Call for invitations for GUADEC
Thu, 10 Feb 2005 12:04:27 +0100

Call for invitations for GUADEC 2006

The board will prepare for a new Call for invitations very soon and set
a deadline which is equal for all.

Last year we were looking for possibilities to hold GUADEC in a new EU
member country. But all invitations are welcome and the board will take
the totality of the offer in the invitation into account.

The board is very pleased that more countries or regions are willing to
invite us to the next GUADEC event or the technical summit in case you
want to start hosting a smaller event the first time.
