Regional Government of Extremadura (Junta de Extremadura) will organize
the II Free Software International Conference in Mérida (Badajoz) -
International Meeting about Free Knowledge

The Regional Governments of Extremadura (Junta de Extremadura) and
Andalucía (Junta de Andalucía) will organize the II Free Software
Internacional Conference in Mérida (Extremadura, Spain) during the days
of October, 25th and 26th 2005 and this will continue in Andalucía
througout the whole 2006.

The aim of this Conference will try to show Free Software as a reality
due to the fact that it has grown to currently become one of the most
successful solutions because it's a solid, powerful and safety solution.
And it's advisable to bet on it  when we are building Information
Systems of any organizations.

In the framework of this II Free Software International Conference will
receive the International Meeting about Free Knowledge where the main
representatives  of different projects and movements related to the
share of knowledge worldwide will be. During this event, gnuLinEx'2005
will be launched (the brand-new edition of the Extremadura's Operative
System) As well as, there will be loads and loads of activities steered
to empower the relationships among the organizations who already firmly
bet for Free Technologies.

The support given throughout all this time to the use of this kind of
software by the different organizations and institutions, emphasizing
the role of  Extremadura and Andalucía as pioneers in the adoption,
support and devlopment of Free Software in the Public Administrations
(Goverments) in Europe, has drawn it of the Scientific and Experimental
Fields, putting it to the reach of the citizens.

Further on the technic aspects, Free Software promotes an attitude above
all, sharing knowledge, and it becomes in an ideal engine for innovation
and development. 

>From that point of view, free software enhances a sort of well-known
advantages, such as a support of investigation tool above all. So we can
state that Free Software provides the advance of Science.

In other aspects, free software favours and speeds up the innovation,
due to the fact that its development never starts from zero, there's
always generated knowledge around it that can be well-spent to generate
a new knowledge or just to improve the existing yet favouring, hence,
the innovation process. 

Extremadura, in the development of its Information Society Global
Strategy, it's applying free software in all fields (Education,
companies, citizens...) with the firm conviction that the use of this
kind of software on behalf of the Public Administrations (Governments)
it's a question of rational and efficient use of public funds more than
anything, and it's a question of rights as well, since it guarantees
 the access of all the citizens to this technology, pure knowledge on
equal terms. 

This is the Second Edition of this Intenational Conference who was
launched last year in the andalusian city of Málaga where the audience
was more than 4000 people.
