Conference Sessions

Akademy 2012 officially starts on Saturday, 30 June. Some details of the Akademy 2012 schedule are still being worked on. The full schedule will be announced when it is ready.

The first two days of Akademy have presentations on topics of interest to the KDE Community. The presentations range from highly technical to legal issues to community to accessibility and localization. And the presenters come from all over the world. The preliminary schedule is shown below.

The remainder of Akademy is available for hands-on activities—workshops, Birds of a Feather sessions (BoFs), and intensive hacking. Months worth of work gets done in a few days. Akademy is the place to be for those who are committed to software freedom and innovation.

Register now. And book accommodations soon; Akademy 2012 takes place at the peak of the beautiful vacation season in Estonia.



Dr. Mathias Klang "Freedom of Expression"
Dr. Will Schroeder "It has a heart, a brain and it's dangerous."
