The GNOME.Asia Committee is inviting interested parties to submit proposals for hosting the GNOME.Asia during the 2nd quarter of 2015.
The GNOME.Asia Summit is the featured annual GNOME Conference in Asia. The event focuses primarily on the GNOME desktop, but also covers applications and the development platform tools. It brings together the GNOME community in Asia to provide a forum for users, developers, foundation leaders, governments and businesses to discuss both the present technology and future developments.
GNOME.Asia Summits have been held in Beijing, Ho-Chi-Minh City, Taipei, Bangalore, Hong Kong Seoul and Beijing respectively over the last seven years. The Summit’s preference is to find a new location each year in order to we spread GNOME throughout Asia and we are looking for local organizers to rise to the challenge of organizing an excellent GNOME event. The GNOME.Asia committee will assist in the process, but there is a definitive need for individuals to be actively involved and committed to the planning and execution of the event.
You can learn more about GNOME.Asia Summit at our website: http://www.gnome.asia
Interested parties are hereby invited to submit a formal proposal to the gnome-asia-committee-list<at>gnome<dot> org . The deadline for the proposals is September 1, 2014. Please email your proposal to gnome-asia-committee-list<at>gnome<dot> org. We might invite you to present your proposal in more details over our regular IRC meetings or send you additional questions and requests. Results will be announced by the third week of September, 2014.
The conference will require availability of facilities for 3-5 days, including a weekend, during the 2nd quarter of 2015 (between March and June). Final event dates should avoid other key free software conferences or other events that may have conflict and will be confirmed together with other GNOME teams which might get involved. Key points which each proposals should consider and which will be taken into account when deciding among candidates, are:
Please refer to the official web site of GNOME.Asia . Please also check the GNOME.Asia Summit check list , howtos  and the winning proposal for 2012  when putting together a proposal.

The Akademy Program Committee is excited to announce the Akademy 2014 Program. It is worth the wait! We waded through many high quality proposals and found that it would take more than a week to include all the ones we like. However we managed to bring together a concise and (still packed) schedule.
As we wrote in the Call for Papers, sharing is an important goal of Akademy. So on Saturday and Sunday in the morning, there will be a single track in the main room which will start with a keynote, followed by 9 short talks. These cover a wide range of KDE-related topics including technical, governance, design, social issues and more, providing inspiration and material for further conversation and debate. Some examples are:
In the afternoon, there are two tracks of longer, more traditional talks, with a stronger-than-usual in-depth focus. The goal of these sessions is to share knowledge and experience, to learn from each other. In these sessions, you can explore:
The Akademy Program is packed with goodies for many interests. And there will be many opportunities to learn, contribute, and work hard throughout Akademy. We urge you to register now if you haven’t already!

For most of the year, KDE—one of the largest FOSS communities in the world—works online by email, IRC, forums and mailing lists. Akademy provides all KDE contributors the opportunity to meet in person to foster social bonds, work on concrete technology issues, propose and consider new ideas, and reinforce the innovative, dynamic culture of KDE. Akademy brings together artists, designers, developers, translators, users, writers, sponsors and other types of KDE contributors to celebrate the achievements of the past year and help determine the direction for the following year. Hands-on sessions offer the opportunity for intense work to bring those plans to reality. The KDE Community welcomes companies building on KDE technology, or looking to begin using it.
