The LibreOffice Conference 2020 will be an event to remember, for a couple of reasons: it will be the 10th in a series of successful conferences, and it will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the LibreOffice project and the 20th of the FOSS office suite. In 2020, The Document Foundation will be on stage at many FOSS events around the world, and the LibreOffice Conference will be the most important of the year. Organizing this conference is a unique opportunity for FOSS communities, because the event will make the history of free open source software.
So far, LibreOffice Conferences have been organized in Paris, October 2011; Berlin, October 2012; Milan, September 2013; Bern, September 2014; Aarhus, September 2015; Brno, September 2016; Rome, October 2017; Tirana, September 2018, and Almeria, September 2019.
The Call for Location for LibreOffice Conference 2020 is open until June 30, 2019. TDF’s Board of Directors wants to to give next year’s event organizers the opportunity to attend this year’s conference in Almeria, Spain, September 11 to 13, 2019, to familiarize with the community and the structure of the event. For historical and practical reasons, the LibreOffice Conference takes place between September and November, with a preference for September.
