+               Taming Software Bloat with AdaptableGIMP
+               
+               Ever use software with 100s or 1000s of commands? Ever have a hard time
+               finding the right commands to perform your task? We have. And we have
+               some new ideas on how to deal with software bloat.
+               
+               In this talk, we'll present AdaptableGIMP, a new version of GIMP
+               developed by the HCI Lab here at the University of Watreloo.
+               AdaptableGIMP introduces the notion of crowdsourced interface
+               customizations: Any user of the application can customize the interface
+               for performing a particular task, with that customization instantly
+               shared with all other users through a wiki at adaptablegimp.org. In the
+               talk, we'll demo this new version of GIMP and show how it can help
+               people work faster by simplifying feature-rich, complex user
+               interfaces.
