About FISL

18 years strengthening collaborative knowledge and building free technologies.

Each year the International Free Software Forum has been establishing itself as a place for discussion and exhibition of the main innovations in free technologies.

Since the first edition, FISL has as the main value “the technology that liberates”, encouraging the maintenance of transparency in technology, be it in codes, open standards, knowledge sharing and the fight for the free and neutral Internet. In 2018 the FISL will again be the stage of the largest gathering of free Software communities in the world. Together, we will share knowledge and innovations, renew connections with communities, participate in the system of free and open technologies, but also concerns in search of our common goal: to build a more just, collaborative humanity And with free knowledge.
