The annual KDE World Summit, aKademy, has found a home for 2007 in the vibrant city of Glasgow. The week-long event for contributors to the leading Free Desktop project will be held from 30th June to 7th July 2007 in Scotland's largest city. Our hosts will be the Department of Computer & Information Sciences at the University of Strathclyde. There are three sub-events: a contributors conference, the KDE e.V. annual general assembly and a week long hacking session that offers the opportunity to discuss all sorts of things face-to-face. We also look forward to the chance to mingle with local KDE enthusiasts.
A local team led by Kenny Duffus will organise the conference, where KDE enthusiasts from around the world will converge to share experiences, code and socialise in "Scotland's friendly city". "As a long time user of KDE, on both student and staff desktops, we are proud to support KDE by hosting this conference" said Richard Connor, Head of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences at the University of Strathclyde.
