Assemble, launch, go!

Tl;dr: Read at least the Important part and register your assembly on as soon as possible, but not later than Friday, November 23rd.

Year after year we called for you to come, assemble, build, hack and to be awesome. Last year we asked you to assemble the assemblies to become one even more awesome creature. It was splendid. This year, it shall be created again and thus we call: Assemble, Launch, Go!

For now, most of the exhibition hall is void. Calm. Unwritten. It’s up to us to create spaces, to fill it with lights, sound and atmosphere, with hacks and gear and people. Make it alive and let the chaos-magic happen. Bring projects to show, ideas to amaze, furniture to lounge – manifest yourself and create a diversity of habitats to connect all the people that make the dream real. Get up, little groups of friends as well as huge amalgamations, and come to Leipzig again. Show your projects, share your ideas, bring your stuff, pose a question, host a session, do workshops and maybe, finally, sit down and listen.

Have in mind that there will be thousands of people in one big hall. Too much noise or light can become an issue. So lets make it a warm, welcoming, and comfortable situation which will be a source of energy for all of us. Considering this, very much anything is possible: You never leave the house without your good old Cray 90? No problem, heavy current is available. Always wanted to build a dome for your assembly? No problem, just keep it “B1 flame resistant”, stay below 30square meters roofed and let us know in your registration. You might have guessed it, there are some technical regulations. Check them first, before you plan big. And no worries, we provide tables and seats as usual for all groups who come with a backpack and smaller things to show and hack. Bring what you have, take a seat, create, get feedback, meet others and team up.

Since everything has to evolve, we have two new shiny things:
First there is a brand new registration software. Hejhej – that’s awesome! If you have troubles there, please let us know. Which brings us to the second thing: We have a ticketing system online to take care of your requests. Just write a mail to 35c3 [at]


  • Build-up approval for larger structures is in the afternoon of the 25th. Please don’t arrive with larger structures without telling anyone.
  • Hall 4 will be part of the event this year. Therefore there will be no storage space in Hall 4 during the event. If you need storage space assistance, have questions about build up or delivering your stuff, you get guidance from the LOC via 35c3 [at]
  • We will have a very long Weekend (23-26), and mostly all shops will be closed. Better check opening times of your preferred stores or prepare yourselves with snacks and cables as you need! Plan ahead.
  • Music: you’ll get asked while registration if you want to play music (are you sure?!?) in your Assembly. If yes, the Assemblies Team will contact you with details about GEMA registration.
  • Register until 23.11.2018 on
  • For all questions about assemblies, contact us at 35c3 [at]
  • Pack your ticket.

So, go call us for a place! Assembly registration ends on Friday, November 23rd. Better register soon.

Ah, one more thing. There is a request from the Kids space. The kids will be issued a hacker pass (Stamp book) to collect assemblies they have been to. Please bring your hackspace/community stamp to make the little rascals happy.
