FISL 14 - International Free Software Forum


About FISL

The FISL is held annually in the city of Porto Alegre in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The forum is one of the biggest events in the world and the largest in Latin America. Mozilla will be present during the 4 days of the forum, with activities for the audience.

Event date

July, 3 to 6 - 2013


This year we are planning to assemble a lounge in the booth area. The idea is to have a nice and attractive space were people would like to come and stay for while with us. We imagine this space with bean bags, projection and maybe a small stage. We are calling it "Firefox OS Lounge".

The lounge will be the stage for some of our activities during the event like the Hackathon and the SUMO sprint.

From the hotels that are on the list, the Eko Hotel Residence probably has the best cost-benefit.

Please, Let's Keep It Open!

The group of volunteers maintaining this page, the weekly FISL planning meetings and the actual volunteers participation in this event should be informed and consulted about all planned FISL activities and parallel efforts of other groups. We don't like surprises and last minute imposed stunts, please be open! Close-door meetings and top-down decisions doesn't fit the openness and transparency we are trying to achieve here.
