Call for talks: Open Document Editors Devroom at FOSDEM 15

FOSDEM 15 will be held at the ULB Campus Solbosch on Saturday, January 31, and Sunday, February 1st, 2015.

Open document editors are coming again to FOSDEM with a shared devroom which gives every project in this area a chance to present ODF related developments and innovations. The devroom is jointly organized by Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

We invite submission of talks for the Open Document Editors devroom, to be held on Saturday, January 31, from 10AM to 6PM.

Length of talks should be limited to 20 minutes, as we would like to have questions after each presentation, and to fit as many presenters as possible in the schedule. Exceptions must be explicitly requested and justified.

Technical talks (code, extensions, localization, QA, tools and adoption related cases) about open document editors or the ODF document format are welcome.

Submissions must be done by the speakers using the Pentabarf system:
https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM15

While filing your proposal, please provide the title of your talk, a short abstract (one or two paragraphs), some information about yourself (name, bio and photo, but please do remember that your profile might be already stored at Pentabarf) and specify what topic (Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice, other ODF editors, ODF in general...) your talk is about.

You do not need to create a new account if you already have one. If the password has been lost, you can easily recover it.

The deadline is Sunday, December 14, 2014. Accepted speakers will be notified by December 28, 2014.

You can send any questions to the devroom mailing list:
open-document-devroom-AT-lists.fosdem-DOT-org

Comments:

I am uninstalling OpenOffice because the project still uses SourceForge as hosting service and SourceForge distributes "bundled" spyware/adware with their fake installer. Even if OpenOffice as not agreed with this policy and the installer is safe, I strongly suggest to stop using SourceForge.
