Edit: the call for papers is now closed for this year. Thanks to everyone who submitted a talk, and keep an eye on the news feed to find out the final schedule. There will be opportunities to propose last-minute talks during the conference itself.
The GUADEC papers committee is looking for interesting, high-quality, talks for this year’s conference (being held in Manchester, UK, on 28 July to 2nd August). This is a great opportunity to share your ideas with the GNOME project, as well as the wider open source community. You don’t have to be an existing member of the GNOME project to submit a talk: if you have something interesting to say about software or technology, we want to hear from you!
Subjects that we are particularly interested in include:
- Design of user and developer experiences
- Operating system plumbing
- Application development and deployment
- Use of GNOME technologies outside the desktop
- Outreach to new contributors
- Project organisation and governance
- Privacy and security
- Developments in open source/Free Software
- The GNOME developer experience
However, if there is another subject that you would like to talk about, we would love to see your submission.
Talks can be either 25 or 40 minutes in length, which includes time for questions.
23rd April: deadline for talk submissions
7th May: speakers will be notified by email if their talk has been accepted
12th May: deadline for speakers to confirm their attendance
28th-30th July: core conference days in Manchester, England
How to submit a talk
Talks should be submitted through the GUADEC registration website at https://registration.guadec.org
A separate call for lightning talks, birds of a feather sessions and hackfests will be made later.
The papers team is looking forward to your talk proposal. In case of questions regarding the call for talks, please contact the papers team at guadec-papers@gnome org. For general questions regarding the conference, please consult the GUADEC web site or contact the local GUADEC organizing team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
