Financial details

Föreningen fri kultur och programvara (FFKP) is responsible towards the co-organisers for properly managing the finances of FSCONS. This includes accepting donations, sponsorships and participation fees and using this for expenses incurred by the conference. Expenses alien for the purpose of the conference may not be accounted by FFKP from the income received for the conference, nor may unproportionally high payments be made to officials, volunteers, or employees of FFKP or any of the Co-Organisers for work in the conference.

Any proceeds from the organisation of the conference will primarily be rolled forward to future conferences (which may or may not be organised by the same Co-Organisers).

Programme Committee

The programme committee will be responsible, under the direction of the conference manager, to decide on the programme for the tracks of the conference. The programme committe will be involved in particular with creating the Call for Papers (CfP) and ultimately (after evaluation by the programme evaluators) deciding which talks and workshops to accept into the programme, so that the speakers can afterwards be invited by the conference manager (or someone who will be assigned the specific role of arranging invitations and logistics with the speakers).


The Conference Director will create, based on the reviewes by evaluators, a draft list and programme of accepted talks and workshops and send this to the members of the programme committee on the 21/22nd of june. The Programme Committee will have a week to reply to this and discuss the programme through e-mail. By the 3rd of july, a Jabber meeting will take place to discuss common issues, after which the Conference Director will fix the programme as decided by the PC.
