Edinburgh, UK (PRWEB) June 18, 2007

The OpenOffice.org Community - responsible for the leading free software alternative to Microsoft Office - has published the draft Programme for its annual Conference. Following a big surge of interest, the Conference has been extended to three full days. Conference topics include technical presentations and workshops for developers, case histories from around the world, future product developments, how to get involved in the Community, and hints and tips for users. There is a special focus this year reflecting the growing interest in OpenOffice.org extensions and components - adding 'plug in' features to OpenOffice.org and using OpenOffice technology in other applications.

The draft Conference Programme provides abstracts and speaker biographies for the 60 conference sessions. With registration opening later this week, people interested in attending are urged to visit the Conference web site,
download the draft Programme, and start making their travel plans.
