Subject Fwd: OpenOffice track at ApacheCon Europe - next steps
Date Mon, 23 Jul 2012 21:31:51 GMT
Looks like the AOOCon "conference within a conference" proposal was
accepted. The Call For Papers for the larger conference has begun.  So
we need to set up a conference webpage and start publicizing this


1) Simple one page web site for conference that we can put at  This will require some simple HTML (or
Markdown text) work, along with a opening a ticket with Infra@ to
redirect the URL.  Do we need a conference logo?  Or just use the
project one?

2) Page would link to the CFP, registration info, etc.  Would also
link to a wiki page where we can further develop the schedule for the
two days, e.g., when we have normal sessions versus hack fests, etcs.

3) Publicize the above via a blog post, twitter, Google+ Facebook and
a note to the AOO announcement list (around 9000 subscribers).

Any thing else?

Any volunteers for any of the above?

Subject: OpenOffice track at ApacheCon Europe - next steps

Hi All

As you hopefully all know, a proposal for a several day long
OpenOffice track at ApacheCon europe was submitted, ideally for a
"conference within a conference", which was accepted.

The Call For Papers for ApacheCon Europe is now open, and we've
included the OpenOffice track in this. (Hopefully that's ok with you,
it certainly makes things simpler for us to keep everything in the
same system). It would be great if you could advertise this CFP to
your wider community, to invite submissions for talks. If you need
advise or sample emails for this, please drop and note to and we can point you to some of the other
announcements. We'll have details on the reviewing process for
submissions shortly.

Otherwise, the next steps are to start building up website for your
"conference within a conference", and for your community to decide
what to put on beyond the talks for which you receive submissions
(such as, but not limited to, hackathons, discussions, meetups etc).
The website could be a subsite within the main ApacheCon Europe
site[1], or hosted as part of your own website, that's up to you.

We have a site visit planned for this coming week, at which we'll be
clarifying a lot of the questions around space and the venue, which
will hopefully help with your plans.

Otherwise, if you have any queries, is
the place to ask them, and also the list that at least some of you
should be following for the remainder of the conference planning!
