LGM2014 will happen April 2-5th in Leipzig, Germany and this will be my fifth year attending. In fact LGM 2010 in Brussels was my first international conference ever, and convinced me that I wanted to make open source professionally.
I'm very excited about this years program, because once again we have managed to combine bleeding edge developments in open source software for graphics and visuals, with a wide range of connecting fields: open hardware, design, art activism, free cultural works, research and education.
Personally, I especially look forward to:
- Richard Hughes: Building an OpenHardware Spectrograph for Color Profiling in Linux
- Johannes Hanika: Wavelets for image processing
- Manuel Quiñones: GEGL is not GIMP - creating graphic applications with GEGL (workshop)
- Libre Graphics Magazine: Beating the drums, Why we made gender an issue
I am also hosting a BoF session on visual programming of libre graphics tools. Curious to see what comes out of that.
If you are interested in open source and graphics, don't miss Libre Graphics Meeting.
Register now (it's free and open for all)!
Can't go to LGM, but would still like to contribute? Please consider donating to our travel fund.
I would like to thank the GIMP project for sponsoring my trip to LGM2014.
