Call for participation -- FSCONS 2014, 31 Oct-2 Nov

The Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit (FSCONS) is a meeting
place for social change, focused on the intersection between technology,
culture and society. FSCONS is organised according to the principles 
laid out in our Manifesto[1], a living document accepted by the society's 
members at the yearly meeting.

The conference brings together people from a wide range of
fields, and merges the technical with the social, seeking both to
activate and challenge. Open discussion and brainstorming are as
important as the talks given during the conference.
 
Invitation

We're looking for proposals that relate to Free Software, Free Culture or Free Society
generally, as well as those which are at the crossroads of the three or
which take the philosophy and brings them to a whole new field. 
To give you a hint of the scope of the conference here are some topics already planned:

* Open Space
* Open Government
