Co-ordinating GUADEC schedule after Monday

Hi all,

There's a very rough provisional schedule for GUADEC and Akademy
starting to solidify now - and I'd like to see us have a smidgin of
structure to affairs after the core sessions on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The very rough schedule is below, and on the website.

To summarise, we have 3 days set aside for core sessions & talks,
followed by 4 days for BOFs, hacking sessions, local language talks, and
themed sessions.

On Tuesday, the GNOME Foundation advisory board will meet all day. while
this will take some key people out of circulation for the day (both
company representatives and board members), it shouldn't stop us from
organising BOFs.

On Wednesday, the foundation AGM will be held (probably in the morning),
and we will have a GNOME Mobile themed day for the other half-day.

On Thursday, Edu day is planned, with some talks and BOFs lined up by
the local organisers around the theme of free software in education.

Finally, on Friday, GUADEC-es will target hackers with Spanish language

What I would like to see is for us to have 2 or 3 pretty disjoint themes
per day or half-day, with a co-ordinator, where we federate good content
which wasn't accepted for the core days, and brainstorming/BOF type
sessions led by the community leaders in the area.

I would like to see a Documentation half-day, a l10n/i18n half-day, an
a11y summit, a Web Integration day, and why not a GNOME 3.0
brainstorming/design/hackfest day?

Are there any groups out there who have already planned to get together,
who would like to run a themed half-day (or full-day) and who have
people who would be prepared to take on the subject and run with it,
co-ordinate BOFs and presentations, and generally make their sessions rock?

We can co-ordinate schedules on the gcds list:, which I
hope everyone attending the conference is subscribed to, or on
guadec-list - or just reply here.

Thanks for the interest!
