See you all in Brno! ciao, Emmanuele. +++ GUADEC Call for Participation GUADEC is the annual conference of the GNOME community, held in Europe since 2000. GNOME is a free software project which drives user interfaces of many GNU/Linux-powered devices, ranging from smartphones to laptops and personal media centers. GUADEC is the world's largest gathering of users and developers who are involved with the free desktop and mobile user interfaces. GUADEC is expected to draw hundreds of attendees who will discuss and direct the future of the GNOME project. Developers, artists, translators, users, and representatives from government, education, and businesses, and anyone else who shares an interest are welcome. GUADEC 2013 will be held in Brno, Czech Republic, a city which has played host to several other successful GNOME-related hackfests in the past. The conference will be held August 1st to 8th, with extra days available after the core conference for hackfests and meetings. The schedule of the conference mirrors the ongoing development of the GNOME project: • Design of the core user experience (core applications, shell, toolkit) • Design of the developer experience (tools, documentation, services) • Integration and extension of the operating system plumbings into the core UX • Application development and deployment • Integration of web technologies into the GNOME user experience • Improving the user experience on different form factors • Outreach to new contributors • Organization and governance of the project Submissions that do not fit into these categories are also welcome, provided that they are relevant or inspirational to the GNOME community. The Call for Participation for GUADEC 2013 has the following timeline: 1. Saturday, April 27h: Deadline for submission of abstracts 2. Saturday, May 4th: Notification of speakers 3. August 1st to 8th: The conference takes place in Brno, Czech Republic Please submit your proposals before April 27th through the online submission system. Presentations will be reviewed by the program committee between the 28th of April and 4th of May. A separate call for lightning talks will be issued in April. If you are interested in organizing a workshop session, BoF or project room during the second part of GUADEC, please wait until the relevant call for participation is made. The program committee is looking forward to your submissions to participate in GUADEC 2013 and contributing to turn the event into a large success.
