May 27 - 30, 2010
Cutting edge graphics software meets free culture
Developers and users of Free, Libre and Open Source graphics software will meet May 27-30 in Brussels at the fifth annual Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM). The meeting space is truly unique - an historic piano factory, freshly renovated into a lively exhibition and workspace. LGM 2010 gives software developers, artists, designers and other graphics professionals the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other. LGM emphasizes the sharing of collective creativity, innovation and ideas and is free for everyone to attend.
A preview of LGM 2010
Face-to-face meetings are important to developers and users alike; LGM provides the time and place for developers and users to interact. Formal tutorials, talks, workshops, informal birds-of-a-feather (BOF) sessions and meetings over lunch give all who attend an opportunity to delve deep into discussion of libre graphics. Teams set up stalls to connect with their colleagues and the public.
Important work on open color management systems and the SVG vector graphics standard for print and web will take place at LGM2010. In addition, an increasing number of artists, designers and academics showcasing novel uses of libre graphics software are getting involved this year, and specific activities will be organized for students from art and design schools. The LGM community is excited to bring this important event to the European capital!
