GUADEC, the GNOME community’s largest conference, is taking place between the 22nd – 28th of July and will be held in Zacatecas, Mexico.  The GNOME Foundation is looking for talks on a wide range of topics including but not limited to:

The first day, the 22nd of July, will be called “GNOME Open Day”. The GNOME Foundation is looking for proposals for this day, in particular, that will focus on local outreach, governance, and getting more people involved in the Zacatecas region. These talks should be meant for new GNOME users. We also welcome talks on this day to be given in both Spanish and English to make them more accessible for locals.
