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

Intro

The good people of one of the larger Debian deployments in the world (80k+ debian boxes) have generously offered to host a number of work meetings for Debian during 2006.

actual meetings

past years

Local contacts

  • Dario Rapisardi, <dario at rapisardi dot org>, <dario.rapisardi at juntaextremadura dot net>, ES

  • César Gómez Martín, <cesar.gomez at gmail dot com> <cesar.gomez at juntaextremadura dot net>, Cáceres, ES

Location

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:

General Debian contact

  • General organisational questions and initial interface with local contacts: Andreas Schuldei <andreas@debian.org>

Peer support

There isn't currently a mailing list set up, but we have #extremadura-2006 irc channel on irc.debian.net.

TODO: check for a current IRC and mailing list info!

Transport

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

Tickets

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 location of the actual meeting.

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.

Visas

Don't need any visa any person coming for less than three months, from the following countries:

Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, El Salvador, Estonia, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Macao, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Poland, Romania, San Maino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Switzerland, United States, Uruguay, and the EU

Any other situation requires a visa, indeed.

Accomodations

  • For the meetings in Merida, the Hotel Velada was used - general Spanish/European Hotel standards apply
