Dates

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.

Organisation

The organisation is divided into several groups (see below on how to take part). The groups are coordinated by the management 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.

Management procedures

The groups have each a team leader who reports to the management as they deem necessary. All groups meet regularly so that issues or tasks can be coordinated and dealt with. The meetings are open to everybody but the team leaders should attend so that issues surface and can be addressed. Urgent issues may of course be directed to the management team at any time by the team leaders.

Manifest

Please read our FSCONS Manifest.

Anti-harassment policy

Naturally, and in accordance with our manifesto, we have an anti-harassment policy.

Drop whatever ideas you have here, including for speakers and topics.

Suggestion for themes/tracks (and examples of topics):

  • Commons - Common (noun), a pasture subject to common use What commons do we have historically, and what new commons emerge?
  • Accessibility - Are societies accessible to every human, regardless of visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities? What role can technology play, in increasing accessibility? Are on-line services less or more accessible than physical? What about culture?
  • Education - Challenges, possibilities and lessons learned
  • Journalism - how has journalism evolved with the www?
  • Future of devices - Will everybody have access to the world's collected knowledge and wisdom in their pockets, or will devices be more targeted towards entertainment?
  • Societies - What defines a society? What is the relationship between a state and a society? How do societies evolve?
