Now you can get in touch with us at our dedicated booth, meet us in person and find out more information about our current and future activities.

Note from eLiberatica organizers: Alex should be credited with the idea of having a booth at eLiberatica where any FLOSS Romanian organization would sent a representative. We are proud to see young people like him and Tibi taking responsibilities and being a model for others.

We are also using this chance to officially thank to the following volunteers who are helping to run eLiberatica: Tibi Turbureanu, Marius Latu, Laurentiu Dascălu, Cristi Bercaru, Vali Gosu, Cătălin Cîrlan, Tania Cristea and Lori Terzea.
