  8. More than 30 events already registered in South-America, Africa,
  9. Europe, Asia, and Oceania

  12. This year's DFD is approaching fast, and we can already say that we
  13. will have had a good year: More than 30 events have been registered in
  14. South-America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Oceania. However, both we and
  15. you could do a lot better, and there is still time to register and
  16. organise an event. North-America, Africa, Oceania, and Asia
  17. desperately need more events. Also, while Central Europe is well
  18. covered, Europe's western, eastern, and northern parts could do with
  19. additional events. To organise an event, you can gather ideas from the
  20. highlighted events below, or take a look at our
  21. <a href="">events page</a>.

  23. <h2>DFD conference in European Parliament</h2>
  24. <p>
  25. The Greens/EFA parliamentary group is organising a DFD conference with
  26. speakers from the European Commission, FSFE, April, Calibre, Communia,
  27. and Bookeen on the 28th of March. The conference will focus on Open
  28. Standards in the e-book market.
  29. </p>
  30. <h2>DFD prizes</h2>
  31. <p>
  32. On the 26th of March, FSFE will award the Slovak Committee for
  33. Standardization of Information Systems of Public Administration to
  34. recognize adoption of Open Standards for the entire Slovak public
  35. administration. On the 31st of March, the city administration of
  36. Arezzo, Italy will be awarded by the FSFE for their adoption of Open
  37. Standards within the administration services and their communications
  38. with the citizens.
  39. </p>
  40. <h2>Installation parties</h2>
  41. <p>
  42. Several events include LibreOffice installation parties. We would
  43. recommend all event organisers to make GNU/Linux and LibreOffice
  44. installation media available along with technical support. However, if
  45. the event you plan to attend does not include an installation party,
  46. you can always ask one of the attendees using Free Software for help
  47. with the installation: They are usually really nice people.
  48. </p>
  49. <h2>Other possible activities</h2>
  50. <p>
  51. It is also possible to post posters across your town or city, hand out
  52. materials about Open Standards in your local library or school, give
  53. talks on Open Standards and Free Software, write a piece about the DFD
  54. for your local newspaper, or simply support DFD by attending an event.
  55. </p>
  56. <p>
  57. Should you now have a nice idea about what to organise on the DFD,
  58. contact <a href="">the DFD team</a>,
  59. and
  60. we can offer you advice, limited financial support, and add your event
  61. to the list.
