Lyon chosen as site for OOoCon 2006
OpenOffice.org members last week selected Lyon, France, as the location of the next OpenOffice.org Conference, or OOoCon. In previous years, OOoCon has been held in Koper, Slovenia (2005), Berlin, Germany (2004), and Hamburg, Germany (2003). This year's conference is tentatively scheduled for mid-September.
"The conference is an important event; it allows developers and other contributors to meet each other, business and government representatives to learn about OpenOffice.org, and the community to exchange ideas. It's also a lot of fun," an OpenOffice.org spokesman said.
A call for papers will be going out shortly, he added. DesktopLinux.com will have details at that time.
