FYI, if anyone is interested, we were not represented last year.

Hi Marc, I tried to, but they did not approve my presentation. I
strongly suspect that there is a strong bias towards another project
based on the prominent role that another foundation is having there (the
president is a regular speaker there).

This year, I have decided to act in a different way: I will prepare a
presentation for POSSCON, but instead of going for the call for papers I
will make a video which will be published online the very same day of
the conference.

LibreOffice has been the fastest growing large FLOSS project over the
last two years. We have been invited to present our story to all major
free software conferences worldwide, and when we have filed a call for
papers it has always been approved with enthusiasm (I am at LinuxCon
Europe now).

If a conference does not accept our call for papers I prefer to ignore
them rather than beg for a presentation. I suppose they are not a true
free software conference if they are not interested in LibreOffice.

On the other hand, by publishing a video of our story, I will give their
attendees the opportunity to learn about LibreOffice even if the
conference ignores TDF.

Best, Italo
