LibreOffice Community announces broad program for its Berlin conference

Tracks on development, marketing, migration and community success
The Document Foundation to host official ODF Plugfest and ODF

The LibreOffice community today announces the program for its Berlin
conference (October 17th to 19th). Taking place at the conference
center of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi),
and sponsored by leading players Canonical, Google and SerNet, it is
not only the annual gathering of the worldwide community, but also
meeting point for governmental and corporate adopters and innovators.

"With three tracks in parallel, plus the ODF Plugfest, including ODF
Plugtesting, this years' LibreOffice Conference is the major event
for everyone interested in the development of free office suites and
the OpenDocument ecosystem at large", says Volker Merschmann, member
of the program comittee.

Jacqueline Rahemipour, lead organizer from the host Freies Office
Deutschland e.V., states: "Our program reflects the broad engagement
and diversity of the community, and includes talks and workshops
from various areas of the project. Interested users, developers,
marketeers, as well as corporate and governmental adopters are
invited to come to Berlin, to exchange ideas and jointly work on
shaping the future of free office suites."

Interested participants are required to register no later than
October 8th at http://conference.libreoffice.org/registration

Following the project's principles, the conference system has been
implemented exclusively using free software. Board member Andreas
Mantke has been developing an addon, based on Dexterity for the
Plone CMS.
