Squeakfest Brasil

This year we hope to hold two Squeakfest conferences, one in Brasil and another in the United States. While US details are still pending, we're very pleased to announce Squeakfest Brasil!

WHEN: July 24th and 25th, 2009

WHERE: Porto Alegre, Brasil

WHO: Hosted by UFRGS and Pensamento Digital

WHAT: a teacher-oriented, hands-on conference, showcasing Squeak Etoys use throughout Brasil and the rest of South & Central America

LANGUAGES: Portuguese and Spanish, with English translators

We've timed our conference so you may also attend the 9th World Conference on Computers in Education (WCCE):

WHEN: July 27th to July 31st, 2009

WHERE: Bento Gonçalves, Brasil


Transportation from Porto Alegre will be arranged as part of WCCE registration.

Several from Squeakland and Viewpoints will be presenting at both conferences. We encourage others from our community to consider presenting and to help us spread the word to colleagues and friends.

We'll be sending a "call for presentations" in March and will also be launching the conference website at that time.
