27C3: We come in peace – Call for Participation

We come in peace

We come in peace

We come in peace, said the conquerers of the New World.
We come in peace, says the government, when it comes to colonise, regulate, and militarise the new digital world.
We come in peace, say the nation-state sized companies that have set out to monetise the net and chain the users to their shiny new devices.
We come in peace, we say as hackers, geeks and nerds, when we set out towards the real world and try to change it, because it has intruded into our natural habitat, the cyberspace. Let us explore each other’s truly peaceful intentions at this year’s Chaos Communication Congress 27C3 to be held from Monday December 27 to Thursday December 30, 2010 in Berlin, Germany.

We invite you to send us proposals for talks, lectures and workshops on all topics of relevance; the following areas are of particular interest this year:

Reactive:

  • DPI (deep packet inspection) circumvention
  • using their technology against them
  • counter-forensics
  • device neutrality – who owns, controls and queries the phone in your pocket? How can we regain control?
  • new classes of security problems and exploits (or old classes used in new and exceptionally exciting ways)
  • self-inflicted surveillance
  • manufacturing plausible deniability

Proactive:

  • putting technological developments into a historical and political perspective
  • beyond Tor: next generation anonymity systems
  • open and distributed data mining
  • mobile phone hacking and network building
  • playing corporate and government games in your mom’s basement
  • new methods and paradigms for privacy and personal data sovereignty
  • enforcing net neutrality as we understand it
  • mimicking large scale communication infrastructure to deceive data mining, data retention, surveillance

Visionary:

  • who owns the past, who owns your data, who owns math, who owns genes, who owns the net?
  • new models and ideas for just and fair content enumeration
  • sci-fi to sci-fact: from drones to teleportation, opening portals to other dimensions and star systems
  • free software for implants
  • (ab)using electronics and computers in new areas: homes, cars, airplanes, stock exchanges, nuclear power plants, hadron colliders
  • beyond helvetica: using technology and infrastructure for art, peace, sex, joy and fun
  • DIY martian laser weapons and cow disruptors for lulz and profit
  • applied MacGyverism

We invite you to participate at the 27th Chaos Communication Congress, focused on advancing the state of the art in hacking, making, and new perspectives on politics and privacy in the information age. Proposals of about 300 words for talks lasting either 30 or 45 minutes should be sent to our Pentabarf submission system by October 9, 2010. A notice of acceptance or decline will be sent out until November 9, 2010 by e-mail.

Note that the number of submissions is usually very high. So please try to submit a meaningful and complete description that tells us what you want to present. Sales and marketing droids are known to vanish without any trace at the congress, please refrain from submitting company propaganda. Also assume that other people submit a talk on the same topic, so try to communicate in your submission why we should pick yours. Feel free to also include some facts about yourself and your motivation.

We don´t care if your talk has already been held at a conference on the other side of the world, but we do expect up-to-date content. We offer five-minute “lightning talk” slots for “I have written this cool thing”-announcements, “someone should do this”-rants and other brief contributions. Those are not reviewed by our content team, check the wiki-page beforehand or just show up at the lightning talk slots.

While the 27C3 is an international conference that aims to present lots of content in English, we would rather have a good presentation in German than a bad one in so-called Denglisch. So please be honest when judging your language skills and choose your lecture language accordingly.

    Maybe i dont get it, but

    A) Why only _hadron_ colliders?

    B) It is not a new area for using electronics and computers. The LHC
    is only one collider in long history of colliders. Where always the colliders
    and experiment had been at the frontier of electronics and computers.

    Wie wäre es denn, wenn’s zum C3 auch mal so coole Hack-Badges gibt, wie z.B. zur DefCon.

    Ich seh’ gerade auf der Seite “DEFCON, the largest and oldest continuously running hacker and computer security convention in the world.” Ist ja wohl ein Witz…

  11. Bob says:

    So… have you solved the overcrowding issue?

  12. Jan says:

    Wie löst ihr das Ticketproblem, wird es einen Vorverkauf geben?

  13. […] közegünkbe, a kibertérbe is. Ismerjük meg egymás tisztán békés szándékait az idei Chaos Communication Congressen, melyet december 27-30. között, hétf?t?l csütörtökig tartunk […]

  14. Andreas says:

    This year, we will have a workaround for the overcrowding issue: pre-sales only. We’re working on a real fix for next year.

  15. martin b says:

    Ab wann kann ich wo Tickets kaufen? Geht das jetzt schon? Wie kann ich mich notifyen lassen?

  16. Gillich says:

    I already count the days until the 27c3….

  17. Jan says:

    When will the presale start? Is it like last year hidden and only for CCC members?

  18. Sascha Retzki says:

  22. Jonas says:

    Please think about the ticket problems. While a visit to Berlin is not the worst way to spend a few days, when you splash out on a airplane ticket you really need to know that there are event tickets available.

  24. icke says:

    Ich schließe mich Smut an. Ich würde auch gerne schon das Hotel buchen, sicher ist sicher, aber Infos zum Veranstaltungsort hab ich bisher noch nicht finden können (mag an meinen miserablen Google-Skills liegen ;-)).

    Pre-sale lässt bcc vermuten, aber gibt’s da irgendwo eine definitve Aussage?
