foss-north 2023 is taking place in Gothenurg on April 24 and 25

This year's foss-north will take place on April 24 and 25, following a community day on April 23. 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 political, legal, and social issues related to software freedom.

Join the Conversation

The FSFE is co-organising a track on political, social, and legal issues around Free Software in the Palmstedt Room.

It will be two days full of interesting topics such as license compliance with AI assisted coding, municipal collaboration on Free Software, enabling Free Software through procurement projects, the role of Free Software for citizen participation, and more. Lina Ceballos, Policy Project Manager at the FSFE, will present our position on the Interoperable Europe Act in a keynote.

If you want to know more about the speakers and the talks, you can check the whole schedule here.

Community Day and Social Event

The Community Day is taking place on Sunday April 23. This is a day of community activities taking place at various locations in Gothenburg.
