forum for planning future development and growth.¬† This document serves as the formal invitation to participate in the summit.¬† Please join us and participate!
The theme of the summit is 'Get Freedom with GNOME' which refers to the primary goals of the GNOME.Asia Summit: spreading the knowledge of GNOME and free/open source software across Asia; and building a vibrant, thriving community around it. Our target audiences include GNOME users,
developers, contributors, students, and clients in Asia.
The event will feature keynotes, sessions, lightning talks, exhibitions, and a hands-on lab. We are asking for submissions for three types of proposals:
- Lightning talks
- Exhibition, hands-on lab
The lightning talks at the GNOME.Asia Summit are short presentations. Each lightning talk is only 5 minutes long with no time for Q&A. Please take into consideration any time you will need for preparation, such as projector setup. Proposals for lightning talks will be accepted on a
first-come-first-served basis, limited by available space.
At the GNOME.Asia Summit 2009, we will have a special area for exhibition and hands-on Lab.¬† Exhibitions including booths, posters and stands, and hands-on Lab are welcome.
Topic areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- GNOME 3.0
- Localization & Internationalization
- Mobile platforms and thin clients
- GNOME Communities
- GNOME library and application development
- Desktop deployments
- School software
The deadline for submissions is October 28, 2009. Successful candidates will be selected and notified by the organizing committee by October 30, 2009. Once your abstract is selected you will need to create an account on the GNOME.Asia Summit website where you will need to update your topic information, along with providing some biographical information.
All interested contributors are highly encouraged to send in their proposals.¬† Please help us to spread the invitation to other potential participants. Even you do not plan to be a speaker, please consider joining us. This is going to be a great event!
