 The World Social Forum is an open space for all, without discrimination of race, origin, gender, religious beliefs, political ideologies, sexual orientation etc. The 2011 WSF Organizing Committee has developed this registration tool which is already opened for registration of organizations, individual participants and delegates, activities and also stall requests for the next edition of the Forum. You will be guided online during the whole process.

However, if you have Internet access difficulties, or if you know an organization that need to register but don’t have Internet Access, please, contact the Secretariat of the Organizing Committee, a form will be available to you for your registration:

Registration Guidelines
There are two modes of registration: individual and of organizations. Organizations can send up to 5 delegates and register 3 activities, which will be confirmed after the payment of registration fees is made. As in the other centralized editions of the WSF, to register a self-organized activity you must do it through the organization registration - individuals cannot register activities. If you wish to be only a participant, please fill in the individual participant form.

Deadline for registering is on December 15th, and deadline for payment is on December 25th. After the 15th it won't be possible to register self-organized activities any longer, but it will be possible to make changes in the content of the data (organization, activity, participants info). The deadline for this will be on December 25th too. Payment will be available soon.

If you have Internet access difficulties, or if you know an organization that need to register but don’t have Internet Access, please, contact the Secretariat of the Organizing Committee, a form will be available to you for your registration:

Registration of communicators / Press Accreditation / Medias Center /
The WSF 2011 Media center is established on the WSF venue for journalists accredited for the WSF 2011 event. They can find information on Forum activities and other practical information’s relating to their stay in Senegal. The Center will also be opened to organizations registered for the forum and trying to organize activities with the press, such as press conferences, debates or interviews with journalists. Procedures will be established to organize and facilitate access. A special form for communicators is already online.


To be granted a visa in order to participate at the 2011 WSF in Dakar, we strongly recommend you to look for the Senegalese embassies and consulates in your countries/regions. These services were already informed by the Senegalese authorities and they intend to make the process easier. Other than that, for countries where there is no Senegalese Embassy, participants should get in touch as soon as possible with the Secretariat of the Organizing Commission: secretariatcomiteforumdakar or midiouf
