OOoCon 2007: Open Office Conference in Barcelona

Sep 19, 2007

The Open Office community is currently meeting at the University of Barcelona, Spain. The OOoCon 2007, which ends on Friday, focuses on the free office package and related topics such as Open Document Format.

After a couple of closed sessions by various teams yesterday, the official part of the conference started today. Talks in four parallel tracks center on Open Office in general, developer topics, ODF/XML formats and localization of the office suite for major and regional languages. Catalan is one language that is likely to play an important role; after all Barcelona is the capital of Spain's Catalonia region.

The project has published a list of talks on its website. Some speakers have already published their slides, but don't be disappointed if the file icons don't take you to files yet.

Kyberpipa, the Slovenian multimedia team which specializes in covering Open Source events, is reporting live from the Open Office conference. Video streams are not permanently available right now, however, they will be made available on the site as soon as possible.
