Call for participation -- FSCONS 2014, Gothenburg, 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
* Government and access
* The Unrestricted Web
* Programming Languages
* Makers
* Context Hacking
* Beyond post-scarcity
* Wikimedia

But don't let this restrict your thinking: you can submit a proposal
even if it doesn't quite fit into any of the above topics.

The deadline for your proposal is July 4th.
