The Call for Presentations for GUADEC 2012 is now open:

I've attached the full CfP below, but the two main things you should
know are:

 - you can submit your proposal at
 - deadline for submitting is Saturday, April 14th




GUADEC is the annual conference of the GNOME community, held in Europe
since 2000. GNOME is the Free Software project that drives the user
interfaces of many GNU/Linux-powered devices, ranging from smartphones
to laptops, or personal media centers. This get-together event is the
world's largest gathering of those involved with the free desktop or
mobile user interfaces. GUADEC 2012 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.

For the 2012 edition, GUADEC comes to A Coruña in Spain, a city that has
already seen several successful GNOME-related hackfests in the past
three years. The conference will be held from July 26th to 29th at the
Faculty of Computer Science of the University of A Coruña, with
additional extra days afterwards for hackfests and meetings.

The release of the first GNOME 3 version last year has significantly
refreshed the development of the project. Following this event, several
hot topics are of particular interest for GUADEC 2012:

 - Design of the core user experience
 - Writing applications for GNOME 3
 - Integration of web life into the desktop
 - Adapting GNOME to new types of devices
 - Improvements to and unification of desktop plumbing
 - Outreach to new contributors
 - Organization and governance of the project
 - GNOME’s 15th birthday

Submissions that do not fit into these categories are also welcome,
provided that they are of relevance, or inspiring to the GNOME

The Call for Participation for GUADEC 2012 has the following timeline:

 - Saturday, April 14th: Deadline for submission of abstracts
 - Saturday, April 28th: Notification of speakers
 - July 26th to 29th: The conference takes place in A Coruña, Spain

Please submit your proposal before April 14th through the online
submission system [1]. Presentations will be reviewed by the program
committee between April 15th and April 28th.

A separate call for lightning talks will be issued in April. If you are
interested in organizing a workshop session, a BoF or a project room
during the second part of GUADEC (July 30th - August 1st), please wait
for a later separate call for participation.

The program committee is looking forward to your submissions for
participating to GUADEC 2012 and contributing to turn the event into a
large success. In case of questions regarding the Call for
Participation, feel free to talk to the program committee [2]. For
general questions on the conference, please consult the GUADEC web site
