A gang of Debian users and developers are going to organize a mini-DebConf at the FSCONS free society conference in Gothenburg, Sweden. FSCONS is held 13-15 November, which also are the dates the mini-DebConf will be held. During the conference Debian related talks and workshops will be given in the main programe and social events will take place.

Our goal is lay the foundation for something like debian-nordic, which, strange enough, does not exist today. Yet, there are quite a few DDs, and Debian users, in the nordic region.

Come and partake in an excellent Free Software/Free Society conference with a Debian chocolate chipped cookie event on the side!

Participants may get accommodation and food sponsorship. Remember to add your name to this wiki page if you are joining us. You also can find all the information about the event in that wiki page.
