GUADEC: How to bid

Before you organise a GUADEC, you need to submit a bid. Your bid should demonstrate that the location is suitable for GUADEC, that there is a good local team and that you have thought about the budget. You should take the check list into consideration before writing your bid.

Once you finish your bid, you need to submit it to the Foundation and the board via the foundation-announce and board-list mailing lists.
