# GUADEC 2014 Call for Presentations

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 2014 will be held in Strasbourg, France. The conference will be
held between July 26th and August 1st; the first four days are the
core conference days, and afterwards there'll
be extra days for hackfests and BoF sessions.

The schedule of the conference mirrors the ongoing development of the
GNOME project:

  * Design of the core user experience (core applications, shell, tool kit)
  * Design of the developer experience (tools, documentation, services)
  * Integration and extension of the operating system plumbings into the
core UX
  * Application development and deployment
  * Integration of web technologies into the GNOME user experience
  * Improving the user experience on different form factors
  * Improvide the documentation of the user experience and the applications
  * Outreach to new contributors
  * Organization and governance of the project

Submissions that do not fit into these categories are also welcome,
provided that they are relevant or inspirational to the GNOME

The Call for Participation for GUADEC 2014 has the following timeline:

 1. Sunday, May 4th: Deadline for submission of abstracts
 2. Sunday, May 11th: Notification of speakers and presentation of the
conference schedule

A separate call for lightning talks will be issued in May. If you are
