Akademy is the annual world summit of KDE, one of the largest Free Software communities in the world. It is a free, non-commercial event organized by the KDE Community. Akademy 2022 is a hybrid event that takes place in-person in Barcelona, Spain and virtually. We are really excited to meet you again

Akademy 2022 is taking place from Saturday 1st - Friday 7th October, with a Welcome event on the Friday evening before

The conference is expected to draw hundreds of attendees from the global KDE Community to discuss and plan the future of the Community and its technology. Many participants from the broader free and open source software community and users will also attend

Code of Conduct

Akademy 2022 has a Code of Conduct to ensure the event is an enjoyable experience for everyone. As a Community, we value and respect all people, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ability, shape, size or preferred desktop environment. We will not tolerate vilification, abuse or harassment in any form

Covid-19 Mitigation

For the safety of everyone there, those attending in person will need to wear an FFP2/3 mask at all times and in all areas of the venue where we are having Akademy. We will be providing some free masks as well.

This is our baseline level that we will not be going below so that you can plan whether or not you feel it is safe to attend. If circumstances worsen we may also need to put in place additional measures that we will notify as early as possible. There may be some venue staff in the common areas that we don't have control over who may or may not be wearing masks.
