The Extremadura region (not to be confused with the Estremadura region of Portugal) is an administrative region of Spain, located in the South-western part of the country.

It is made of the two provinces: Badajoz and Cáceres.

The worksessions can be held at three different places:
 * [http://www.creofonte.com/ Creofonte building] in Casar de Cáceres, near Cáceres. [http://people.debian.org/~bubulle/caceres.png Map]

The Junta de Extremadura can fund up to 20 people, preferrably european attendees. The lodging strictly limits the number of people to 20, though.

Travel is included: in particular ticket from airport of origin to Madrid. A shuttle or something similar will take attendees from the airport to the Creofonte building.

Local organizers take care of booking the tickets: attendees will receive an electronic ticket number via email; this ticket code, and the passport are ''all'' you need in the check-in area.

'''''names given in the booking and in the passport must match *exactly*. Order of names, spelling, capitalisation etc do make a difference. If they don't match people seem to be rather inflexible -> no ticket'''''

If you're not traveling alone (wife/children/friend/whoever) it's going to be easier if you book the ticket by yourself and you will be refunded. Reimbursement can take between 1-3 months.

'''Tickets are top priority''': the sooner you give your details the better.

The Creofonte building has 11 rooms, 2 of them are individuals with facilities for disabled people, in two floors. Most of the rooms are triple. I think there's only one double. So, the maximum capacity is 28 people. Each
room has its own bathroom, with shower, etc. The climatization is central in the building. Each room also has chairs and a work table, phone and TV. Check
