women developers @ Libre Graphics Meeting 2010

Dear all

My name is Femke Snelting and I am working with Constant, Foundation for Art and Media. Constant is hosting the Libre Graphics Meeting 2010 (LGM), taking place in Brussels 27-30 May. The LGM is an important annual working conference for free software graphics application developers and users. http://www.libregraphicsmeeting.org

At past LGMs there were hardly any women presenting work, and we would like that to change. To make a start, we want to make sure that female developers and users involved in Libre Graphics feel welcome to propose talks at:

Talks can range from 5 to 30 minutes and cover technical developments and/or creative work concerning the wide spectrum of Libre graphics. For an idea of the kind of talks that happened at other meetings, please have a look here:

If you present a project at LGM, there are some possibilities for support:
- A limited number of participants fitting the criteria of the IFN (see below) can travel with a grant from the Francophonie. Contact us a.s.a.p. if you think this applies to you or someone you know of. - Through sponsoring and funding, the LGM-community gathers money to reimburse travel costs for developers that cannot afford their journey otherwise. Contact us in advance if you need to make use of this; you will need to pre-finance your ticket.

If you have any other questions, please e-mail!
