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.

Health, accessibility and handicap

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 program committee of the
health theme offers 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.

Finally workshops will be available to practice and exchange ideas about tools
presented by their designers or by users already experienced in these

Please see for more details and submission
