Paris, September 19, 2011 - The Document Foundation announces the
program of the first LibreOffice Conference, which will gather over 200
people - members of the project and free software advocates - in Paris
from October 13 to October 15, 2011. The conference - which will be held
in two locations: La Cantine de Silicon Sentier and the IRILL (Institut
de Recherche du Logiciel Libre, or free software research institute) -
is sponsored by: Cap Digital, IRILL and Région Île-de-France (Premium
Sponsors); Canonical, Google, La Mouette, Novell/SUSE and RedHat (Gold

On October 12, La Cantine will be open in the afternoon for registration
and for a meeting of TDF Steering Committee, followed by a public Q&A
session open to members of The Document Foundation and conference
attendees. In the evening at 7 pm, Cap Digital will organize a welcome
cocktail at their headquarters near the Bastille.

On October 13, the conference will start with a welcome address from the
region authorities and the organizing committee, followed by TDF keynote
speech summarizing the project achievements during the first year:
development, infrastructure, community and marketing. The following
presentations will be split into four different tracks, focused - again
- on development, community, marketing and ODF, plus a technical
"bird-of-feather" session. The program is available at

The conference will continue in the evenings with get-together events,
where the international community will have the opportunity to meet and
mingle: on October 13 at 7 pm, there will be the Île-de-France Region
special evening, with several keynotes and announcements; while on
