The Linux Audio Conference (LAC) is the international conference about Free/Open-Source Software for music, sound and other media with GNU/Linux as the main platform.
The 2018 edition (the sixteenth installment of the conference) will take place June 7th - 10th at c-base and other locations, which will be announced in the final schedule.
