About GNOME.Asia Summit

GNOME.Asia Summit is the yearly GNOME users and developers Asian conference. The event focuses primarily on the GNOME desktop and other devices that use GNOME, and also covers GNOME­ based applications and GNOME development platform tools. It brings together the GNOME community in Asia to provide a forum for users, developers, foundation leaders, governments and businesses to discuss both the present technology and future developments.

For this forth edition of the GNOME.Asia Summit we will be hosting it just before the GNOME 3.0 release. The event will be held on April 2nd (Saturday) at the Dayananda Sagar Educational Institutions, Shivage Malleshwara Hills, Kumaraswamy Layout, Bangalore 560 078, Karnataka (India).
