JabCon 2017 - JabRef Conference in Lugano


(Matthias Geiger ) #1

As in the last year we’ll host a small conference - or meet-up - called JabCon.

From Wednesday, February 15, 2017 (13:00) to Friday, February 17, 2017 (12:00) the core developers and users of JabRef will meet in Lugano (Switzerland) to discuss the future directions of JabRef.
The conference is intended for both, users and developers of JabRef, as we want to strengthen the network between users, between users and developers, and between the developers. The result of the conference should be new ideas for JabRef, fixed bugs, and newly implemented features.

The sessions are subdivided into talks, workshops, and hacking sessions.

The main focus this year is the next technological step that will take place with the next release: We will gradually replace the complete user interface by a new technology called Java FX. First dialogs are already implemented, but there is still much to do.

If you are interested in participating check out the details and the schedule on the JabCon page here.

If you can’t make it to Lugano, you could also join use via Skype or propose your ideas here at the discussion forum!

We would also be pleased if you would help us to reduce our traveling and accommodation expenses by supporting us through donations. Thank you!

In case you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us!

See you in Lugano!
