About the GNU Hackers Meeting:
The GNU Hackers Meeting is an annual, semi-formal gathering of programmers, advocates, users and everyone interested in GNU. The program comprises informal talks, seminars, workshops and discussion sessions. Social interaction is also a purpose of the event. Previous meetings have been held in Rennes, Paris, Bristol and Düsseldorf.

About GNU:
GNU was launched in 1983, as an operating system which would be put together by people working together for the freedom of all software users to control their computing.

The primary and continuing goal of GNU is to offer a Unix-compatible system that would be 100% free software. The name of the system, GNU, is a recursive acronym meaning "GNU's Not Unix". Technically, GNU is similar to Unix. But unlike Unix, GNU gives its users freedom.
