It’s 2013. The GNOME summit is coming back to Montréal!
The summit will be on the usual Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend (Columbus day long weekend for the US): October 12, 13, 14.
The summit is being hosted by Savoir-faire Linux. The venue will most likely be their offices in Montréal, but we may move to a local university if the projected list of attendees gets too large. Founded in 1999, Savoir-faire Linux has an outstanding team of 80 Free Software consultants based in Montreal, Quebec City and Ottawa, and is a leading provider of training, consulting, development and support services on open source technologies.
A wiki page has been put online here: https://wiki.gnome.org/Montreal2013. In particular this year, please make sure to add yourself to the confirmed or tentative lists so that we know if we will need a larger venue.
Savoir-faire is already offering a venue and will be sponsoring a party during one of the evenings, but we are still looking for additional sponsors. If you’d like to help out with catering, a dinner, or to offset the costs of travel and hotel bookings, please get in touch!
More information about travel sponsorship, hotels, and a definitive venue confirmation will be coming soon. Stay tuned.
