|Wednesday 19 nov Day 1|
13H00 – 13H45 Welcome Open Coffee
- Crypto-Currencies let’s look under the hood, let’s look beyond !
- Overview of past & current monetary practices to provide the context needed to understand the merits and limitations of current currencies models. Past, present, future of currencies from a historical & economical point of view. Towards to a P2P cryptocurrency model?
- Crypto-currencies algorithms can be applied to other domains, come to this track and see by yourself what you can do !
14H00 – 15H00 Bernard Lietaer
- “Why money needs to change now!”
The current monopoly of conventional money is a main source for unsustainable behaviors. New currency designs – among which crypto-currencies, but not only crypto-currencies ! – can contribute to make the necessary shifts more smoothly.
- “Focus on crypto-currencies, its algorithms, its business models, its limits?”
- “Taler: Taxable Anonymous Libre Electronic Reserves”
- Taler, a Chaum-style digital currency using blind signatures that enables anonymous payments while ensuring that entities that receive payments are auditable and thus taxable !
- P2P Society & P2P money manifesto.
- Crypto Currencies in Context: Feathercoin & Hullcoin in action !
- Come and see the implementation of two important crypto-currencies Hullcoin & Feather coin. Don’t miss it!
- Surprise : Chris Ellis will also show us that the dyke has yield: Crypto-Currencies algorithms can be applied to other domain that Chris will present, he will also show codes!

|Friday 21 nov Day 3|
- Open knowledge creation
- Crowdsourcing scientific research
// Open science boilt down to providing open access to the results of research (open publications, open data, open code, …) but why don’t we go further by opening & crowdsourcing the process of knowledge creation itself?
// Come & understand how to implement this!

But how many of us knows where does it come from ? who creates it ? How does it really work?
Do you think that when a technology stakes are high, impacting tremendously the society, this technology has to stay open ?
For instance, what would have happenned if the protocol HTTP would be closed?
Linux system is nowadays everywhere, security protocols are open and we can easily detect defects in the code…
We propose in this track to figure out how a currency works today and what are the new challenges arising.
This track will be a great opportunity to better understand what is money and figure out the prospect of the future “open money web”.
Jewelry, accessories, houses, agricultural machinery, vehicules, furnitures, prostheses for the disabled, humanoid robots, or DNA scanners are now documented, replicable and open-source iterable ! Often at a very competitive price.
This session will aim at discovering amazing and remarkable projects in the domain of the material (using iterated methods familiar to free communities).
Critical questions for the future will be presented: What can be the economic models? futur industrial paradigms? creative shock ? What about intellectual property for free objects ?
So many axes to explore with stakeholders in society, far beyond the core contributors of the open source communities.
As part of its Digital Disruptions prospection cycle “Transitions”, and of the 6th edition of the free Open Source Software academia (fOSSa), the Fondation Internet Nouvelle Génération (FING) will organise on thursday November 20th (15h to 18h) a workshop in Rennes, in partnership with Inria, the Cantine Numérique rennaise and the Rennes Labfab.
Which is the role of openness in systems’ transformation journey ?
We will focus to the “open” as a dynamics of transition to be challenged:
- its effect on fields where it is in action
- the necessary conditions so that other fields benefit from this trigger
- the “plug and play” models of openness, and especially the “bazaar »
>> Registration for this specific workshop (we need to calibrate the room)<<
The results of this workshop will feed the joint publication “Digital Disruptions 2015″, to be published in March 2015.
Are you currently the leader/owner of an innovative project in the field of open source ? If your projects meets these criterias, we invite you to promote it by presenting it at 6 minutes of Serendipity (Carrefour des Possibles), hosted by Inria Rennes Center, on November, 20th. 2014. Take care : proposals accepted until November, 4th. 2014.
During fOSSa 2014, the Fing organises an edition of 6 minutes of Serendipity (Carrefour des Possibles), with Inria, and the Cantine Numérique and the LabFab de Rennes.
What are the awaited projects?
Proposals must be presented in the form of use scenarios, ie : you must demonstrate how your service is to be utilized from a user’s perspective (including user profile, usage context, and tasks to be performed). In addition, an outline of the principles of your business model must be included in your application. Proposals that represent a break with the existing market will be preferred!
While this Call for Proposals is open to anyone, priority consideration will be given to projects submitted by start-ups, research laboratories, SOHOs and small businesses; we will also consider submissions made by larger companies.
