merges the technical with the social, seeking both to activate and
challenge. Open discussion and brainstorming are as important as the talks
given during the conference.

Free Society generally, as well as those which are at the crossroads of the

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 lifee 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.
