If you also proposed OCA-related talks, please reply. There is nothing worse than having the same 2 talks.

I plan to propose a talk on my work on electronic invoices

But it will probably be a wider talk named "Fully automated accounting with Odoo" or "Odoo, the perfect tool for lazy accountants" where I would present :
1) creation and import of electronic invoices (ZUGFeRD, etc...)
2) import of "regular" PDF invoices
3) the OCA modules for the cut-off of prepaid expenses and prepaid revenue ; and the module the accuals
4) generation of electronic PO / import of electronic SO
5) a great solution to automate expense notes (in particular all the small credit cards payments at restaurants, travel tickets, parking, taxi, etc...)

The points 1) and 2) are already developped and work very well. Point 3 still needs improvements (prepaid expenses and prepaid revenue work well ; we still need to improve accruals). Point 4) and 5) are in my short-term roadmap. I think that we are now very close to transform the work accoutants with Odoo to the point where manual creation of account moves will be a bad souvenir of the past and where all accounting entries will be generated automatically and where manual encoding of supplier invoices and customer orders will also be something of the past ! I am very enthousiastic about it ! I must say I was a bit disappointed by the very small adoption of my work on PDF invoice import and electronic invoices in the Odoo community ; that's why I really need to spread the word in the Odoo community to boost adoption and I hope this talk will help.

The only problem is that it's probably too much in a single talk to show these 5 points... so many things to say and demo !
