Is there any free programming?

To access the fair – the hall where all the sponsors and partner’s stands and booths are located – as well as join any event in the fair, there’s no need for registration.

For speeches, workshops, debates and community meetings, it is only allowed participation to registered people with their badges.

The Multiuse Room, located in the fair, will have free programming every day: cultural shows, debates, speeches, conferences. That programming will be made public in the week before the event. 


When is the complete programme going to be disclosed?

The programme is set up with the community’s participation, through the public call for works and vote by the previous years’ participants. This process is complete only by the end of June.

Can I have a preview of the themes to be worked?

Yes. Speeches will be organized in thematic zones, which, this year, are:

  • Admin
  • Development
  • Desktop
  • Emerging topics
  • Education
  • Ecosystem
  • Workshops
  • Community meetings
  • Culture

I’d like to suggest a speech/debate/workshop, how do I do?

The call for papers is closed.
You need to be a registered participant, and you must submit your proposal through the Papers system (here).

In case you just want to “give an idea” of an activity without getting directly involved, send an email to programafisl13 @ softwarelivre .org with your suggestion.

I’m trying to submit a speech, but the system seems to not be working correctly in my browser, what’s happening?

The Papers system is certified to work exclusively with Firefox.


How does the certificate production work? Do I need to prove my attendance?

Emissions of certificates are made automatically after the event, through the registrations system.

After the event, in your user area there will be a button “Generate Certificate” which will prompt you to download a PDF file with the certificate of participation in the event as a whole.

Those who registered and got their badges are entitled to a certificate of participation in the event, as a participant or as a speaker, with no mention to assiduity.

Do volunteers get certificates?

Sure! Volunteers get a more detailed certificate, specifying their work areas, hours worked, through their WorkGroup Coordinator.
