The GNOME Foundation has announced its annual conference, GUADEC, will be held in The Hague, Netherlands, July 24-30, 2010. More than 500 from the GNOME community are expected to attended the event and come together to discuss the future of the popular desktop for Linux. GUADEC 2010 will focus on three primary themes: government, education, and end users. These are the same themes as GNOME 3.0, which is due to launch in September, 2010. "The idea of doing GNOME 3.0 was first seriously discussed in 2008, before focus areas were defined in 2009, alongside a plan to reach 3.0. Those focus areas include revamping the user experience, streamlining the platform and improving the promotion of GNOME," writes release team member Vincent Untz. "The GNOME 3.0 planning document was answered by the community with atremendous amount of work, with various teams taking the opportunity to set their own goals for 3.0. Such goals range from modernizing part of our stack to proposing new UI models for our desktop." Event organizers say the location for next year's event was chosen from among several options "in part due to the excellent facilities at the bid site, as well as easily accessible site for those traveling to GUADEC. The conference will be held at the Haagse Hogeschool, the higher vocational education institute in the region with an existing affinity for open source." GUADEC organizers plan to put out a call for papers by January 6, 2010, along with details about conference registration and track schedules. Watch the GUADEC Web site for more details.
