Thanks for the suggestion, I hope that this idea is taken into consideration.

We hear you Felipe, thank you for sending that and we will definitely take it into consideration! 

Another important consideration and requirement is that we need to have a local team that can help with a lot of the planning. LAS is kind of like an emerging GUADEC -- it's definitely not going to be as big yet, but eventually we hope it will become as large or larger than GUADEC since it's not just GNOME-centered. 

James - I'll touch base with you to learn more about the space and local team there. Thank you for the suggestion! 

Is anyone else interested in helping to organize LAS at a local level? Since Spring 2018 (~April) is not that far away, as far as conference-planning goes, we really do need to keep up momentum on the planning. Please let us know at las-gnome gnome org by next week if you're even considering it. That way, we can connect with you further.
