About OpenDoc Society

OpenDoc Society brings together individuals and organisations with a stake or interest in the openness and future of documents to learn from each other and share knowledge - about core technologies, available tools, policy issues, transition strategies, legal aspects and of course the latest innovations. Whether you are a developer, publisher, decision maker, educator, vendor, IT manager, academic, writer, archivist or just an involved citizen - OpenDocSociety.org brings you together with interesting like-minded people to learn from and cooperate with. OpenDoc Society is supported by a significant number of organisations.

 The initiative for OpenDoc Society was taken in 2007 by a number of individuals from various sectors of society, including science, education and research, software vendors, open source communities, arts and government. We are open to new countries and organisations to join. OpenDoc Society wants to build local human networks of experts and stakeholders in ODF from all areas. It want to be a leading organisation in spreading knowledge about ODF to society at large, through publications, workshops, masterclasses, tutorials for developers, decision makers, users and other stakeholders. It wants to foster and strengthen the ecosystem around ODF: from enterprise content management, assistive software for the visually impaired up to readers for cell phones and game consoles.
