Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit
Gothenburg, Sweden, 13-15th November 2009
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 growing speed of new and innovative changes taking
place within digital culture, as well as the pressing need for members
of society to gain access to information, software and cultural works
without financial or governmental barriers, mean that FSCONS 2009 will
deal with an array of hot topics.
Open discussion and brainstorming are two of the primary factors that
pave the way for change. The conference seeks to engage, inform and
motivate social change through these discussions, and we hope that you
will join us in this to change the future of digital culture!
FSCONS 2009 is Co-Organised by the Foundation for Free Culture and
Software, Free Software Foundation Europe, Serengeti, Wikimedia
Sweden, Creative Commons Sweden and FriBit.
