Title: Practical Office Automation

Subtitle: Extracting and using meta-data from the
          OpenOffice.org/OpenDocument file format

Audience: System administrators, system programmers (primary) and
          information system decision makers (secondary)

I will demonstrate how open file formats like those used by OpenOffice.org
together with a bit of unix shell scripts can make it easier to solve various
practical problems - like making indexes of word processor documents or
blocking information leaks in the firewall/network gateway.
