Call for Participation in the Libre Application Summit 2018
Presented by the GNOME Foundation

Denver, CO. The GNOME Foundation is pleased to announce the Call for Participation in the 2018 Libre Application Summit (LAS). The conference will be held from September 6th – 9th in Denver, Colorado, and brings together developers, entrepreneurs, and free and open source (FOSS) enthusiasts for discussion and debate around the future of the open source application ecosystem.

The conference will be held at the Parkside Mansion, situated immediately next to the Denver City Park, with direct access to downtown, public transport, restaurants, and nightlife. With the beautiful Colorado summer weather, there really is no better spot for our community to come together to chart the collective future of our projects.
