        Apologies for x-posting


        The 2019 Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM) will take place from
        Wednesday May 29 – Sunday June 2 in Saarbruecken, Germany.


        This annual gathering is an opportunity for teams, contributors
        and practitioners involved in Libre Graphics to work together,
        share experiences, and hear new and inspiring ideas.


        By libre Graphics we mean “free, Libre and Open Source tools for
        creative uses”. LGM is not just about software, but extends to
        standards and file formats used in creative work. Participants
        in LGM include developers, designers, academics, and activists.
        People from around the world who are passionate about Free/Libre
        tools and their creative applications.


  Participate!


        LGM 2019 will take place in several venues with large, medium,
        and small spaces. We welcome lectures, workshops and other
        interactive formats. We also work with several gallery spaces
        and will publish a separate call for works (including demos,
        films / games, installations, projections) to be included /
        featured in an exhibition as well as presentations on the art
        academy’s interactive media facade.


        State of Libre Graphics


        Each meeting begins with a joint session that brings together
        everything that’s happened in our wide landscape over the last
        year. Instead of slots for general updates on the various
        software projects, we invite every team to submit two slides
        (maximum) with a short explanatory text that showcases the
        progress made over the past year. For first-time presenters, and
        particularly big or new topics in established projects, we
        encourage additional stand-alone submissions.
