The Wikimedia-University Users Group of Southern Brazil, or simply Wikisul, is limited to serving editors in southern Brazil - namely: the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Paraná - and although one or the other editor may be outside this region, especially due to a change of state after membership, all face-to-face events will take place in this region, as well as new memberships.

It is proposed by the Wikisul the development of fruitful relationships between universities and wikimedia projects, especially Wikipedia (see objectives below), established around university professors, as has already been done by Wikisul members at UFSC (Federal University of Santa Catarina), the initial focus of tne Wikisul (see:Theory of History on Wikipedia).
