Linux News Today: KDE's 2016 Conference to Take Place in Rajasthan, India on March 5-6

On January 6, 2016, KDE announced that the upcoming 2016 conference for KDE developers will take place this Spring, between March 5-6, at Jaipur in Rajasthan, India.

The KDE project wants to continue the success it had with the previous events, which for the last two years were held in different locations of India. While 2014 took place at DA-IICT (Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Community Technology) in the land of Gujarat, the 2015 event was held at Amritapuri in Kerala.

This year, the 2016 event will take place at the LNM Institute of Information Technology (LNMIIT), which is located on the outskirts of Jaipur, Rajasthan, and offers a gorgeous 100 acres green campus where the KDE developers will meet for two days, on March 5 and March 6, 2016, to talk about the future of the open source KDE desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating systems.

“ 2016 will promote the spirit of free and open source software (FOSS) and offer ideas to build awareness about FOSS culture at the college level, when most technology students have their first experience with Open Source. The emphasis will be on KDE technology and Qt, the popular cross-platform application framework,” reads the announcement.

Presentations can be submitted now

With this occasion, the KDE developers who would like to attend the 2016 conference in Spring are informed that they can now submit a paper to explain the content for a presentation, which should be no longer than 30 minutes. The presentation can be about KDE, Qt or any other FOSS-related project, but please try to keep in mind that the proposal submission period will be closed on February 1, 2016.

Starting with 2016, the organizers would like to create new environments that are friendly to new KDE users who want to get started with one of the most acclaimed open source desktop environments for Linux kernel-based operating systems. The event will also offer hands-on session and demonstrations, as well as dozens of talks about KDE and Qt technologies.

In related news, we reported earlier that the third maintenance release of the KDE Plasma 5.5 desktop environment, Plasma 5.5.3, is now available for select GNU/Linux distribution, bringing over 20 bugfixes. Also, we told you the release dates for the next major version, the KDE Plasma 5.6 desktop environment, and its maintenance releases.
