FSCONS planning and related things can currently be discussed on the general Nordic fsfe-nordic mailing list.
FSCONS 2009 takes place the 13th-15th of November 2009 in Lindholmen, Göteborg, Sweden.
The Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit (FSCONS) is a meeting place for social change, focused on the future of free software and free society. The growing speed of new and innovative changes taking place within digital culture, as well as the pressing need for members of a marginalised society to gain access to important, updated information without financial or governmental barriers, the 2009 FSCONS will deal with an array of hot topics.
Open discussion and brainstorming are two of the primary factors that pave the way for change. The conference seeks to engage, inform and motivate social change through these discussions. In addition, FSCONS will be a meeting place for the digital revolution, providing presentations, workshops and showrooms, as well as social events in the evenings. Due to the variety of participants from across the digital spectrum, the conference offers the opportunity to connect prospective partners to further the goal of free culture and free software.
The essential goal of FSCONS is expansion: expanding the accessability of digital and technological information to everyone in the world; expanding the interest and promotion of free culture and free software; expanding the opportunities for all interested parties from around the globe to engage with others in hopes of changing the future of digital culture.
