The 36th Chaos Communication Congress (36C3) is the 2019 edition of the annual four-day conference on technology, society and utopia organised by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) and volunteers.

The Congress offers lectures and workshops and various events on a multitude of topics including (but not limited to) information technology and generally a critical-creative attitude towards technology and the discussion about the effects of technological advances on society.

For 36 years, the congress has been organized by the community and appreciates all kinds of participation. You are encouraged to contribute by volunteering, setting up and hosting hands-on and self-organized events with the other components of your assembly or presenting your own projects to fellow hackers.

Announcement can be found on the CCC event blog.

Careables will be present at the Congress through the Global Innovation Gathering e.V. together with Cadus at the Open Infrastructure Orbit.

Call for participation

Open Infrastructure Orbit is a safe harbour for free and open infrastructure. The orbite provides space for projects, groups and communities.

We have a stage with an audience of up to 50 people. The stage is perfect for talks or panels. The talks will be recorded and uploaded to after the event. The workshop room can be used for smaller meetups. You’ll find chairs, tables and a projector. It can be used to do workshops or community meetups. The solder area will have up to 15 solder stations. Here you can solder your own hardware sets in workshops or repair things.

Note: An accepted proposal does not contain a ticket for 36c3. You need to care yourself. In general we also cannot pay for travel or accommodation. If you need support, please talk to us as early as possible.

You can enter submissions here until 2019-11-30 22:00 (Europe/Berlin).
