Join Apache OpenOffice at FOSDEM 2014 - Submit a talk proposal

Apache OpenOffice and the other Open Document Editors will have a dedicated track at FOSDEM 2014, 1 February 2014, Brussels. The devroom is organized by Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice and will give every project in this area a chance to present ODF related developments and innovations.

We invite submission of talks for the Open Document Editors devroom, to be held on Saturday, February 1st, from 10AM to 6PM. Submission deadline is Sunday, 22 December 2013.

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 significant adoption related cases) about Apache OpenOffice, other open document editors or the ODF format are welcome.

Submissions must be done using the Pentabarf system:


While filing your proposal, please add a few lines about yourself (although your profile might already be stored at Pentabarf) and specify what product or topic (Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice, both, other editor, ODF in general...) your talk is about.

The deadline is Sunday, December 22, 2013. Accepted speakers will be notified by January 5, 2014.

You can send any questions to the OpenOffice dev list or 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!
