Europe and Japan Unite for Linux & Free Software

Jun 19, 1999, 13:47 (0 Talkback[s])

Thanks to Jean-Paul Smets for this announcement.

Japanese Linux Associations (JLA, TLUG) and European Linux Associations (AFUL, FFII) together with the French Embassy in Japan are holding the Europe Japan Conference on Linux and Free Software in Tokyo on 6/24 and 6/25.

There will be be many developers and companies from Europe and Japan, including Roxen, MySQL, V-Sync, SuSE, Mandrake, Vine, Just System, KDE project and Namazu. It seems that Bull, the French National computer maker which just announced their Linux support, will introduce their Enterprise Java Beans solution for Linux. The web site also mentions possible announcements of new open source software (electronic commerce?). And some French officials are going to introduce how they use Linux and Free Software successfully in French public administration.

The conference will be very interesting for Japanese as well as US citizens who live in Japan and who want to meet developers and users of Linux and Free Software from all over the world. And a group of European specialists on open source patenting (a hot topic in Europe) and Free Software economy issues will be there. Of course, there are some free tickets for non-profit organisations.
