Call for participation FSCONS 2012, November 09‒11
The Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit (FSCONS) is a meeting
place for social change, focused on the future of free software and
free society. 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.
For this years conference we're looking for proposals on a number of
different subjects. We're looking for proposals that relate to Free
Society or Free Software generally, as well as those which are at the
