The GNOME Foundation is excited to announce that the call for participation for GUADEC 2022 is now open.

Proposals can be submitted on the event page:

GUADEC, the GNOME community’s largest conference, will take place in Guadalajara, Mexico between the 20th and 25th of July.

This year’s conference includes a number of exciting milestones! GUADEC 2022 will be our first return to in-person events after two years of remote conferences and will include streaming for those who wish to join virtually. This will also be our first GUADEC held in North America. We hope this expansion of our flagship conference will not only make it easier for our community members in North and South America to attend but will also kick-start local participation in the GNOME project. Furthermore, this year we celebrate our 25th Anniversary of GNOME! In honor of this momentous occasion, our conference theme for GUADEC 2022 will be 25 Years of GNOME. We encourage anyone interested in submitting a proposal to think about how their work with GNOME has evolved and progressed throughout our project history, tell us about your current work, or look ahead to future projects and initiatives.

The GNOME Foundation is looking for talks on a wide range of topics including but not limited to:

  • Application development
  • Privacy and security
  • Community and team building
  • Design of user and developer experience
  • Use of GNOME technologies outside the desktop
  • Newcomers initiatives
  • Project planning and governance

The first three days of the conference, the 20th – 22nd of July, will be dedicated to talks. The next two days, 23rd – 24th, will be BoFs and workshops, and the last day will be a fun social event for everyone who would like to join.

We hope that everyone will join us in Guadalajara for an in-person presentation, but we also have a limited number of remote talk spots for those attending virtually. Please indicate if your proposal is for a remote talk by selecting a remote contribution type on your submission.

Talk submissions are due by the 8th of April, 19:00 UTC.
