The Document Foundation invites all members and contributors to submit talks, lectures and workshops for this year's LibreOffice Conference in Luxembourg. The event will take place from October 10 to 12 with an informal community meeting on October 9. Whether you are a seasoned presenter or have never spoken in public before, if you have something interesting to share about LibreOffice, the Document Liberation Project or the ODF Toolkit, we want to hear from you!
