Call for Papers for foss-north open (Gothenburg, April 2023)
foss-north is a Free Software conference in Gothenburg that brings together Nordic Free Software communities. This year, the Free Software Foundation Europe is organising a track covering political and legal aspects of Free Software, as well as best practices from Scandinavia. We're looking forward to your contribution by March 5!
This year's foss-north will take place on 24 and 25 April, following a community day on 23 April. It will be a local, face-to-face event. While in the past foss-north has focused on the technical aspects of Free Software, this year there will also be room for presenting best practice examples as well as political, legal, and social issues related to software freedom.
We are looking for your exciting talks and insights! Please submit your abstract directly to the foss-north website by 5 March 2023 23:59 CET.
Your contribution could address (but is not limited to) any of the following questions: Where in your community, municipality, city or region is Free Software helping to shape the digital infrastructure? What interesting Free Software projects are being developed and adopted by your university, school, library, job centre or elsewhere, using public money to create public code? How can administrations foster software solutions that preserve the freedom of citizens and the sovereignty of our democracy? How can we as programmers, users, scientists, officials, politicians, and citizens contribute to software freedom? How can we regain control of our devices?
Contributions on other Free Software related topics and projects will also be considered for selection. Our session slots are 45 and 25 minutes. Please indicate your preferred length in your submission notes and using tags. The final programme will be announced by mid-March 2023.
foss-north is the perfect opportunity for you to share your knowledge and get in touch with other people passionate about Free Software. We look forward to seeing you in Gothenburg!
