37C3 Call for Assemblies

37C3 Call for Assemblies

tl;dr: Register your assembly as soon as possible but no later than December 3rd 23:43 CET at https://events.ccc.de/congress/2023/hub/backoffice/.

Each year we call on you: Come, gather, build, hack and be great! This time we are returning to our home for the 29th to 33rd Congresses: the Congress Center Hamburg. That means a little less indoor camping and more of a “hack center” feeling. In a total of 6 areas spread over 3 floors, assemblies will find places to show projects, hack together, discuss, exchange knowledge and network.

The huge exhibition halls in Leipzig gave your creativity (almost) free rein in terms of structures and installations and you built some fantastic things. This year in Hamburg it’s all about finding the right balance between table spaces and structures. Of course the following applies to all assembly areas: make the tables nice, bring projects and things to touch - whatever you can think of, as long as it doesn’t block the escape routes and isn’t flammable (B1… 😉 ). As far as structures are concerned, especially larger ones, we do need to coordinate. There will certainly be room for one or two larger installations, but larger dome cities would take up too many tables and seats. Five of the rooms for assemblies with a height of around 4m are less suitable for large structures. The largest assembly area will be found in parts of Hall H. This is the best place for larger assemblies and larger self-designed areas.

Please let us know exactly what you are planning when you register so that we can work with you to find the space best suited for you.

Workshops and sessions have taken place in many assemblies in recent years. We look forward to your contributions to the program again this time. Please let us know whether and to what extent and size you are planning something and if a shared session table in your area might be sufficient for your plans when you register.


  • There will be a building inspection for larger structures. Please do not come with larger structures without telling us first.
