DebConf 4 will be hold in Porto Alegre, Brazil, from May 26th to June 2nd, right before FISL (Internacional Free Software Forum).

This is a internal work page, not intended for people outside from the organizing committee. "Regular" information at our website:

General TODO List:

  • Call For Papers - Will we go for the simple-mail or will we copy FISL's one (I don't see why)
  • Press Release
  • Air fare sponsorship taskforce - We have to decide how it's going to work. What will our criteria be and so on.
  • Macan's document
  • Conference websystem (basicly scheduling) - something like ["MCal"] or PHP-Calendar
  • And conference documentation - this is a long term issue: we have to document our experience so people can reuse it in DebConf5, 6, 7...

Web Site TODO List:

  • MOSTLY Transport (to and from airport, FISL, cabs, bus - specially signs and prices)
  • DONE Rent cars

  • Ask local people to monitor groups during Debconf

  • Have a first aid kit at SESC (medicaments for headache, etc)
  • During the subscription, confirm with the attendes, the name and the phone to contact in any emergency case.
  • Make a formal dinner, when DPL can talk

<enrico> A useful thing that we had in Vis were facilitators: someone whose duty was to make things go smooth. An example of a facilitator role could be having a walk around from time to time and updating a big central whiteboard with all that is going on

We're discussing the DebConf4Digital infrastructure.
