Conference presentation is probably the fastest growing software suite in the world. Its potential is limitless, and it is seen by many as the most plausible alternative to current commercial office automation software suites (guess which). Its main advantages lie in its use of open standards and formats and in the community of developers and users that stand behind it and support it. Since 2000, when Sun Microsystems Inc. first released the source code to the public, there have been at least 42 million downloads of the application and source.

The conference, organized by the Slovenian and Italian project teams in collaboration with LUGOS (Linux User Group Of Slovenia) and LugTS (Linux User Group Trieste), follows the successes of the last two years OOoCon 2003 in Hamburg and OOoCon 2004 in Berlin and is intended to bring together all people who are interested in the development, deployment and use of the software suite. The first part of the program will cover topics such as development and in education, for those interested in the community and the project itself, whereas the last part of the conference will be focused on the end-users and the use of in public administration and enterprises.

Keynotes include those by Prof.Giancarlo Succi, who is managing the Cospa Project which is a Consortium aims at analysing the effects of the introduction of Open Data Standards (ODS) and Open Source (OS) software for personal productivity and document management in European PAs; Tim Bray, Director of Web Technologies at Sun Microsystems and co-chair of the IETF AtomPub Working Group
