GUADEC is the biggest gathering of GNOME users and developers, which takes place in Europe every year. It includes conference days, the GNOME Foundation annual general meeting and hacking in a week of coding and discussion. To make organizing GUADEC easier, GNOME selects the location two years in advance.
Teams wishing to organize GUADEC in their city should let the board know of their intent to submit a bid by August 1, 2013 by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, indicating their availability to meet during this year’s GUADEC to discuss it with the GNOME Foundation board. Final bids will be due by September 30, 2013
Keep in mind that a good candidate should meet the following criteria:
Bids from previous years are available for reference. Also be aware that while organizing a conference such as GUADEC is a huge undertaking, people from the GNOME community have been there before you and will be there to help you. You can find more information at https://wiki.gnome.org/GUADEC including a How To for writing a bid and an overview of the kinds of things you should include in the proposal.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the foundation board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
