FSCONS X, 12-13 November 2016, Marstrand, Sweden
Celebrating our tenth anniversary, FSCONS 2016 will take place at Marstrands Havshotell, beautifully situated on the west coast of Sweden.
As such, there will be a few differences to our usual conference.
- There will be no tracks or themes, and no keynotes. Instead, we have invited 12 fantastic speakers. Some are among our favourites from previous conferences, some are people we have previously invited but that were unable to come before, and some are people doing new and exiting things.
- The number of participants is limited to the number of rooms in the hotel, which is about 100. The participation fee will be somewhat higher than previous years. However, this price includes all meals and one night at the hotel, and corresponds to the actual cost per participant. As such, there will be no early bird tickets.
- Depending on our luck in getting sponsors, we may be able to refund some of the costs for participants. We will put up an application form for this as the conference approaches and divide any surplus fairly among applicants.
Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit FSCONS exists to provide a meeting place where subjects covering society, culture and technology can be discussed and brought to life in peer discussions, without being confined to each particular subject area. It should provide both the physical and virtual space where people, organisations and governments, with interest in the three subject areas can meet in a participatory and constructive dialogue. The unique combination of topics creates a platform where cross-pollination between the areas can occur, and where new co-operations and thoughts can emerge which allows the participants to find new inspiration even from areas outside of their own.
