    September 2018

6-10 Ars Electronica @Postcity Linz, Austria

13-15 Speculum Artium 2018 @Trbovlje/SI
Modern art ended up in grid of partial knowledge and interests, uncompromising dictate of postcapitalistic thinking and the capital. It slipped away from the hold of the poets, explorers. S.A. in it’s foundations builds upon previus festivals and their organisaton structure. S.A. festival will present production emerging from the very structure of new media art in the world:

27-28 Retune18: Festival for Art, Design and Technology @Berlin, DE

27 Coded Matter(s): Terra Fiction @Brakke Grond Expo Zaal, Amsterdam, NL
FIBER and De Brakke Grond invite speakers working in the fields of art, literature, science, design and digital culture to reassess man’s future relationship with the earth and the cosmos. Today, visionary artists and researchers are turning back to our earth to imagine futures that position humans and our technologies inside a more balanced ecology. Our programme presents alternative perspectives of what this future could look like. Speculative designers, art-scientists and writers will share their research and evolving ideas to challenge the big-tech model.
Terra Fiction is the second installment of FIBER’s ongoing Coded Matter(s): Worldbuilding project. These lecture events question the design of contemporary world visions and technological narratives, which are contributing to greater socio-economic inequality and environmental destruction
lectures, doors open 19:45 - until 23:00, 16€

28-29 Terra Fiction Lab: Worldbuilding @Waag Society, Amsterdam, NL
In two days participants will create narratives (short stories, prototypes or short videos) that give access to a world where new relationships between landscape, space, technology and humans are envisioned. The aim is to imagine existence  in a postcapitalist world with an economic system that is not based on exploitation and extractivist practices: a 21st-century society that will be less human-centered with organisms, landscapes, machines emancipated alongside humans, on earth or elsewhere. ;Worlds where ecologies are regenerated by new alliances between humans and plants. 
How does such a world look? What kind of stories and imageries can help us envision such a world?

28-30 FIfF-Konferenz 2018: Brave New World ~ Gestaltungsfreiheiten und Machtmuster soziotechnischer Systeme @Berlin/DE

28-30 Decentralisation! Social Tools Conference @Helsinki, Finland
At the 2018 Social Tools Conference we examine the economic, social and political practices of decentralisation. We will look at what happens to groups or communities that try to work in different, democratic and more decentralised ways. Social Tools 2018 Conference is aimed at members of activist networks, artistic collectives, companies, co-ops, NGOs, museums, startups, universities, and interested individuals. 
We will have debates and practical workshops to share a variety of practices that deal with issues of decentralising and democratising. We have gathered a radical and inspiring set of speakers and workshop leaders, including Nati Lombardo & Rich Bartlett from Loomio and Occupy New Zealand, Sophie Hope & Nick Mahony from the culture democracy movement and Sven Latzel from Sociocracy 3.0. This is not a passive event: everyone’s experience will count. The conference will start with a symposium on Friday afternoon, followed by open discussions on Friday evening and intensive practical workshops on Saturday and Sunday.
free + prior registration for attendance

23-25 @Berlin

30 @ Berlin
   In extensive testing, it has been noticed that the information
   sharing and learning during gatherings of interested and skilled
   individuals, commonly referred to as conferences, changes for any
   particular individual over time. While initially most insights
   are gained by attending presentations and working through the
   presented material afterwards, over years the individual, striving
   for a more efficient information retrieval approach, resorts to what
   is known as the hallway track.

6-7 IASC Urban Commons conference @Bologna, Italy
"Inspired by the recently implemented Bologna Regulation on Collaboration for the Care and Regeneration of the Urban Commons, as well as by other commons-based experiments in cities around Italy by the LabGov project (e.g. Co-Mantova, Co-Battipaglia and Co-Palermo), the 1st IASC Thematic Conference on the Urban Commons will bring together leading scholars, researchers, policymakers, practitioners and social innovators to take stock of the developments in the interdisciplinary study of the urban commons and related questions of urban governance

7-8 FSCONS 2015 @Göteborg, Sweden
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 life 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.

"The student and early career academic professional conference on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data"
Empowering the Next Generation to Advance Open Access, Open Education and Open Data will take place in on November 14-16 in Brussels, Belgium and bring together students and early career academic professionals from across the world to learn about the issues, develop critical skills, and return home ready to catalyze action toward a more open system for sharing the world’s information — from scholarly and scientific research, to educational materials, to digital data."
    * Applications to attend OpenCon are open until June 22nd, but applicants are encouraged to apply early.
    * OpenCon seeks to bring together the most capable, motivated students and early career academic professionals from around the world to advance Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data—regardless of their ability to cover travel costs. In 2014, more than 80% of attendees received support. Due to this, attendance at OpenCon is by application only.
    * Applicants can request a full or partial travel scholarship, which will be awarded to most of those accepted. OpenCon 2015 will convene students and early career academic professionals from around the world and serve as a powerful catalyst for projects led by the next generation to advance OpenCon’s three focus areas—Open Access, Open Education, and Open Research Data. Through a program of keynotes, panel discussions, workshops, and hackathons, participants will build skills in key areas—from raising institutional awareness to coordinating national-level campaigns effectively.

Come to see design fiction of everyday life in 2040 and hear histories of the future. Of course, you can also rewrite them and gather building blocks for your own utopia. Did we achieve global peace, food security and social protection for everyone? What do you want from the future society, what are your desirables? You can also study background materials informing our work and participate in events and debates."

27-28 Housing Activism: Beyond the West @ Stockholm/SWE
International conference to be held at Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES), Södertörn University, Stockholm, Sweden
        * Deadline for submission of paper proposals: 31st January 2016.
        * Submission of full paper: 6th May 2016.
        * To participate without a paper, indicate your interest by April 15th 2016

The title of the encounter is ‘Anthropos-Anthropotechnics-Anthropocene’ and this means that it will be thematically devoted to the relation between humanity, technology and ecology in the work of both Sloterdijk and Stiegler and more specifically to an exploration of the changing relations between the human and technology within the emerging context of the anthropocene – i.e., the new geological epoch proposed recently by geologists and earth systems scientists in which ‘the human’ has supposedly become the most important geological (f)actor.

    * "Abstracts of around 250 words should be submitted to by no later than the 15th of January 2016. The applicants will be informed of the selection committee’s decision by 31st of January 2016."

HackOn is a participatory event happening in Amsterdam in mid-July on

how technology plays a role in society. HackOn was born out of the
hacker ethics, decentralisation, autonomy, critical views, and lulz.
However, we don't limit ourselves to just those topics. We decentralis
by organising a smaller outdoor event in the Netherlands,
autonomy and a way to get other voices heard. HackOn is a
non/anti-commercial event. Your crowdfunded ethical hacking startu
kindly go fuck itself. HackOn will not become an institution, we'd
rather burn those down. HackOn is organised by anyone who is interested
in contributing. It is an open invitation to participate in co
an environment where knowledge is shared and infrastructure is
decentralised. There is space to organise workshops, debates, present
your ideas or projects, and engage with other inhabitants of the event
