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.
