Subject: 	Update on IGF Best Bits meeting and registration now open
Date: 	Tue, 29 Sep 2015 15:57:48 -0700
From: 	Jeremy Malcolm <jmalcolm at eff.org>
To: 	bestbits at lists.bestbits.net <bestbits at lists.bestbits.net>

Confirming the previous "save the date", we are happy to confirm that
there will be a Best Bits meeting in João Pessoa
<http://bestbits.net/events/best-bits-2015> on the day prior to day 0 of
the IGF (November 8th).  For those arriving early enough, we will also
have a no host dinner on the 7th (dinner venue TBC).  If you plan to
attend the meeting, please register now, and we will be in touch with
further details as plans progress.  All self-identified members of civil
society are welcome.

The venue is the Xênius Hotel <http://www.xeniushotel.com.br/>, which is
mid-way along the João Pessoa beach strip, and therefore probably about
equally in/convenient to most of those who will be attending the IGF. 
If you do not already have a hotel and if you do not expect luxury, a
limited group booking of rooms at USD$36 per night at this hotel is
available.  Please email me privately to indicate if you require this
after registering (note that no travel or accommodation support is
currently available).

A tentative agenda, which remains open for change, has been suggested
and can be found at the event website
<http://bestbits.net/events/best-bits-2015>.  For those sessions that
have already been proposed, volunteers are welcome to help contribute in
various capacities including moderation, speaking, notetaking and
logistical help.  You can volunteer, propose edits to session
descriptions, or propose new sessions, at this etherpad

We look forward to your input in the preparation of the meeting, and to
seeing many of you in João Pessoa.
