Efficient Management of Multiple Websites in One Single Platform
(Julio Camarero, Liferay Spain)
Every website built on the Liferay platform allows us to easily manage pages, applications and content in a unified way and providing a well polished user experience. Liferay is remarkable for providing a natural way of managing not only one but hundreds or thousands of web sites in a single installation. This presentation will demonstrate how to manage efficiently multiple web sites in one installation thanks to Site Templates and how to manage multiple teams of editors working on different versions of a site with a Staging environment.

How Liferay Came to Life in VIPnet
(Ivan Krnic, CROZ d.o.o and Blaženka Čaušić, VIPnet d.o.o.)
Vipnet is one of two largest Croatian telecoms. Known by its focus toward technology-oriented users looking for fast and reliable information, namely business users and Generation Y, Vipnet uses the internet portal as its main communication channel. In 2009, a successful effort was made to migrate the internet portal to Liferay platform. This presentation will explain the reasons that led to the selection of Liferay as a weapon of choice, outline migration efforts and give an overview of Liferay as a development platform in the days to come.

Advanced Forms
(Zoltán Dibó, Webtown Informatika Kft.)
In non-social business environment, forms are often the only way to get information from the users through websites. This type of data collection can be very effective, if the form UI is deliberate and free of unnecessary parts, and if we are supported by a good system in the background that helps us achieve these goals. This presentation will demonstrate such a product that brings us more than just effective data collection, but data processing with messaging, e-signature and more exciting features.

Mass Data Processing with Liferay - The Case of Visual Information
(László Gulyas, Aitia International Inc.)
We are living in the Age of Information. The amount of information we and our companies have to deal with exceeds every limit previously seen in history. Liferay is a wonderful platform to build applications that help dealing with this overload for both professional and personal use. This talk will briefly overview the directions of mass data processing, from business intelligence and data mining, via semantic information processing and text mining, to the handling and processing of visual content (i.e., images and videos). Special focus will be given to the third tier: to solutions that help Liferay users to navigate the continuously growing tide of electronic images and videos. We will demonstrate how images can be automatically clustered into similarity folders or how images similar to a sample can be found. In the end we will discuss the extension of these applications to video content stored in Liferay applications.

Dashboarding with Liferay
(Marko Cikos, OptimIT d.o.o.)
Dashboards can be considered as rich GUI sets of data visualizations. This paper describes advantages and challenges of using Liferay layouts and portlets as building blocks for dashboards. The main challenge and emphasis is not on providing visually attractive dashboard, but rather on achieving satisfying interactivity and configurability of dashboard elements. Many of Liferay core features are usable for intended purpose, such as custom layouts, instancing of portlets, configuration of custom preferences and portlets interaction API. Paper describes design requirements of portlets as well as behavior patterns when portlets are placed in greater number on the same page. Demo provides showcase of quick portlet placement, setup and interaction. Conclusion brings comparison of development cost with options of developing custom dashboard in single portlet and using complete dashboard products.
