These are the five themes that we currently have planned, or are in the process of planning, for FSCONS 2010. If you have an idea for a new theme, or want to help out with organising one of the below themes (as a coordinator or volunteer), please contact us at info@fscons.org.

Theme Description Coordinator
Embedded Linux The use of Linux and free software generally in embedded systems is increasing exponentially. In some ways, it's more common than not to use free software when developing new devices. Moving through the seven layers of the OSI model, this theme explores modern embedded systems, from the physical layer to the applications. Henrik Sandklef

Wikipedia defines infrastructure as "the basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society." The theme focuses on the infrastructure needs for tomorrows future society, as well as the basic need for privacy and secure communication, together with monitoring, both as a threat and as a tool to manage our ever increasing networks.

Jeremiah C. Fosterh
Divide and Reconquer

More and more people use centralised services for their daily tasks. To send each other messages they use centralised social networks. Most people only use a few providers for publishing videos and pictures. When we are searching for information there is a small amount of different search engine providers. In democratic societies power is divided and distributed. The topic of this track is why we need more decentralised Free Software services and which solutions already exist.

Free Software FSCONS 2010 Themes/Free Software Jonas Öberg (temp)
Making the Future FSCONS 2010 Themes/Making the Future Jonas Öberg
Using Free Software to Fuel the Revolution

Description TBA

Serengeti, ljo
Extensions From knowledge and art to farming, economics and politics, the ideas of Free Software have inspired many to rethink and improve the common basics for society. This theme explores the plentiful and wonderful forks of the Free Software Philosophy, and their implications for human life.

There's space in this talk for 2x30 and 2x45.


How does new technology influence our moral values, and are recent developments in society on a par with contemporary values? During this theme, we will explore the multifaceted issue of contemporary ethics. Is it morally acceptable to share digital artifacts with your friends, and if it is, what does that say about the ethics of new regulations and laws seeking to criminalise or introduce harsher punishments for such actions? The theme will try to find an answer to these questions, as well as to pose the question of what is morally acceptable in todays society, and the influence of this.
