Dear all,

here is a draft invitation for the Berlin plugfest. If all is okay, we can send it out tomorrow. Please send me your comments.


- ---------------------

Dear recipient,

I have the pleasure to invite you on behalf of OpenDoc Society to participate in the 9th ODF Plugfest, a two day interoperability event on October 17th/18th 2012 kindly hosted by Bundesmin. fuer Wirtschaft und Technologie. The event is held in conjunction with the annual LibreOffice Conference, also to held in Berlin at the same venue.

The ODF plugfests are a platform where different stakeholders around Open Document Format join together to combine their knowledge and technical experience on the details of ODF to improve product, interoperability and in the end, customer satisfaction.and the available software systems supporting this standard. Previous plugfests have proven to be a useful instrument for vendors to evaluate the interoperability between each other's product in a private setting.

On the first day a series of presentations will update you on the status of ODF, new R&D projects and lessons learned in implementations. On the second day the actual testing will take place with vendors and users going through several scenarios for creating and importing ODF documents. Sitting side by side, the compatibility of documents between applications in these scenario's can be easily checked and openly discussed in the privacy of the workshop.

It's essential to have all stakeholders with an interest in ODF engaged in furthering the implementation of ODF. We hope that you will send a delegation, as well as participate directly in the process.
Past experience has shown developers and technical management from larger and smaller vendors as well as community leaders have valued the chance to attend and work on real world interoperability.

There are still some sponsor opportunities to help make the event even more attractive. There is no fee required to participate in the ODF plugfest, courtesy of OpenDoc Society. Would you be so kind as to inform us if you and/or other representatives from your organisation plan to attend this event or not?

*Please note that we need to have your registration before October 8th 2012, due to the strong security regulations at the ministry building later admissions may not be able to participate.*

If you have any questions, need assistance with a visa application, inquire about sponsor opportunities or just need more details, we will gladly help you out. Please contact plugtest-organisers at opendocsociety.org or visit: http://odfplugfest.org

We hope to see you in Berlin!
