GUADEC 2021 Call for Participation is Now Open

The GNOME Foundation is excited to announce that the call for participation for GUADEC 2021 is now open.

Proposals can be submitted on the event page: https://events.gnome.org/event/9/abstracts/ 17

GUADEC, the GNOME community’s largest conference, is taking place between the 21st to 25th of July and will be held online but with a possibility of having a hybrid conference in Mexico as well if travel turns out to be possible by then.

The GNOME Foundation is looking for talks on a wide range of topics including but not limited to:

  • Application development
  • Privacy and security
  • Community and team building
  • Design of user and developer experience
  • Use of GNOME technologies outside the desktop
  • Newcomers initiatives
  • Project planning and governance

The first two days of the conference, 21st and 22nd of July, will be dedicated only to talks. We have a shorter schedule than we usually have in person in order to avoid exhaustion.The other two days, 23rd and 24th, will be BoFs and workshops, and the last day is a free/fun day for everyone who would like to stay around and chat with others.

Talk submissions are due by the 22nd of March, 19:00 UTC.

Additional updates about GUADEC 2021 can be found on the event website and on our social media channels. Press inquiries and questions regarding the event can be sent to: guadec@gnome.org
