FYI, the standard LGM press release:

Libre Graphics Meeting (LGM), the premiere workshop and conference for
developers and enthusiasts of free software graphics, will be held May
6-9, 2009, at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

LGM invites you to share your work with the community. Topics of
interest include reports on major open source graphics projects,
technology previews, engineering talks, power-user techniques,
graphics business best practices, and general issues such as open file
formats and collaboration.

Interested projects and individuals should submit proposals for
presentations, demonstrations, and birds-of-a-feather (BOF) sessions
by visiting the talk submission page at the CREATE project wiki.
Proposals should be at most two paragraph abstracts and should include
any special technical requirements.


Individuals who already plan to attend can now register free of charge
at the LGM Web site.


The call for participation ends April 1, so don't delay!

About Libre Graphics Meeting:

For four years, the Libre Graphics Meeting has been the premiere
conference for developers, users and supporters of free software
graphics applications. Developers from projects such as GIMP,
Inkscape, Blender, Krita, Scribus, Hugin, the Open Clipart Library,
and the Open Font Library gather to work on interoperability, shared
standards, and new ideas. Work at prior LGMs has pushed the state of
the art in important areas such as color management, cross-application
sharing of brushes and other assets, and common formats.

The face-to-face meetings and opportunities for collaboration are
important to developers, but LGM offers plenty for end users as well.
Tutorials, talks, and birds-of-a-feather (BOF) meetings to help free
software users get the most out of their applications fill out the LGM
schedule, and demonstrations from artists showcase what is possible.
