Please go and have a look in the wiki (or direct link to the .png). Please be aware that this is only a beta version. Keep an eye on the version numbers, we’ll be updating from time to time.
Also there are now the lists of clusters in the wiki available. Please contact us on c3-assemblies (at) lists.ccc.de if you have any serious problems with your group.

im letzten Jahr fanden viele von Euch den Weg zu unserer Assembly – den Coffeenerds! Bei uns konntet Ihr Euch Euren einmaligen Kaffee selbst zubereiten!
Wir sind eine Gruppe von Nerds, die ihre Leidenschaft für guten Kaffee teilen und Euch die Möglichkeit geben wollen, in den Genuss einzigartigen Kaffees zu kommen. Nach dem brew-it-yourself-Konzept sollen möglichst viele unterschiedliche Zubereitungsmethoden wie Aeropress und V60 von Euch ausprobiert werden.
Letztes Jahr habt Ihr viel Kaffeebohnen und Equipment gespendet, so dass jeder kostenlos genießen konnte. Vielen Dank dafür! Das soll auch dieses Jahr so sein. Wir werden zwar auch wieder eigenes Equipment mitbringen, hoffen aber trotzdem auf Eure Spenden.
Also bringt Euer Equipment oder Eure Lieblingsbohne mit oder fragt Euren Röster des Vertrauens!
Die Coffeenerds danken Euch im Voraus!
Dear Coffee lovers,
At the last congress a lot of you already found their way to our assembly of the Coffeenerds, where you could brew your own delicious coffee.
We are a group of nerds, that like to share our passion about good coffee and we want to offer as many visitors as possible the taste of unique coffees. Following our brew-it-yourself concept, a lot of brewing methods like Aeropress an V60 can be tried out.
Last year you already donated lots of coffee beans and brewing equipment, so everybody could try and drink for free. Thank you for that! We will bring our own equipment again, but still hope for donations.
So bring your equipment and your beloved beans or just ask your local roaster!
We thank you in advance,
Attention: registration for the chaos mentors program has closed”
Es ist wieder soweit – der 31C3 steht vor der Tür, und nach den tollen Erfahrungen auf dem 30C3 wollen wir das Konzept der Chaospaten und Chaospatinnen fortführen: Wir wollen Euch – die ihr zum ersten Mal den Congress besucht – dabei unterstützen, einen guten Start in den Congress zu haben.
The time has arrived again – 31C3 is coming up. After the premiere of our “Chaospatinnen” concept worked out really well last year, we are happily looking forward to continue the model at the 31C3. Chaosmentors are getting ready to support new visitors through their first Congress experience.
Der Congress wäre nicht, was er ist, wenn er nicht durch Assemblys mitgestaltet würde. Auch dieses Jahr wird es wieder Assemblys geben, und wir hoffen auf eure zahlreiche Teilnahme!
The congress wouldn’t be the way it is without assemblies. This year, of course, there will be assemblies again, and we hope to gain your active participation in it!
Nearly exactly a year back we also went public with the conference website: our wiki, that serves as the main hub for the whole community driven and decentral approach of running the congress. We are using again some semantic forms to gather the various activities provided by all of you. Thanks that we all together make this happen!
So please go ahead and plan your travel and accommodation, check out the FAQ for an overview on all the information provided and you might also wanna have a look at the how-to-survive-guide.
Just like last year, our venue will be the CCH in Hamburg. and it will be filled up again by your awesome projects organized and accessible via your assemblies.
The wiki is always a work in progess, which you can be part of: Sign-up and contribute in various ways by improving its content. You have any addition or you found any error? Don’t hesitate to change them directly! When you come across a locked page or have further questions please contact us, we will do our best to help you.
TL;DR: Please get to the CCH by 25th/26th with your assembly setup if possible
Beat the crowds and start building your assembly on the 25th! (Day -1). It makes loading so much easier for all of us and gives you time to make sure you have everything you need. Why get stuck in traffic around and inside the building? If you arrive early enough on the 25th, you may even be able to drive right into the unloading hall!
If you’re unloading a vehicle with equipment or other stuff you plan to use at the 30C3, put Tiergartenstraße 2, 20355 Hamburg in your GPS.
Once you’ve arrived, have someone in your group head to the infodesk, who will let you know how to find your assembly. You can reach the infodesk via Eingang C, check there with the Angel or Security Guard inside for further instructions. Please use this entry only for loading and unloading.
Of course, please be sure to bring enough power strips and lamps for your assembly. Be extra neighborly and bring some for others to borrow as well!
This place is already waiting for you.
German summary: Unbedingt Mehrfachsteckdosen mitbringen! Ausserdem: Cat5-Kabel, Lampen für Eure Assembly, Telefone, Werkzeug, etc…
Distributing power on 30C3 requires a lot of planning and effort, and of course a truckload of equipment. This year the setup consists of 5 kilometers (km) of CEE compliant three-phase and 8km of 230V/16A power cabling, resulting in a total of 13km of cables needed to distribute power at the venue. To connect all the cables there are also about 100 three-phase distibuters needed, 25 of them being “big” ones with 63 amperes. On top of this power backbone we will have about 800 multi-outlet power strips in place, resulting in approximately 3900 power sockets.
=> So please bring your multi-outlet power strips!
That is very important as the sockets have to supply a lot of equipment on site, and there will be fewer outlets available than needed in busy most areas. So please bring a power strip to connect to the sockets provided on-site so you can share power with other users. If everybody starts charging their devices directly from that single free power outlet, there will not be any sockets left for other users. Also don’t forget to bring CAT5 cables for your laptops please, as there will be none provided!
Especially if you plan to connect several devices, or to set up an assembly you and your group should bring plenty of power strips with you. While you’re at it, please feel free to bring lamps (especially colored ones) and anything else that helps making your assembly a nice place worthwhile. Also you might want to bring your DECT phone or your old GSM mobile with an old SIM card, your soldering station and other devices and tools that might come in handy. If you are uncertain about what to bring or not to bring to the congress, please have at look our “How To Survive” page in the wiki.
For all travellers from abroad, please keep in mind that the German power sockets might be different from the ones you use to have. So don’f forget to bring your adapters.
