhere, in cars, digital watches,
traffic lights, and even within our bodies. Proprietary software
is everywhere, its sinister aspects woven throughout the devices
permeating our lives. We've come to expect that our phones
monitor our activity and share that data with big companies, and
that governments enforce digital restrictions management (DRM).

In a society reliant on embedded systems, how do we defend computer
user freedom? How do we insist on copylefted code, protect ourselves
against government and corporate surveillance, and move toward a freer
world? For many people, digital freedom seems like a pipe dream. We
change the narrative and make free software the norm, instead of
walled gardens, denial of the right to repair, and DRM.

The FSF is committed to increasing participation by people belonging
to groups traditionally underrepresented at free software conferences,
including women, people of color, and transgender and nonbinary
people. If you are comfortable sharing demographic information on the
proposal form, please do. Your proposal will not be judged negatively
should you choose to omit information about your identity.

The LibrePlanet conference also has a [safe space policy][8], because
we want everyone who attends to feel comfortable, cared for, and able
to enjoy the conference without worrying about harassment. The policy
applies to all conference sessions, so keep that in mind when you
write your proposal.

[8]: https://libreplanet.org/2018/safe-space-policy/

We will hold IRC office hours in the #libreplanet channel on
irc.freenode.org so you can ask questions about the call for
sessions and get feedback on your proposal before you submit -- we
will announce hours and dates for these feedback sessions soon. You
may also contact us at any time between now and
the submission deadline if you have questions about your submission.

LibrePlanet has thrived for a decade thanks to the interesting ideas
and generous spirit found in the free software community. We
hope you will want to be part of LibrePlanet 2018. [Submit a proposal
now!][0].
