For those who are interested in attending, GIMP and Scribus will be presented at "swiss publishing week 2014" in September in Winterthur, Switzerland.
GIMP will be presented by Peter Jäger, a professional Photoshop trainer and image editing expert from Switzerland, Scribus by Christoph Schäfer, i.e. myself (Scribus Team). The GIMP presentation (11 September) will focus on GIMP as an alternative to Photoshop. My Scribus talk (10 September) will cover advanced graphics features in Scribus 1.4.x and 1.5.0svn.
Conference language will be German, and since this is a commercial event for professionals, attendance fees are quite hefty (675 CHF for two days if one isn't eligible for a rebate).
While this is mostly an Adobe-centred and Adobe-sponsored event, I think getting invited to a conference like this is a sign of Libre Graphics software finally being taken seriously by graphics/publishing professionals. The organiser is the Swiss "Publisher" magazine, one of the sponsors of LGM 2014, and the magazine's editors have considered Open Source programmes to be natural alternatives for some time already, as their "Software" news section demonstrates.
