1.What experience from Wikimedia conferences and/or other related projects can you bring to help this committee?

I conceived and organized the first Wikisul meeting, held in conjunction with the Federal University of Santa Catarina. [[1]]

2.Why do you think conferences are valuable to our movement? OR What three factors are most important for planning an effective conference?

I believe that face-to-face events are of the utmost importance to strengthen the bonds of the community; this is, without a doubt, the main advantage of face-to-face meetings. Until today I have a close contact with the Wikimedians I met at the first Wikisul meeting, and the trust between us is very strong.

3. Please include a brief statement about yourself.

From my user page: About me: I have a degree in law and philosophy, a master's in philosophy, and a doctorate in philosophy in a binational doctorate (Brazil and Germany), with a thesis written and defended in German on the application of Practical Philosophy to Law. I have a post-doctoral internship in Philosophy and am currently researching topics in Philosophy of Globalization. I am an amateur triathlete and an amateur water marathoner. As a triathlete I focus on 70.3 races and as a water marathoner I have just created and completed a 16km race in my region the Travessia Três Fortalezas.

My work: Currently my work within the wikimedia movement consists of three fronts: a) administration of pt.wiki, which I center on blocking issues, both in judging concrete cases and in restructuring our current blocking policy; b) creation and development of Wikisul, a user group that aims to bring Wikimedia closer to universities; c) create a more effective bridge of communication and work between Meta and WMF on the one hand and pt.wiki on the other.
