Open Source advocates have until Friday, February 4, to submit papers to the inaugural OpenOffice.org Miniconf to be held in Canberra in April.
The Miniconf will be run over two days on 18-19 April and precedes the four-day linux.conf.au 2005 (LCA) at the Australian National University.
The OpenOffice.org Miniconf is the first conference of its type to be held in the southern hemisphere, said Jacqueline McNally, Lead, OpenOffice.org marketing project.
According to McNally, presentations will take on two major themes for the conference - User and Community, and Development.
Some of the suggested areas of interest for presentations are: case studies showing OpenOffice.org implementation or integration; Integrating OpenOffice.org into other software packages; OpenOffice.org API, and languages and Quality Assurance of OpenOffice.org.
