The second preliminary session of the World Summit on Information Society took place in Geneva from February 18 to 25, 2005. The second part of this summit, organised by the International Télecommunications Union (ITU), should take place in Tunis in December 2005.

Yann Forget participated in the Education Workgroup in the name of the Wikimedia Foundation. This group includes dozens of participants and aims to draft a document to be adopted by the plenary session of the Summit. Some points which concerned the projects of the Wikimedia Foundation like open and free access to information were added to the draft.

A request of accreditation for the Wikimedia Foundation was sent to ITU.
