GNOME.Asia 2012 Official Announcement

Hosting GNOME.Asia 2012
June 9-15, 2012
Hong Kong

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Hong Kong has been
selected as the venue of our upcoming GNOME.Asia 2012. GNOME.Asia 2012
follows the release of GNOME 3.4, 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 the groundbreaking GNOME 3 release and to help
make GNOME as successful as possible.

Hong Kong is well known for being one of the largest cities in Asia,
with a thriving cultural scene, solid infrastructure, and robust
public transportation system.   Many countries have a visa-free period
for travel with Hong Kong and the city has well integrated
international connections. We believe that hosting the event in Hong
Kong will bring the spotlight on GNOME and make an impact locally,
regionally and internationally in terms of business and community
building.   Aside from being a business capital, Hong Kong is also
well known as a tourist destination that is famous for its food,
shopping and many attractions.

Potential sites for the conference are the Breakthrough Youth Village
Campsite and City University of Hong Kong, and reasonable rates for
accommodations have been arranged. We are currently evaluating the
best possible dates for the event, and should be able to announce it
within the coming week.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the GNOME.Asia
2012 bidding process, especially the great work from Team GNOME Hong
Kong and Team GNOME Indonesia.  We look forward to working with you
more in the future!

Brian Cameron
GNOME Foundation President
