Here is a quick update about where we stand with the planned conference
Organizers of the openSUSE + LibreOffice Conference
<https://events.opensuse.org/conferences/oSLO> had a meeting this week
to discuss various topics surrounding COVID19 and how it may affect the
conference and planning for it.
At this point, it is uncertain what restrictions governments may keep in
place in the coming months. While October is some months away, there are
many aspects we are considering as to how to run the openSUSE +
Travel restrictions, flights, hotel and venue availability, event
capacity and our community members’ ability to attend the conference are
all factors we are considering. We hope to make a decision about the
conference at the latest by mid-June.
In these difficult times, we want to assure our communities that we are
actively engaged in a good outcome for all members, sponsors and
interested parties involved with a successful openSUSE + LibreOffice
Conference. We are looking at alternatives for the conference like
possibly doing a virtual conference and exploring what tools might help
us to achieve this should we decide it’s a viable option.
Please remember that the Call for Papers is open and people can submit
their talks until July 21 at events.opensuse.org
. We are moving forward,
assuming the conference will take place as planned from Oct. 13 - 16 and
will keep our communities informed of any decisions we make regarding
the plans for the conference and any alternatives options like a virtual
conference. Stay safe, healthy and strong during these hard times and we
hope to see all of you later this year; celebrating together our
anniversary under much better circumstances!
