24C3: Volldampf voraus! (2007)

24C3: Content preparation in progress

24C3 Content meeting

We’re extremely happy with the first round of planning for the upcoming 24th Chaos Communication Congress. Lots of crazy ideas are currently being tossed around and with a little luck some of them will eventually end up in the final program. Expect lots of Steampunk, discussions around current computer security nightmares as well as burning political issues and (if you keep your fingers crossed) an exciting speaker for the keynote talk.

We still want your submissions for the congress (the Call for Participation has not ended yet). So, submit your life-changing and amazing talk or workshop today!

24th Chaos Communication Congress: Call for Participation

Spread the word! Invite exciting people! Hand in amazing talks and workshops!

The Chaos Communication Camp is over, so it’s time to announce the Call for Participation of the 24th Chaos Communication Congress 2007 (24C3). The Chaos Communication Congress is the annual four-day conference organized by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) and taking place in Berlin, Germany. The 24C3s slogan is Volldampf voraus! — the German equivalent of “full steam ahead” a particular request for talks and projects featuring forward looking hands-on topics. The Chaos Computer Club has always encouraged creative and unorthodox interaction with technology and society, in the good tradition of the real meaning of “hacking”.

This year’s congress introduces a new category for talks called “Making”. This category is all about making and breaking things and the wonderful stuff you can build in your basement or garage. Most welcome are submissions dealing with the latest in electronics, 3D-fabbing, climate-change survival technology, robots and drones, steam machines, alternative transportation tools and guerilla-style knitting.

As always, the date of this event is December 27th to 30th.

24C3 is coming up….

We’re in the process of finalizing the Call for Participation for the 24th Chaos Communication Congress. Expect more soon. One thing that we can tell you now: this congress is going to be hot – steaming hot, that is.
