GUADEC is the main conference for GNOME users, developers, foundation leaders, individuals, governments and businesses worldwide. GUADEC is not just a software conference though! People come together to meet collaborators from chat rooms and mailing lists, to network, to visit old friends and make new ones, and to have fun.

The 2016 edition of GUADEC will happen in Karlsruhe, Germany from August 12 – 14 for the core conference days. Come early or stay after for workshops on August 11 and BoFs and hackfests from August 15 – 17. All conference events and workshops will be held at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology located in the heart of the city.
