Purpose of Conference

One important question that came up when discussion the idea of LibrePlanet is what makes us different than conferences like FOSSConf].

We decided that although FOSSConf is a great conference, it is also a conference with a very broad focus. Whereas we hope that LibrePlanet's focus will be more narrowly focused and will primarily aim to bring people together to discuss the social, political, and ethical issues of free software, as well as to help strengthen the community.
