Hi ,

We're excited to announce that registration is now open for [LibrePlanet 2013: "Commit
Change."](http://libreplanet.org/wiki/LibrePlanet:Conference/2013)

LibrePlanet is a yearly conference where the global free software community comes together to learn
from each other, face challenges and welcome newcomers. This year, the conference focuses on
bringing together the diverse voices that have a stake in free software, from software developers
to activists, academics to computer users. The theme is called "Commit Change," and it's about
drawing ideas from everyone to create the software freedom we need.

If you're an FSF associate member, you can [sign up
now](http://libreplanet.org/wiki/LibrePlanet:Conference/2013) at no cost! Otherwise, we invite you
to [become a member](http://www.fsf.org/associate/benefits) for gratis admission and a host of
other benefits, including an account on our brand new [Jabber chat

You can also [attend the conference at the non-member rate]

The conference will feature a keynote address by Karen Sandler, executive director of the GNOME
Foundation and renowned software freedom advocate. LibrePlanet will also include workshops in using
free programs, talks and discussion panels with free software luminaries, plentiful networking
opportunities and a pre-conference social gathering. In addition to Karen, the program includes
sessions with Stefano Zacchiroli, Project Leader at Debian, Wendy Seltzer of the W3C, and our own
Richard Stallman.

If you're interested in technology's role in struggles for justice, community, and freedom, then
