Registration requests are welcome for the 5th International conference of developers and users of free / open source software “Linux Vacation / Eastern Europe” (LVEE 2009) that will take place on July 02-05 near Grodno (Belarus).

LVEE 2009 is organized by Minsk Linux Users Group with support of the open source community active members from Grodno and Brest.

Recommended Conference languages are Russian, Belarusian and English.

Participation requests submission deadline is June, 12. Abstracts submission deadline is May, 24.

Conference format includes reports, workshops, and round tables. Speakers will be provided with a conference hall, a projector and sound. An abstracts digest will be published before the Conference beginning. Presentations subjects include development and maintenance of free software, adoption and administrating of FOSS-based solutions, peculiarities of free licenses usage. LVEE covers a wide range of platforms – from workstations and servers to embedded systems and mobile devices.

The “Himik” tourist camp near Grodno, Belarus was once again chosen as a place of the Conference. In case if the amount of participation requests would exceed the “Himik” capacity (as it happened in some of previous years), there would be a contest-based requests approval with priority given to the Conference speakers and free / open source software contributors.

Authors of reports, sponsors representatives and press are free from paying the organization fee. Also a prize for the best report is handed after the audience voting.

List of the Conference sponsors is still to be detailed. For today it includes SaM Solutions, Promwad, and Lokalnye seti companies.

Please visit the website to find additional information and to register as a participant or as a speaker of the Conference.
