March 2019 Newsletter

[OW2 Newsletter - March 2019 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

Our new Board of Directors is now elected. Our appreciation goes to the candidates who volunteered to sit on this year’s Board. The next step, launched on March 1st, will conclude with the election of the Chairperson on March 21. Please note that our General Assembly will be held on Wednesday, March 21 via web conferencing. Check out the link on our Governance page.

The OW2con’19 Call For Presentations is open until March 17, 2019. Please note the deadline and do not leave your submission to the last minute! We are still working on some great ideas for this year’s conference. Save the date for OW2con'19, June 12-13, and check out our attractive sponsorship opportunities! Sponsorship helps to make an even better conference.

You are probably aware that, in addition to its own, OW2 runs the tweeter feeds of five collaborative projects. Click on these links to follow STAMP and CROSSMINER, and our three new projects DECODER, FASTEN and ReachOut.

I’m delighted to introduce Pierre-Yves Gibello, a long-time friend of OW2 and highly experienced developer who is joining the Management Office to give us a hand with the collaborative projects. Welcome Pierre-Yves! On another note, The Document Foundation is now an Associate Organisation of OW2. We look forward to greater collaboration with them. Stay tuned!

Thanking you for your on-going support!

Cedric Thomas
