As announced earlier, there will be no Congress and no centrally organised rC3 in 2022. This is a challenge that the community was happy to accept. Various groups are organising decentralised events with talks, workshops and other things in the usual Congress season. Parts of these events can be visited in person and other parts can be followed online.
We have prepared an overview of all these events, sorted by (physical) location. This list might be expanded in the coming weeks. All broadcasts will be viewable on media.ccc.de live and as recordings later.
Please remember that the individual groups are organising these events autonomously and are individually responsible for their own content.
We are listing the event locations with links to OpenStreetMap. All locations have their own rules for access, some require tickets. Check the websites of the individual events before travelling.
Are you a hackerspace or a chaos-adjacent group that wants to hold an event around Congress time? Please do! You need help with stuff? Feel free to contact the organisers of other decentral events this year in the matrix channel #jev22koordination:matrix.org.
