There’s an interesting ODF shindig happening early next week in Germany. The ODF Workshop taking place in Berlin is touted as the first international OpenDocument Format user workshop. Sponsored by the German Federal Foreign Office in collaboration with the ODF Alliance, of which Novell is a member, the workshop is designed for government entities that are either already using open document formats, or interested in deploying them. A look at the agenda indicates a fairly hands-on event, with sessions on ODF Migration, deployment in municipalities, application support, and other issues organizations considering ODF would want to know about. Participants are representatives from various levels of government, with a number of open source vendors, including Novell, acting as panel moderators.
This should be a good event to get the pulse on ODF adoption in Europe.
