This message is a call for contributions for the “libre software for scientific research” session of the LSM.

The goal of this topic is to highlight free software that is currently used in scientific research or that, by its quality, deserves a wider adoption. The targeted audience are researchers willing to share their experience with respect to scientific free software and
developers of these projects. We will provide much attention to interdisciplinary projects.

There is no programme committee (it is not a scientific conference) and selection process is expected to remain as lightweight as
possible. If you want to help in organising the event, you are welcome.

Talks, in English, are expected to last around 45 minutes. Printable version of the lecture are not mandatory but would be very appreciated.

If you are considering coming and preparing a talk, please send us an email at lehobey@free.fr before the end of March 2005.

Feel free to send this message wherever or to whom you consider relevant (but beware of spamming people).

Please consider the opportunity of the libre software meeting (and its infrastructure) to have a gathering of the developers of the free software for scientific research you are involved with. We can help you in such a matter.

Best regards,

Dr Frederic Lehobey

(RMLL 2005 volunteer for libre software for scientific research topic)
