Call for contributions to scientific research topic of Libre Software Meeting 2006

Jerome Pansanel  (3 May 2006)

Libre Software Meeting. The Libre Software Meeting is a yearly free software event that takes place in France since 2000 (originating from Bordeaux, this event is driven by volunteers from the free software community). The LSM 2006 takes place this year in Vandoeuvre-les-Nancy, from July 4th to 8th.

The language of the lectures of almost all technical sessions is English while some of the non-technical sessions open to a wider and local public may be in French (check on the web site). Nevertheless, due to late call, expected audience, and possible speakers, some talks may be given in French or other languages.

This message is a call for contributions for the libre software for scientific research session of the LSM.

Libre Software for Scientific Research. The goal of this topic is to highlight free software that is currently used in scientific research or that, by its quality, deserves a wider adoption. The targeted audience are researchers willing to share their experience with respect to scientific free software anddevelopers of these projects. We focus this year on free software aiming at graphical representations and handling of scientific data.

There is no program committee (it is not a scientific conference) and selection process is expected to remain as lightweight as possible. If you want to help in organizing the event, you are welcome. Take a look on the wiki for further informations.

Talks. Talks, in English, in French or in other languages, (with at least slides in English) are expected to last around 45 minutes. Printable version of the lecture are not mandatory but would be very appreciated.

If you are considering coming and preparing a talk, please send us an email at before the middle of May 2005. Feel free to send this mail wherever or to whom you feel it is relevant (but beware of spamming people).

Deadline. If critical mass of speakers will not be reach for mid-may, we may have to vanish this session.

Help. Travel expenses are refunded under those rules, so contact us if you feel you need them. It is safer not to dwell on refunding. Registration is free.

Please consider the opportunity of the libre software meeting (and its infrastructure) to a have a gathering of the developers of the free software for scientific research you are involved with. We can help you in such a matter.

Authors. This call has been written by Dr Alain Coulais and Dr Frederic Lehobey (RMLL 2006 volunteers for libre software for scientific research topic).
