IWEEE is not a pure technical conference. It will focus on the human factor and in raising awareness about the actual situation. We will discuss the tools that we can provide today to doctors and institutions to improve their habitants health and education.

The workshop promotes Free Software as one of the main pillars for a sustainable framework for providing e-health and education for the developing and least developed countries.

IWEEE 2011 Brazil will be held during Latinoware in Itaipu. Latinoware 2011 will present the main novelties and matters of importance in the world of open source software for Latin America.So, during these two days you will have the opportunity to go to both events, and get the latest about Free Software.

There will not be parallel conferences. All delegates will be able to assist and participate in the workshops that they find of interest. Communication among delegates is key.
