               (also available in [1]french and [2]german)

Libre Software Meeting

   The sixth edition of the [3]Libre Software Meeting will take place in
   Dijon, France, from July 5th to July 9th 2005. This is a major event
   for the free software community. Previous editions had gathered some
   1000 participants from all continents, and hundreds of people from
   around the world are expected to take part this year. The Libre
   Software Meeting combines two goals. It provides a space for free
   software developers and enthusiasts to meet, exchange and work on
   common projects. It is also oriented towards the wider public, in an
   attempt to promote and introduce free software to all.


   While daytime events are to be hosted by the University of Burgundy,
   nightly activities will take place in "Espace autogéré des Tanneries",
   a nearby squatted social centre, home of the PRINT hacklab. This off
   is called the Nocturnes. It is being organised by groups & individuals
   from the [4]french section of the [5]Plug'n'Politix network, among
   which are the [6]PRINT and [7]grep|grrl collectives.

   This is an occasion to give visibility to politically-minded &
   activist parts of the free software community, which often get less
   attention than the business-oriented tendency; an occasion to show and
   spread the hybrid culture that's been brewed in between hacklabs,
   anarchist tech collectives, Indymedia groups, open-access spaces,
   hackmeetings and activist places; by allowing geeks to visit such a
   space where politics and software meet, by putting self-organisation
   and volunteer participation in practice, be it for software
   development or organising an event.
