All,

The third international OpenOffice.org Conference, OOoCon 2005, will be
held in Koper-Capodistria, Slovenia, this year, from 28-30 September,
and you are invited! Promoted this year as a joint effort by the
Slovenian and Italian OpenOffice.org language projects, the conference
provides the opportunity for the community to meet the developers,
contributors, marketers, and others who are making OpenOffice.org one of
the most important open-source projects and products today.

If you have been thinking about coding for OpenOffice.org and want tips,
now is your chance; curious about OpenOffice.org's XML potential? Want
to write extensions? Plug ins? Then come to the conference!

Indeed if you are not technically minded but want to join a great
community come along and find out why so many people are switching to
OpenOffice.org.

We have posted the call for papers (CFP) and are soliciting
presentations from the general OpenOffice.org community (and then some)
for papers concerning the development of OpenOffice.org to its
marketing; from the global politics of free software to the
technicalities of localizing OpenOffice.org.

To see all the tracks open and to obtain the template for submissions,
as well as to request travel assistance, visit:

250-word abstracts in English must be submitted to
callforpapers@openoffice.org by 10 July 2005. We ask that you use our
template for your abstract. It can be found on the CFP page.
