The GNOME.Asia Committee is proud to announce that the upcoming GNOME.Asia Summit 2017 will be hosted  in Chongqing, China on Oct 14-Oct 16.

The GNOME.Asia committee has decided on the city of Chongqing because it uniquely represents an important theme: open source without any restriction of time, space, or location. Chongqing is located in the southwest of Mainland China and is surrounded by mountains and rivers and used to be difficult to reach in ancient China.  Nowadays, however, Chongqing is a modern city well known for its IT industry as well as its leadership in the development of Western China which attracts more and more great minds and talents. Just as Chinese ancient poetry mentioned “No matter how high the mountain is, one can always ascend to its top”, there are a great many students and people interested in open source software and devote themselves in open source program no matter what difficulty they meet.
