first fsfe summit

FSFE, the European chapter of Free Software Foundation (FSF) will be organizing its first ever summit during the first week of September 2016 and the venue designated for the first FSFE is Berlin. It will go on for 3 days, starting on the 2nd of September up until the 4th.

The summit is being organized as a sub-conference of the QtCon that has been programmed to hold in the Berlin Congress Center (BCC). FSFE Summit will be bringing together five Free Software communities and projects under one roof together with Qt Contributors, VideoLAN, KDE and KDAB.

What’s The Motive?

The aim of the FSFE summit is to bring FSFE members and supporters from all over Europe together.

During the course of the summit, members of the community will present their ideas and interests. These community sessions will then be embedded in an environment of talks and presentations that will be given by external speakers and professionals. We expect both input and output by the diverse community to be inspiring given the mix of prominent speakers and newcomers from all over Europe.

The talks are to be kept non-technical in order to to be able to reach out to a wider audience. The theme of the talks are:

  • September 2nd, talks about business with or around Free Software.
  • September 3rd, talks over aspects of Free Software policies and lobbying as well as community building. Plus a celebration of 15 years of FSFE.
  • September 4th, talks and input about universal access beyond code.
