We're very close to eduJAM! 2012, which will take place in May in
Montevideo, Uruguay. This time the summit doesn’t stand on its own but is
accompanied by a number of events which promise to provide enriching
 meeting opportunities.

- *1.edu* (May 7 and 8), organized by Flor de Ceibo. Flor de Ceibo is a
group from the University of the Republic (Universidad de la República)
which has brought together dozens of professors and hundreds of students
from different backgrounds to collaborate on field projects supporting Plan
Ceibal since 2008. This event is focused on discussing the group’s vast
experience together with invited international academics. The entire event
is conducted in Spanish. More information: *http://1.edu.flordeceibo.edu.uy*

- *Conozco** **Uruguay** **Tour* (May 9 and 10), organized by RAP Ceibal.
Red de Apoyo al Plan Ceibal (Support Network for Plan Ceibal) is an
organization of volunteers which has independently worked on supporting
schools and community with a variety of activities (e.g. training and
technical support) since the beginning of Plan Ceibal. For this event there
will be a tour of various schools where Plan Ceibal has been implemented,
visits of classes in small groups, and informal spaces for meeting with
teachers. Volunteers will provide support for participants who only speak
English. More information: *http://cutour.blogspot.com/*

- *eduJAM!* (May 11 and 12) is organized by ceibalJAM!. This is the 2012
edition of the event which last year brought together the international
educational free software community with participants from over 10
countries. The event is focused on – but not limited to  – the OLPC and
Sugar platforms. For developers it’s a space to learn more about these
platforms and discuss their future together with many of the technical heads
behind them. For teachers and users of Sugar it’s an opportunity to dive
deeper into its enormous potential. Simultaneous Spanish/English translation
will be provided. More information, registration, scholarships: *

- *Terrón** Awards* (May 12 at the end of eduJAM!). 20 programs developed by
ceibalJAM! compete in four categories: JamUtility!, JamEducation!, JamFun!,
and JamPupil! and submissions will be judged by a multidisciplinary jury.

- *Sugar** **Code** **Sprint* (May 13 and 14). 48 hours to hack and develop
on Sugar. Together with several giants there will be a special space for
young developers which are fortunately increasing in numbers. More

Registration and submission of contributions is now possible for all of
these events. (For eduJAM! 2011 most participants confirmed their presence
in the last two weeks.)

Scholarships as well as accommodation with local volunteers may be available
for people who apply for them. Additionally, last year Sugar Labs awarded
scholarships for funding travel for community members who applied for them.
