The International Free Software Forum today issued a call for papers ahead of its next annual meeting. Proposals are due by March 7.

Billed as one of the largest Free Software events in the world, this will be the fifth meeting of the International Free Software Forum. Over the last four years, these events have seen more than 4,000 people meet to discuss software ownership, intellectual property issues and so on. Last year’s event attracted delegates from as far afield as Russia, Sweden, The Netherlands, USA, France and Paraguay.

Speakers at previous events include HP's Bdale Garbee, Ximian's Miguel de Icaza, Linux International's Jon 'maddog' Hall, MySQL's David Axmark, FSF's Richard Stallman and TimotyNey, LTSP's Jim McQuillan.

The organisation was set up to promote awareness of free software in developing economies, such as Brasil.

This year's site is a work in progress still, but anyone wishing to submit work should contact Christiano Anderson through the general website. An understanding of Portuguese would be an advantage. ®
