Apache OpenOffice (formerly is coming again to FOSDEM, for the first time as an Apache Top-Level Project. Our community has a new structure, friendly and open, and new developers are especially welcome.

We invite submissions of talks for the Apache OpenOffice devroom, to be held on Saturday, 2 February, 9.00 to 17.30.

If you have something interesting to say about Apache OpenOffice or the ODF format from a technical point of view (code, extensions, localization, QA, tools... but also less known functions or creative ways to use the program) please share it with us!

It doesn't need to be long or serious. Funny contributions are welcome as well. Just make sure to specify an estimated length for your talk, as well as a proposed title, description and a few lines about yourself.

The deadline is Sunday, 23 December. Accepted talks will be published by January 10. Limited funding may be available for accepted speakers in need.

Please add your talk proposals to this page:

You can send any questions to our development mailing list:
