The Libre Software Meeting (LSM or RMLL in French for Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre) is a cycle of conferences about Free Software. LSM is an annual event born in 2000, and since 2003, it occurs in a different town each year. Participation in LSM is free and includes beer and speeches :-) There are no fees, and no limited number of places. RMLL 2011 will take place in Strasbourg (France) from the 9th to 14th July.

For this edition, the LSM offers 8 topics, including 7 major sessions on technical themes. Please submit your conference paper abstracts before the deadline, in the appropriate theme. The list of accepted conferences will be communicated a maximum of 15 days after the submission deadline. For each conference, a beamer (VGA cable), power outlets, and an internet access (wifi) will be available.

Special Topic: Health, accessibility and handicap:

Program: Health, accessibility and handicap (FR | EN).

This year, the Health topic will be organized according to 3 main axes:

  • Accessibility, autonomy and dependency management
  • Hospital Information System & Telehealth
  • Imaging & visualization of medical data

The Libre Software Meeting offers this year again a venue of choice for actors in the world of health. Through the Health theme, the committee hopes to distribute the LSM and enhance open source projects in this field. To better target the various exchanges that take place, the coordinators of the health topic offer several types of meetings:<

  • meetings "solutions", with lectures and round tables to present solutions dedicated to our research.
  • conferences "state of art" between practitioners, developers and scientists to discuss what are the specific needs of users, what works well or less well, discuss approaches...
  • presentations of "technical" between developers and scientists. This will initiate exchanges between communities that may not have the opportunity to meet and perhaps to initiate new collaborations or projects.

Chairmen: Johan Moreau (Research Institute Against Digestive Cancer IRCAD, Strasbourg), Samuel Thibault (ENS Lyon)
