LSM 2018

Amphitheatre of the Escarpe building, Thursday 12 July 2018. Review of the LSM 18 with the team.

The Libre Software Meeting 18 took place in Strasbourg from July 07 to 12, 2018, on the central campus of the University. The event was organized by the Federation, supported by the association Hackstub, with the support of the City and University of Strasbourg, FSFE, Shadok, Médiathèque André Malraux and @ppli. The theme of the 2018 edition was digital education: “Digital education, a factory of captivity or new emancipation?”.

No less than 200 speakers were programmed over five days in a variety of formats: conferences, workshops, chatrooms, debates, panel discussions, etc. A self-managed hackerspace was accessible at the Shadok during the event as well as an associative village called "village du Libre", with numerous Libre stands. The week also included some highlights, including a Libre meal at the FEC place St-Étienne, a performance and concert evening at the Shadok and a Libre evening (Libre music) at the Salle des Colonnes (see Laiterie).
