While preparations for aKademy 2006 are in full swing, next year's annual meeting of the KDE community, aKademy 2007, is sending out a Call for Location and Organisation. aKademy is made possible mainly because of financial contributions by corporations. These corporations prepare their budget for 2007 in autumn of 2006, in order to be able to secure funding for aKademy 2007 we need to start organising aKademy 2007 early to be able to apply for sponsorship soon.
The event consists of the general assembly of the KDE e.V., a KDE developer conference and a multi-day hacking session.
If you are interested in hosting this large and exciting free software event, please consider to submit a proposal to the board of the KDE e.V. which will act as co-host. Make sure you read the requirements for the aKademy location which describes what we need from organisers.
If you want to apply as host for aKademy 2007 please submit a concrete proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. This proposal should include information about how the requirements for the location will be addressed, who will be the local organising team and a responsible person acting as contact to the KDE e.V. and head of the local organising team.
The deadline for submitting an aKademy 2007 proposal is August 31 2006.
If there are any questions please feel free to send them to Tink Bastian, she will answer any questions you might have about organising an aKademy at email@example.com or the board of the KDE e.V. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
