Welcome to the official GCDS'09 website.
GCDS'09 is a special opportunity for the KDE and GNOME communities who are for the first time co-locating GUADEC and Akademy, their annual conferences, enabling shared activities and collaborative sessions while retaining the unique and independent nature the events have enjoyed in previous years. With the added benefit of a local (Spanish) programme. GNOME and KDE along with the Cabildo of Gran Canaria (local government), are the main organizers. Other local organizers are included on the Organizers section.
From 3rd to 11th July 2009 in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain. For further information, please read theLocation section.
