The GNOME Foundation is pleased to announce that travel sponsorship applications for GUADEC 2023 are currently open. GUADEC is the GNOME community’s annual conference, and this year it will be held in Riga, Latvia on July 26-31.

GUADEC is a great opportunity for developers, designers, and contributors to come together to discuss and learn about the latest developments in the GNOME project. The conference features a variety of talks, workshops, and social events that help foster collaboration and innovation within the GNOME community.

If you are interested in presenting at or attending GUADEC but require financial assistance to make the trip, you may request support from our travel committee. The deadline* to apply for travel sponsorship is March 31st, so be sure to submit your application as soon as possible.

To apply for travel sponsorship, please submit a GitLab issue using this template: https://gitlab.gnome.org/Teams/TravelCommittee/-/issues/new?issue%5Bconfidential%5D=true.

Sponsorships are limited so we encourage everyone who is able to receive funding through their company or project to start there. We hope to see you in Riga this summer for an exciting and productive conference!

*Please note that the application will be open longer for GSoC students who need assistance attending GUADEC. GSoC students should check with their mentors for more information.
