  • To ensure a conference that's safe and fun for everyone, we take our Safe Space Policy very seriously. We'd appreciate it if you looked it over before planning your presentation.
  • There are many conferences focused on "open source," and we're proud that people come to LibrePlanet to be part of the free software movement. In your presentations, please use the term "free software" rather than "open source", to help us keep LibrePlanet focused on computer-user freedom. We appreciate it, and your audience will too.

Submit a recorded lightning talk

  • Record a 5-minute max. If you didn't make this deadline, do not hesitate to upload, who knows, we may still find a spot for it.

The lightning talks will be streamed and posted online.

Submit your slides for an in-person lightning talk


If you have questions, please send an email with your question to campaigns at fsf dot org.

Our tips for an awesome lightning talk:

  • Be as selective as possible with what you cover. (In our experience, a five-minute talk cannot cover what a fifteen-minute talk covers and still be effective.)
  • Use a large, reader-friendly font for all your slides.
  • Keep the number of your slides low.
  • Do not visually overload your slides.
