GUADEC 2016 to take place in Karlsruhe, Germany

It is with pleasure that the GNOME Foundation is announcing that Karlsruhe, Germany, will host GUADEC in the summer of 2016.

Karlsruhe is situated in the Southern part of Germany and is Germany’s sunniest city. It is easy to get to as it is a short trip from both Frankfurt international airport and Stuttgart airport. Karlsruhe combines a strong sense for science and technology with a penchant for creativity and design. The city hosts four higher education institutions that offer computer science related degrees, so an emphasis will be made to reach out to the local student population.

The GNOME User and Developer European Conference brings together hundreds of users and developers every year to further GNOME. We expect GUADEC 2016 to take place around July-August.
