About Libre Graphics Meeting:
For four years, the Libre Graphics Meeting has been the premiere conference
for developers, users and supporters of free software graphics
applications. Developers from projects such as [http://www.gimp.org/ GIMP],
[http://www.inkscape.org/ Inkscape], [http://www.blender.org/ Blender], [
http://koffice.org/krita/ Krita], [http://www.scribus.net/ Scribus], [
http://hugin.sourceforge.net/ Hugin], the [http://www.openclipart.org/ Open
Clipart Library], and the [http://www.openfontlibrary.org/ Open Font
Library] gather to work on interoperability, shared standards, and new
ideas. Work at prior LGMs has pushed the state of the art in important
areas such as color management, cross-application sharing of brushes and
other assets, and common formats.
The face-to-face meetings and opportunities for collaboration are important
to developers, but LGM offers plenty for end users as well. Tutorials,
talks, and birds-of-a-feather (BOF) meetings to help free software users get
the most out of their applications fill out the LGM schedule, and
demonstrations from artists showcase what is possible.
