LCA 2006 OpenOffice.org Miniconf - Call For Participation

This is a call for participation in the second OpenOffice.org Miniconf
which will be part of the LCA 2006 conference in Dunedin, New Zealand.
The Miniconf will be run over two days on the 23rd and 24th January 2006
preceding the LCA 2006 main conference.

Presentations, case studies and tutorials will follow two major themes
- User and Community, and Development. We expect this second
OpenOffice.org Miniconf to be an interesting two days as speakers
showcase the latest version of OpenOffice.org and the implementation of
the OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument).

Any topic is allowed based around the OpenOffice.org office productivity
software. Some of the suggested areas of interest for presentations are:

* Particular features within OpenOffice.org and how to use them.
* Case studies showing OpenOffice.org implementation or integration.
* Integrating OpenOffice.org into other software packages.
* Marketing and promotion of OpenOffice.org
* Community participation and planning
* OpenOffice.org API and languages
* OpenOffice.org macro development
* Localisation and Internationalisation of OpenOffice.org
* Asian and complex language interfaces
* OpenOffice.org and Accessibility
* Porting OpenOffice.org to other platforms and architectures
* Quality Assurance of OpenOffice.org
* Demonstration of applicable standards such as OpenDocument
