Hong Kong to host GNOME.Asia 2012, June 9-15

It is with great pleasure that the GNOME Foundation announces that Hong Kong has been selected as the venue of our upcoming GNOME.Asia 2012. GNOME.Asia 2012 follows the release of GNOME 3.4, helping to bring new desktop paradigms that facilitate user interaction in the computing world. It will be a great place to celebrate and explore the many new features and enhancements to the groundbreaking GNOME 3 release and to help make GNOME as successful as possible.
Hong Kong is well known for being one of the largest cities in Asia, with a thriving cultural scene, solid infrastructure, and robust public transportation system. Many countries have a visa-free period for travel with Hong Kong and the city has well integrated international connections. We believe that hosting the event in Hong
Kong will bring the spotlight on GNOME and make an impact locally, regionally and internationally in terms of business and community building. Aside from being a business capital, Hong Kong is also well known as a tourist destination that is famous for its food, shopping and many attractions.
Potential sites for the conference are the Breakthrough Youth Village Campsite and City University of Hong Kong, and reasonable rates for accommodations have been arranged.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in the GNOME.Asia 2012 bidding process, especially the great work from Team GNOME Hong Kong and Team GNOME Indonesia. We look forward to working with you more in the future!
