First World UFO Forum

           BRASILIA - BRAZIL - DECEMBER 1997

 Brazilian researchers organize the biggest UFO
                 conference ever
          The First World UFO Forum

 by A. J. Gevaerd, from Brazilian UFO
        From December 7th to 14th Brazil's federal capital
Brasilia will host the biggest UFO conference ever
promoted in the world until now. A coalition of six
Brazilian UFO researchers have been contracted by a large
non governmental organization called Legiao da Boa
Vontade to organize the Conference and invite as many
international speakers as possible. Up to now, the list of
invited comprises 52 top UFO researchers from all over
the world and over 30 Brazilian lecturers as well.

        The coalition of researchers contracted to host the
conference is comprised of Claudeir Covo, from the
National Institute of Aerospace Phenomena Investigations
(INFA); Rafael Cury, from the UFO Research Nucleus
(NPU); Reginaldo de Athayde, from Ufological Research
Center (CPU); Marco Antonio Petit, from Fluminense UFO
Research Association (AFEU); and Ubirajara Rodrigues
and A. J. Gevaerd, both from the Brazilian Center for
Flying saucer Research (CBPDV), the biggest UFO group
in the country.

        The conference to be held in 8 days (from 8 a.m. to 11
p.m. daily) has been called First World UFO Forum and its
main objective is to promote a summit of the biggest and
most prominent UFO researchers from all parts of the
planet. These people will be asked to prepare a
comprehensive document covering most aspects of UFO
visitations and alien contacts to be given to
the main authorities from several countries, some of them
will be present at the Forum.

Brasilia has been chosen to host the Forum because it is
regarded as the central city in Brazil for discussion of the
UFO phenomena. Many Brazilian and other South
American civilian and military representatives will be
invited to attend the  discussions. Representatives from
other non governmental organizations, scientific community
and associations are also in the list of invited parties.
Brazilians are definitely trying to organize the biggest UFO
event ever and the only publication in the country --- the
Brazilian UFO Magazine --- is devoted to promote the
Forum as extensively as possible.
