"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.

The Document Foundation
The Document Foundation is an open, independent, self-governing, meritocratic organization, which builds on ten years of dedicated work by the OpenOffice.org Community. TDF was created in the belief that the culture born of an independent foundation brings out the best in corporate and volunteer contributors, and will deliver the best free office suite. TDF is open to any individual who agrees with its core values and contributes to its activities, and warmly welcomes corporate participation, e.g. by sponsoring individuals to work as equals alongside other contributors in the community. As of today, TDF has over 130 members and over 2,000 volunteers and contributors worldwide.
