*Libre Graphics Meeting 2015: Beyond The First Decade*

The tenth annual international Libre Graphics Meeting 2015 will take place 29 
April – 2 May 2015 in Toronto, Canada.
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, 
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.

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
* Reports, use-cases, best practices
* Talks that show the accomplishments and strides that Libre Graphics has made 
in its first decade and what it can do next

Available formats (times include Q&A):

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

*State of the Libre Graphics Union*
We will kick off the event with a joint session that sums up all  things that 
have happened in our wide landscape over the last year.  Instead of slots in 
the schedule for general updates on each and every  Libre Graphics project, we 
invite you to submit a maximum of two slides,  showcasing new abilities and/or 
text enumerating the leaps forward  that your project made.

*Special focus: Beyond The First Decade*
Because 2015 marks the tenth edition of LGM, the focus this year is on the past 
and future of Libre Graphics. We have a special interest this year in projects 
that show where Libre Graphics has been, what distances it has travelled, and 
where it might go in the next ten years. We welcome submissions representing 
the broad ecology of Libre Graphics, from full-fledged software packages, to 
artist-built scripts, to art and publications, and even the cultural 
touchstones and issues present in Libre Graphics communities. We’re looking for 
talks, workshops and other events that show the accomplishments and strides 
that Libre Graphics has made in its first decade and what it can do next.
