Call for sessions at the FSFE assembly during 33C3

20 October 2016:

From December 27 to 30, the FSFE will host an assembly during the 33rd Chaos Communication Congress (33C3) including an information booth, self-organised sessions and a meeting point for all friends of Free Software to come together, share or simply relax. We are looking forward to organise sessions in the name of our assembly and we will book proper rooms or offer our assembly itself. Sessions can be inspiring talks, hands-on workshops, community/developer/strategy meetings or any other public, informative or collaborative activity.

Topics can be anything that is about or related to Free Software. We welcome technical sessions but we also encourage to give non-technical talks that address philosophical, economical or other aspects of/about Free Software. We also like sessions about related subjects that have a clear connection to Free Software for example privacy, data protection, sustainability and similar topics. Finally, we welcome all backgrounds – from your private project to global community projects. If you are interested, read more about our call for participation.

28 September 2016:

On 14 September the European Commission (EC) published its long-awaited proposal for a Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market. While we welcome the proposal to introduce a mandatory exception for 'text and data mining' (TDM) in the field of scientific research, we are concerned about the inclusion of a far-reaching "technical safeguards" clause granted to rightholders in order to limit the newly established exception.

En souvenir de notre ami Elias Diem

09 August 2016:

Dans l'après-midi du samedi 6 août, notre ami et Fellow Elias Diem nous a quittés. Il rentrait d'une randonnée avec un ami dans les alpes suisses. Il a glissé et fait une chute de 150 mètres. Son ami a tenté de le secourir, mais il était trop tard. Il est décédé d'une grave blessure à la tête à l'âge de 39 ans.
