The Conference

In collaboration with the P2P FoundationRemote link Project OekonuxRemote link is currently preparing the 4th Oekonux ConferenceRemote link. It is going to take place in Manchester 27-29 March 2009.

It is titled

Free Software and Beyond

The World of Peer Production

This is a conference where Free Software and other on-line peer production phenomenons like Wikipedia or OpenAccess will be researched and discussed.

Oekonux conferences are at the junction of community and science. They attract a diverse group of audience ranging from academic researchers to the general public. We have seen

taking part in the previous Oekonux conferences.

If you need more information about the conference please visit the conference web siteRemote link.

Funding Needed

As virtual communities, neither Project OekonuxRemote link nor the P2P FoundationRemote link needs much money for day to day operation. We have secured local volunteers to help with the organisation of the conference. However, to make this conference possible we need money to pay for travel costs and accommodation for the invited speakers. That is why we are raising funds.
