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:

Apache OpenOffice at FOSDEM 2013

Many OpenOffice community members will be attending FOSDEM, one of the most important Free Software and Open Source events in Europe, in Brussels next weekend.

Apache OpenOffice has a dedicated track (devroom) on Saturday 2 February, all day. The devroom schedule includes talks from experienced full-time developers and new volunteers, spanning all development-related topics around OpenOffice: deep technical previews and live demos of what is coming in version 4.0, tutorials on scripting and programming Apache OpenOffice, development-related use cases and tips and tricks for developers of extensions and writing aids.

Hackers who want to test their skills on OpenOffice shouldn't miss the Hacking Apache OpenOffice session, where experienced professional and volunteer OpenOffice developers will give advice on the best ways to get started. And the next step will be to tackle one of our easy or simple development tasks...

If you are interested in knowing more on Apache OpenOffice and the plans for version 4.0, just drop by the Apache OpenOffice stand. Volunteers will be there all day on both Saturday 2 February and Sunday 3 February. See you in Brussels!
