> * Showcases of excellent work made using Libre Graphics tools
> * New and experimental projects in this area to meet the wider community
> * Reports, use-cases, best practices
> * Talks that show the accomplishments and strides that Libre Graphics has

> Available formats (times include Q&A):
> * Lightning talk (7 minutes, selected at the event unconference style)
> * Presentations (20 minutes)
> * Entry for State of the Libre Graphics Union (1-2 slides)
> * Workshops (1 or 2 hours)*
> * Birds Of a Feather (BOF), discussion meetings or Hackathons (2 hrs or
> more)
> *State of the Libre Graphics Union*
> We will kick off the event with a joint session that sums up all things
> that have happened in our wide landscape over the last year. Instead of
> slots in the schedule for general updates on each and every Libre Graphics
> project, we invite you to submit a maximum of two slides, showcasing new
> abilities and/or text enumerating the leaps forward that your project made.
> *Special focus: Beyond The First Decade*
> Because 2015 marks the tenth edition of LGM, the focus this year is on the
> past and future of Libre Graphics. We have a special interest this year in
> projects that show where Libre Graphics has been, what distances it has
> travelled, and where it might go in the next ten years. We welcome
> submissions representing the broad ecology of Libre Graphics, from
> full-fledged software packages, to artist-built scripts, to art and
> publications, and even the cultural touchstones and issues present in Libre
> Graphics communities. We’re looking for talks, workshops and other events
> that show the accomplishments and strides that Libre Graphics has made in
> its first decade and what it can do next.
