== Jonas Öberg (Jonas) ==
Jonas has worked with the conference since its inception in 2007. His work for 2012 focus on the program as well as thinking about what the conference could look like in 2013.
'''Vision for the conference & future'''
FSCONS has always been a conference that seeks to bring people from different disciplines together. We're not afraid of conflicts but instead see it as a goal to diffuse the tension between various groups and to encourage dialogue, as it's in the cognitive conflicts encountered when two people of opposing views meet that progress is made in their thinking.
For myself, I hope that 2012 will be the year when the conference participants take charge not only of the conference, but of the organisation behind it. After this years conference, I would like to take a step back and allow a new board to take shape, where I can participate to help with my experience and expertise where needed, but where others can lead the conference into its next 5 years.

== Rikard Fröberg ([[User:Rikard|Rikard]])==
Rikard has been working with the conference since 2009. Last year, Rikard organised a track, "Universal Design - Aiming for Accessibility" in which different topics touching upon technology and accessibility were presented. This year (2012) Rikard will take a step back and will primarily be available for the organisers for giving feedback and advice, while not actively working with the planning of the conference.
'''Vision for the conference'''
My vision is that the conference continues to evolve in a way that allows for the - in my opinion - unique touch is has had so far, in that it is a conference where the meetings between the participants are as natural and important as the rest of the program. I aim for the conference to keep up its work with bringing different views and perspectives together so that fruitful dialogs may take place.
For me, it is also important and an exciting challenge to develop the conference in order to make it more accessible. For 2012, I am looking at the accessibility aspect of the conference, and last year I was also part of the work with making the conference more accessible.
I'd be glad to assist anyone in the organising team or any aspect who has questions on accessibility or just wants to discuss the topic.
I hope that the organisers will continue to try and pick up comments and suggestions from the participants and staff, so that the conference keeps improving each year.
