GNOME.Asia 2014 to be held in Beijing

Hosting GNOME.Asia Summit 2014
May 24-25, 2014

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Beijing has been selected as the venue of our upcoming GNOME.Asia Summit 2014. GNOME.Asia Summit 2014 follows the release of GNOME 3.12, helping to bring new desktop paradigms that facilitate user interaction in the computing world.  It will be a great place to celebrate and explore the many new features and enhancements to GNOME 3 and to help make GNOME as successful as possible.  

The first ever GNOME.Asia Summit 2008 was hosted in Beijing. It will be great for GNOME.Asia to come back to Beijing again in the year of 2014. Beijing is the capital of the People’s Republic of China has been the political and cultural center of China for centuries.  The city is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, huge stone walls and gates, and its art treasures and universities have made it a center of culture and art in China. There are good airport connections, and train/bus/subway infrastructure.  We believe that hosting the event in Beijing will bring the spotlight on GNOME and make an impact locally, regionally and internationally in terms of business and community building.   

The venue for the conference will be the BeiHang University (Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics), which has been at the center of  the GNOME.Asia Community for many years. Many of the repeat organizers of the GNOME.Asia Summit are based in Beijing.  

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the GNOME.Asia 2014 bidding process.  We look forward to working with you more in the future!

GNOME.Asia Committee
