Desktop Summit CFP Announced and Registration Open

The CFP for the Desktop Summit, which is a joint GNOME and KDE conference to be held August 6-12 in Berlin, Germany, is now open. Abstracts for presentations are due by March 25. Registration for the conference is open now as well. "Held annually in cities around Europe, GUADEC and Akademy are the world's largest gatherings of those involved with the free desktop or mobile user interfaces. Developers, artists, translators, community organisers, users, and representatives from government, education, and businesses and anyone else who shares an interest are welcome. GNOME and KDE are Free Software communities that drive the user interfaces of many Linux-powered devices, ranging from smartphones to laptops, or personal media centers. This year, for the second time, both communities have decided to organise a single, joint conference. We anticipate over a thousand participants, covering both projects as well as related technologies."
