Two exhibitions and conferences will start within a couple of days.
The Debian project has been offered to run a booth on one and will
have a developers meetin on the other.  The events take place in
Brazil and Japan.

  May 29th - 30th: Second International Forum on Free Software
                   (Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil)


                   The first meeting of South-American Debian
                   developers will be held as part of this conference.
                   We have a conference room reserved for the Debian
                   meeting on May 30th, 14:00h - 16:00h.  Five
                   developers from Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay have
                   already confirmed their presence.

  May 30th - June 1st: Linux World Expo Tokyo 2001 (Tokyo, Japan)


                   Debian will be present with a booth as part of
                   ".Org pavilion" sponsored by VA Linux Systems
                   Japan.  Japanese Debian Developpers are planning to
                   show many Debian systems running on various
                   architecture (m68k, mips, arm, sh3, hppa, etc...).

                   A tutorial session titled "Using Debian in
                   corporate and reducing TCO by package management
                   system" will be held at June 1st by Susumu OSAWA.

We invite everybody in these areas to attend the shows and meet Debian
people and people from other Free Software projects there.
