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
