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.
