There was a time when we put all user-generated community-driven crowdsourced events under the label “workshops”. We said that a workshop need not be an event with hands-on and making, it’s just something that happens at a special time and place, outside of the big halls.
For the 30c3, we’ve added 3 new REALLY BIG rooms (Hall D-F) in addition to the halls we used last year (Hall 13-14) just for your events. We also chose a more appropriate name for everything that is organized by you: “Self-organized Sessions“.
It doesn’t matter whether you want to give an introduction into your favorite programming language or want to make new friends with similar interests. All you have to do is use the wiki to create a SOS and choose a free space and time to get going. (You can check the Session-Calendar for open slots.)
Each room is equipped with a video projector and Halls D-F will have a PA. We’ve also improved the idea of the Speakers Corner and there are many Assemblies that provide sessions and space for sessions.
As you can see: Everything is ready for your session! So join the 150+ already registered sessions and create your part of the 30C3.
