<nettime-ann> Free Knowledge, Free Technology (Barcelona, July 15-17)

Free Knowledge, Free Technology
Education for a free information society
First International Conference

July 15-17, 2008
Barcelona, Spain

The Free Knowledge, Free Technology Conference (FKFT) is the first 
international event which will centre on the production and sharing of 
educational and training materials in the field of Free Software and 
Open Standards. With the objective of promoting Free Software and the 
sharing of free knowledge, the FKFT 2008 Conference will bring together 
hundreds of people from different continents including government 
representatives, school and university teachers, IT companies, 
publishers, and NGO's. By gathering together people from all these 
groups, we aim to stimulate both present and future collaboration 
between diverse disciplines, sectors and countries, through the medium 
of free software programs and the sharing of successful experiences 
related to free software and free technologies.

The Free Knowledge Institute and the SELF Consortium will collaborate 
to organise the content of the conference and to build strong 
relationships between attendees. The programme consists of an elegant 
mix between keynote speakers, panel discussions and parallel tracks on 
topics such as Social implications of Free Knowledge and Free 
Technologies, Technological aspects of e-learning, Learning Standards, 
Free Software in society, Legal issues of Free Knowledge, Free 
Knowledge in public bodies, the SELF Platform, and many more. During 
the social evening the Award Ceremony of the SELF Open Documentary 
Contest will take place.

Registration is now open! The deadline for early registration rates is 
April 30, 2008. Please register here: http://fkft.eu
