Open Source Publishing – Graphic Design Caravan

In preparation: Research meeting Co-position

News · January 2nd, 2012 ·

Over at the Libre Graphics Research Unit we are preparing a second ‘Research Meeting’ that will take place in Brussels from 22 to 25 February 2012. Developers, designers and theoreticians from all over Europe will gather to imagine future Libre Graphics tools together. The theme for this particular edition is Co-position, and we’ll speculate about software for arranging texts and graphical elements. How can we re-imagine lay-out from scratch? What tools do we need to support decentralized collaboration? How can we bring together canvas editing, dynamic lay-outs, web-to-print and Print On Demand in more interesting ways? What kind of messages do we propagate and how does this change the tools we need? These and many more questions will be addressed in four intense days of presentations, discussions, development sessions and prototyping.
