The boards of KDE e.V. and the GNOME Foundation have issued a call to
co-host Akademy and GUADEC, the flagship conferences of the KDE and
GNOME projects respectively, during the Summer of 2009.
This would be the first time that the conferences are to be co-hosted.
The combined conference is expected to have around 800 attendees, being
one of the biggest meetings of free software developers in the world.
The content of the conferences will be organized independently, with a
number of co-ordinated cross-over sessions with appeal to all attendees.
Both organizations have noted, however, that proposals to host the
conferences independently are invited as well. The decision about the
events will be made in collaboration of the KDE e.V. and the GNOME
Foundation based on the suitability of the available proposals.
