We are leaning towards the date 11/11/11 and unless we hear strong reasons against that date it will soon be officially accepted as the date for FSCONS 2011. Other events this year can be found here.


The organisation is divided into several groups (see below on how to get involved). The groups are coordinated by the core team, currently consisting of Jonas Öberg (FFKP), Henrik Sandklef (FFKP) and Rikard Fröberg (FFKP).

Get involved

Who wants to help out with the organisation? People needed for everything from drupal development or marketing to moving furniture.

In fact, the conference is depending heavily on participation from the community and voluntary co-operation. FSCONS is the sum of what we do together.

Starting next Monday (March 21st) and every other week following that, we will have meetings at Gnutiken.

These meetings will start at 16:00 and be concluded around 17:00.

The address is Övre Husargatan 27, Göteborg

Starting this year we will gather suggestions for the upcoming meeting agenda on this page.

Meeting summaries will be available here.

Deadline for additions to the agenda will be the Thursday preceeding the meeting, with the agenda being published via email the next day (Friday preceeding the meeting).

Management procedures

Rough outline: The groups have each a team leader who reports to the core team as they deem necessary. All groups meet together regularly so that issues or tasks can be coordinated and dealt with. The meetings are open to everybody but the team leaders should preferably attend so that coordination and progress is easy and we all know we are on track according to the plan. Urgent issues may of course be directed to the core team at any time by the team leaders.

Assistant/Interns are a way of getting more people involved. We'll try to implement this to allow people who don't want to shoulder an entire group to still help out. If you're interested to be an assistant or intern for the conference, please let us know. Email us at info _AT_ fscons.org.

Program and tracks

Each track in the program has a track responsible known as the track manager and the overall CFP, schedule, etc organised by the program responsible. The track managers together in a meeting has veto power by single majority on specific sessions to be included in the track.

Conference themes

All are invited to participate in defining the overall themes for the conference. This can be done through subscribing to and posting ideas to the discussion mailing list, leaving comments in the designated area on the wiki or by communicating this to the core team or one of the team leaders. At an open meeting of all groups, the teams will be asked to contribute ideas on the themes for the conference. It is the responsibility of the core team to make a final decision about the themes for each conference based on the input from individuals and teams.
