LibreOffice Conference to be held in Paris this October
First annual project meeting from October 12th to 15th

The Document Foundation today announced the first annual LibreOffice Conference, which will be held in Paris from October 12th to 15th. Carrying on the tradition of previous OOoCon conferences, the LibreOffice Conference will be the event for those interested in the development of free office productivity software, open standards, and the OpenDocument format generally.

"We're proud of what we have achieved so far with LibreOffice and The Document Foundation. We are seeing a rapidly-growing ecosystem built on free software, and the LibreOffice Conference will be an exciting opportunity to meet our Community members, developers and hackers," says Charles Schulz, Steering Committee member of The Document Foundation and one of the organizers of this year's conference. "Paris has long been a strong supporter of free software and, following a fantastic release party in 2008, plans for another event in Paris were already being made during the last OOoCon. So, we're happy to announce our first conference taking place in the heart of France."

The LibreOffice Conference will host several tracks on various aspects of LibreOffice, including adoption, migration, development and interoperability. More information about the venue and a call for papers will be available soon.

The location for the LibreOffice Conference in 2012 will be decided by the Community in an open Call for Locations process, details about which will be announced soon.

About The Document Foundation

The Document Foundation has the mission of facilitating the evolution of the LibreOffice Community into a new, open, independent, and meritocratic organization over the next few months. An independent foundation is a better reflection of the values of our contributors, users and supporters, and will enable a more effective, efficient and transparent community. TDF will protect past investments by building on the achievements of the first decade, will encourage wide participation within the community, and will co-ordinate activity across the community.
