*Libre Graphics Meeting 2016: Other Dimensions*


The eleventh annual international Libre Graphics Meeting 2016 will take place Friday 15th until Monday 18th 
April 2016 in London, UK. This yearly event is an occasion for teams and individual contributors/artists 
involved in Libre Graphics to work together, to share experiences and to hear about new ideas. By Libre 
Graphics we mean Free, Libre and Open Source tools for design, illustration, photography, typography, art, 
graphics, page layout, publishing, 3D modelling, digital making and manufacture, cartography, animation, 
video, interactive media, generative graphics and visual live-coding. The Libre Graphics Meeting is not just 
about software, but extends to standards, file formats and actual use of these in creative work. LGM has 
become the place in which they can discuss their projects, coordinate their efforts and, crucially, to meet 
in person. Participants in the LGM include developers, designers, academics and activists from around the 
world, who are all passionate abo
ut Free/

ibre graphics software and technology.

*State of the Libre Graphics Union*

We begin each meeting with a joint session that brings together all things that have happened in our wide 
landscape over the last year. So, instead of slots in the schedule for general updates on each Libre Graphics 
software project, we invite every team present at LGM to submit two slides (maximum), with a short 
explanatory text that showcases the leaps forward that has been made over the past year. For first-time 
presenters and particular big or new topics/features in established projects, we encourage additional 
stand-alone submissions.

*Special focus: Other Dimensions*

In Toronto we celebrated the first decade of LGM, reflecting on the past and considering the future. For the 
2016 edition of LGM we continue speculating and will expand Libre Graphics into Other Dimensions. We are 
looking for presentations and workshops that explore the dimensions of space and material: 3D modelling and 
animation, Libre architecture, Open Source product design and other fields of digital making and manufacture. 
We are also seeking contributions that offer reflections on the 'other dimensions' of open source communities 
and that engage with FLOSS tools in various contexts including but not limited to teaching, learning, 
practice and co-production. This represents a desire to address the future sustainability of the Libre 
Graphics movement, through a growth of the core projects and topics that will, we hope, allow us to welcome 
more and more FLOSS projects and participants to our community.

We are looking for:

* In-depth presentations of Libre Graphics code-contributions
* Showcases of excellent work made using Libre Graphics tools
* New and experimental projects in this area to meet the wider community, including those in the field of 3D 
design and making
* Reflections on the activities of existing open source communities in either the production of Free, Libre 
and Open Source tools or their use

Available formats (times include Q&A):

* Entry for State of the Libre Graphics Union (1-2 slides)
* Presentations (20 minutes)
* Workshops (1 or 2 hours)*
* Birds Of a Feather (BOF), discussion meetings or Hackathons (2 hrs or more)
* Lightning talk (7 minutes, selected at the event unconference style)

*Practical Details*

Submission deadline: 10 January 2016, content selection notification by end of January 2016.
