Static:Lightning Talks

From 34C3_Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Lightning Talks are short lectures (almost) any congress participant may give!

Bring your infectious enthusiasm to an audience with a short attention span! Discuss a program, system or technique! Pitch your projects and ideas or try to rally a crew of people to your party or assembly! Whatever you bring, make it quick! To get an idea what Lightning Talks are about and how they work, look at last year's sessions at [1].


The Lightning Talks are full! You can still try to register a talk using the Lightning Talk form, but as of Dec. 26, we already have ten talks on the waiting list.


Lightning talk sessions are offered on Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4 of the congress.

Each session starts at 11:30 and ends at 13:30, with a 15 minute break from 12:30 to 12:45.

All sessions take place in Saal Borg. Resistance is futile.

There is also an additional, self-organized session for all the lightning talks on the waiting list. See Session:Lightning_Talks_Self_Organized for details, schedule and contact info.

In the unlikely case that something bad happens to the wiki or this page, follow @C3_LightningTLK on twitter for announcements.

Below is the current, preliminary schedule of the confirmed lightning talks.

Day 2, 11:40
How can important information reach refugees/newcomers?

Day 2, 12:15
Viele von uns haben neben dem angestellten Hauptjob kleine Einnahmen nebenbei. Oder könnten sie haben. Aber die Menge rechtfertigt kein eigenes Unternehmen. Man braucht ein Unternehmen, in das man nach Bedarf ein- und austreten kann, und das einem die Gelder einfach uns stressfrei weiterleitet. Eine Genossenschaft. Es wird erläutert, wieso, wie das geht und was die Voraussetzungen sind. Und Interesseanmeldungen gesammelt.

Lightning:The story of how eduroam went down for a day at Ulm University and the problem's peculiar resolution
Day 2, 12:55
A few weeks ago on an early monday morning it was reluctantly determined by us and our staff that eduroam somehow stopped working at our university in Ulm over the weekend.

Quickly we found that none of the usual solutions would work this time as every service on its own was working just perfectly.

Be part of an astonishing journey into the depth of the network of Ulm University, the protocol spanning tree and malconfiguration and see with your own eyes how an unplugged network device caused eduroam and our public wifi named welcome to break down and learn how to avoid these circumstances in your own network as they can be reproduced in many scenarios.

In this short talk I present the project and briefly discuss a vision of democratizing coding and VR.

p≡p wants to roll out mass encryption.

This approach of taking away crypto needs from users’ view can be plugged into existing communication software.

Lightning:Interledger - What If Money Worked Like the Internet?
Day 3, 12:10
What if we could stream micropayments as fast, easily and cheaply as data? What if we could replace large, closed payment networks like Visa and SWIFT with an open, interconnected system? Interledger is an open payment protocol inspired by TCP/IP that could be the foundation for an "Internet of Value". It uses a simple packet format like IP to route value across independent payment networks. Early versions of the protocol are being used to connect cryptocurrencies, blockchains, banks, and mobile money systems.

Lightning:Formal verification for the greater good
Day 3, 13:00
It is criminally easy to make a mistake designing concurrent systems - and cars, planes and nuclear plants just happen to be such. Formal verification is one solution, somewhat secluded from mainstream engineering; this talk aims to bring more awareness to it.

Lightning:Small modifications
Day 3, 13:05
What would hacking look like, if it is not only with computers, but with tactile materials and embodied spaces?

What if the material traces of care, play and delights are allowed to flourish, like plants sprouting between the cracks of the pavement?

How would the interstices between private and public spaces feel like?

Poetic hallucinations on primitive hacking, everyday resourcefulness, co-existing micro-cosmoses...

The brain is not a computer. ...start something we cannot finish...

Lightning:Quality of life as political paradigm ... because winter is coming!
Day 3, 13:10
The talk uses a metaphorical comparison to the Game-of-Thrones universe to address boring politics: How to deal with inconvenient and unpopular truths like the unsustainability of our current economic system. The talk then proposes to switch the optimization criterion: away from "boosting economic growth" and "creating jobs" towards "maximizing quality of life".

Day 4, 11:40
Given the importance of software programs, scripts, packages, etc. in scientific work, it is clear that these will become more important publishable units. It's finally happening for data.

This talk briefly explains a few options of adding citation information to a software project.

Adaconf - How to make a conference in 31 days

This November 25th was the first iteration of a general purpose IT conference for women and trans people - Adaconf. We were amazed by the response as our open beta test got three international speakers, whereof two travelled from America solely for this.

Working in an agile manner, focusing on the Minimally Viable Product and utilizing the special super powers of the volunteers, we managed to create a three track conference in 31 days. In this talk I will share my best tips and tricks about creating a conference.

Lightning:All Creatures Welcome - CW Rape
Day 4, 13:10
There's a very serious and tragically common problem which does not receive enough attention. After the events of June 2016, some members of the CCC have made great efforts to ensure a safe and supportive space but others apparently would prefer "business as usual". As Desmond Tutu once said "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor". Unless the CCC can make a unified and authoritative decision, what happened then will happen again.

Lightning:Working for the military - can civil clauses keep us away from it?
Day 4, 13:15
Military is inherently interested to be at the top level of new

technological development. As a result, many researchers from several different disciplines (not restricted to technical development) are easily confronted with the situation that their research results are used or financed by the military.

Because many civil researchers do not want to serve the military, some universities, applied universities and federal states not only in Germany established a so called civil clause. The idea is to restrict cooperation of these institutions with the military and arms industry.

Usually, the clauses are undermined because cooperation with arms industry and military are too lucrative. We discuss a recent example: a cooperation of the City University of Applied Sciences in Bremen with the German armed forces despite a civil clause in the federal state
