Auch im Jahre 2013 veranstaltet der Entropia e.V. wieder eine Gulaschprogrammiernacht in Karlsruhe. Diesmal im Zeichen unserer aller aus-dem-Himmel fallender Lieblingsklötzchen: Tetris. Wie immer findet das ganze volle vier Tage im Block, in und mit Unterstützung der Hochschule für Gestaltung statt.
Wenn du kommen möchtest, freuen wir uns über deine Anmeldung auf https://entropia.de/gulasch um schon im Voraus ungefähr zu wissen, wie viele
Blöcke fallen Besucher kommen werden und das Tetrisspiel die Veranstaltung besser planen zu können. Dort kannst du auch schon dein T-Shirt bestellen.
Damit die GPN dieses Jahr wieder mindestens genauso toll wird, wie in den vergangenen Jahren, brauchen wir deine tatkräftige Unterstützung – wir bauen auf euch: add your block! Egal ob du einen Vortrag, Workshop oder kurzen Talk halten willst oder einfach nur eine coole Idee mitbringst: Wir sind für alles offen! Ganz egal ob es darum geht, autonome Flugobjekte zu bauen, die neuste oder älteste Programmiersprache vorzustellen oder wilde Experimente mit Küchensubstanzen durchzuführen – sag uns einfach Bescheid. Deinen Vorschlag kannst du schon bei der Anmeldung einreichen oder per Mail an firstname.lastname@example.org schicken.
Und keine Sorge: Volle Fahrplanreihen verschwinden nicht. ;-)

Hackerspaces of the world.
Get ready for another collision at the
Large Hackerspace Convention IV (#LHC4)
in the RaumZeitLabor Mannheim Germany on the
13th and 14th of April 2013
Join us for another meet-up about our world, the world of hackerspaces,
including our problems, our solutions, our projects, our structures, our
chaos, our members, our publicity and everything in and around the
This time, we return the LHC to its birth place in Mannheim.
We invite all hackerspaces to come to Mannheim and have a great time
with us, debating the status quo as well as the future of hackerspaces.
During the two days, we plan to have a barcamp-esque lecture program, to
be defined by the attendees.
If you already know that you would like to talk about a topic, please
send in your idea to info (ät) raumzeitlabor.de
The topics we want to put a focus on this year are:
lots of hackerspace have acquired or built a laser cutter by now.
We want to share best practises, lessons learned, ideas,
differences between models, HOWTOs to prepare designs for cutting, etc.
Even longer than the laser cutter trend, the plastic extrusion 3D
printers have invaded hackerspaces and help up make Bits tangible.
We want to share best practises, lessons learned, ideas, differences
between models, HOWTOs to prepare designs for printing, other methods
than hot extrusion, etc.
RaumZeitLabor is not the only hackerspace that took a deep dive in
T-shirt and textile design and printing.
We want to explore techniques (foil, silk screen …), design ideas and
best practises. We will make our new cutting plotter available to you
for your own designs (can also cut vinyl foil for laptop stickers!)
The ususal. A hackerspace needs to organise its chaos a bit in order to
really work. Or does it?
We want to share rule sets, lessons learned and general opinions about
this topic. What works, what doesn’t in your space?
*Can haz Moneyz pls?*
Financing the niceties that make a hackerspace comfy, starting with the
space itself, is the biggest task of a hackerspace to stay sustainable.
We want to share concepts for funding, sponsoring pro/contra, membership
fees, food and drink prices/revenues, etc.
The event – as most hackerspace events – is highly self-organized and
dependent on volunteers. Please consider showing up on Friday and giving
us a hand, setting everything up. And please consider giving a lecture
or workshop for any of the focus topic or any other topic you think the
community will find interesting.
All infos will be gathered at
(and yes that’s a wiki page so feel free to contribute)
We’d love to see you in April in Mannheim!
[please forward this invitation to other hackerspaces]

SIGINT is an annual hacker conference organized by the Chaos Computer Club. It features talks covering both technical and social aspects of our digital society.
VOLUNTEERS For SIGINT to be as great as always, we need your help. First and foremost, we need eager volunteers to help on-site with the intricate details of organizing a conference for hundreds of people. Please register as a volunteer as soon as we have the registration online.
ARTS AND PROJECTS Asides from helping us having everything run smoothly, we’d gladly accept any kind of project that can be built upon our conference infrastructure. Do you have a cool project you want to show off? Great! You’re just dying to have a venue to try out your fancy new art installation? Cool! Drop us a line at sigint-content(at)koeln.ccc.de and we’ll see if we can sort it out.
TALKS As a community-organized conference, we want to offer you the best lectures you can get. For this, we need your talk submissions—we’re offering one-hour slots (including Q&A), and your talk will be recorded and put online after the conference. Unless you opt out, of course.
If you think you have a great talk that other hackers should listen to, great! Just submit it at our talk submission site!
In case you’re undecided on whether your talk is appropriate, here’s a list of things we are interested in:
Anything that is related to these topics or close enough is welcome too!
- Signals intelligence and surveillance techniques, e.g. digital wiretapping, deep packet inspection, etc.
- Mobile device hacking and telecommunications security and exploiting weaknesses in mobile app ecosystems
- Network neutrality, i.e. the ownership, censorship, circumvention and the politics of de facto standards
- Programming languages, the state of the art and research as well as interesting new or old applications
- Privacy in the age of big data, ensuring it via policy or technical means, ethical considerations, etc.
- (Post-)Privacy, conflict between the desires of an individual and the public regarding social networks and public spaces
- Alternative worlds, communities in the deep web, augmented reality, hackerspaces and other environments
- Storming the clouds, hacking, breaking, exploiting and securing cloud-based computing and storage ideas
- Transparency and participation in politics and governance, sousveillance, open data and its applications
- Physical hacking, making and fabbing, lockpicking, electronics and hardwarde design, artistic expression
- Painting it green, concepts for reducing the ecological footprint our urban lifestyle has on the planet
- Automation, labor market, terms of employment and future chances
As mentioned before, the above list is meant as an inspiration, and not a restriction. It is neither exhaustive nor complete.
All talk submissions will be reviewed and a benevolent selection of talks will try to represent the broadest possible spectrum to the best of our abilities.
Please try to submit a meaningful and complete description that tells us about your presentation. Keep in mind that the description is usually all the content comittee has to judge your submission by—it should be appropriately informative. Quality, not size does matter. Please refrain from submitting company or product propaganda. We don’t care if your talk has already been held at another conference, but please make sure your content is up-to-date. The lecture part of your talk should try not to exceed 45 minutes – we still need some time for audience Q&A as well as speaker handover after your talk.
English is the preferred language (bear in mind you will have a global audience due to recording), but especially local topics can be held in German if you are more comfortable that way.
SUBMISSION OF TALKS AND WORKSHOPS
All talks, lecture and workshop proposals must be submitted online using our lecture submission system.
Please follow the instructions given there. If you have any questions regarding your submission, feel free to contact us at sigint-content(at)koeln.ccc.de.
If you want to do things which don’t require a lecture or workshop room, for example an art installation or some other kind of project, please contact us directly at sigint-content(at)koeln.ccc.de. We can help you find out if it is possible to do that on SIGINT.
As a reminder: SIGINT is a non-profit oriented event and neither speakers nor organizers get paid. However, financial help on travel expenses and accommodation is a possibility, should it be really needed. Don’t be shy and state your requirements in the application when submitting your lecture. We’ll contact you after your talk is accepted to see if we can work something out.
Audio and video recordings of the lectures will be published online in various formats. All material will be available under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Germany License. Note that this license allows for the commercial use of the content to allow media organisations to use snippets from lecture recordings for their reporting. If you wish to alternatively use a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Germany License or if you require that your lecture is not recorded or streamed at all, please state this with your submission. If you don’t tell us otherwise, audio and video of your lecture will be under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Germany License.
DATES & DEADLINES That’s our schedule:
- May 5th, 2013 (23:59 UTC): Submission deadline
- June 5th, 2013: Final notification of acceptance
- July 5th-7th, 2013: SIGINT13
If there’s any further questions, don’t hesitate to drop us a line at sigint-orga(at)koeln.ccc.de.
During 29C3 pre-order season we saw over a thousand people buying shirts and hoodies online. But not everyone picked up their stuff during Congress, that’s why we have around hundred pieces of cloth that belongs to one of you.
But we would love to see you proudly walking around in our Congress cloth and not have them rot away in our backyard. So please, check your inbox for preorder-receipts you have not redeemed yet and come and get your stuff.
There will be an hand-out event on Saturday, February, 23th in CCCB around 4pm in Berlin . If you cannot make it there, please send an email to email@example.com, and we will try to arrange something.
Your 29C3 merchandize crew
 CCCB, Marienstraße 11, 10117 Berlin. firstname.lastname@example.org
=> Thank you, you all just rocked!
The 29C3 in the new location in Hamburg was great and you all made that possible! We are glad we made the move and really happy that it worked out well. However, congress is not over yet and there are still things to be done for 29C3. You can support us by:
- Adding feedback for talks that you watched
- Providing general feedback regarding congress
- Adding your Congress pictures and videos
- Linking your blogpostings or press articles
- Joining the effort to provide subtitles for ALL the lecture videos
You are anticipating the next Congress as impatiently as we are?
Go and watch ALL the talks: Documentation is still in progress, but most of the talks are already available. We’ll let you know when everything is finished.
Also there are a lot of events in between to shorten the wait:
- 29.03.-01.04.2013: Easterhegg in Paderborn
- 30.05.-02.06.2013: GPN in Karlsruhe
- 05.07.-07.07. 2013: Sigint in Cologne

There’s still a few open slots in the Lightning Talks happening on Days 2, 3 and 4.
We’re especially looking for Pecha Kucha talks in the first half of Day 3. There’s also plenty of space open for 5 minute talks on Day 4.
If there’s space, you can submit your Lightning Talk as late as Noon on the day you want to present.
There’s even a chance to do a remote lightning talk on Day 4. Check the wiki for more details!
As we head into Day 1, the 29c3 Setup is nearly complete. As you can see from this small sample of sights from the 29c3, we’re making very creative use of our much, much larger space without losing the feeling that makes the congress so special.
As FEM banner above suggests, talks will be streamed from the 29c3.
Below there are some lovely shots of our upstairs lounge, affectionately called Ten Forward:
To eliminate any potential confusion from the last post about clothing: Pre-Ordered clothing will remain reserved until the end of the 29c3. Even if certain items are sold out to the general public, you can pick up your pre-orders at any time during the 29c3.
In addition to the standard WiFI flavors offered at previous CCC Events, you can now connect to Spacenet federated authenticated WiFi.
Even if you don’t belong to a Spacenet connected node, you can add an extra layer of security to your WiFi traffic by logging in as a 29c3 guest.
Check out more details on the 29c3 Spacenet page for more details!
If you have pre-ordered a t-shirt, hoodie, or zipper, you can pick it up at the counter next to the cash desk during day 0 (aka today, December 26th, once the cash desks open) or day 1 (aka tomorrow, December 27th) only!
In this blogpost we introduce you to the new concept of shared spaces that can be found among the assemblies.
An earlier blogpost introduced you to the concept of workshops run by assemblies.
These assemblies already registered seats for themselves and requested optional “special seats” specifically for workshops.
We assigned seats to every assembly that registered on time. Fortunately, we had more than enough seats to fulfill all requests. In order to effectively utilize the extra space and help foster a greater sense of community, we created “shared spaces”. These spaces are clearly marked signs hung from the ceiling or placed on the corresponding tables.
Feel free to use those shared places for:
- Your assembly’s workshop
- Just sitting down if you’re looking for a seat
If you have an assembly you designated the number of seats you needed for your group, plus the number of seats required for your workshops. We took the additional seating required for workshops into account when creating the shared spaces. Seats assigned to your assembly are yours for the duration of the 29c3.
However, you will need to coordinate the use of the shared spaces with neighboring assemblies. Assemblies with scheduled workshops always take priority. The shared spaces are free unless there is a scheduled workshop taking place.
If your assembly is planning a workshop that requires the use of the shared space, please make sure to properly reserve it well in advance. The best way to reserve it the shared space is to place a sign on the table clearly stating when your workshops will take place. (This will also help attendees know where your workshops are.) If you are using the shared space prior to a workshop, please make sure to leave with enough time for the workshop to set up. As well, once you’re done with your workshop, please tidy up and leave the shared space as you would like to find it.
The Chaos Computer Club is committed to providing a safe and comfortable experience for everybody attending our events, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, physical appearance or disability. We do not tolerate harassment of participants of the Congress in any form.
If you are getting harassed at the 29c3, dial 113 from any DECT phone to reach the awareness, anti-conflict, de-escalation team. See the 29c3 Anti-Harassment Policy on the wiki for the latest details.
If you’re unloading a vehicle with equipment or other stuff you plan to use at the 29c3, put Tiergartenstraße 2, 20355 Hamburg in your GPS. Head to
Eingang A Eingang C and check with the Angel or Security Guard inside for further instructions. Please use this entry only for loading and unloading.
We’re looking forward to seeing you in Hamburg!

And yes, the WiFi is currently working at the CCH.
Yes, there is still time to submit your LT! Check out the wiki for more details!
As usual, there will be three sessions of lightning talks at the 29c3. Because of the volume and style of submissions received so far, we’ll have a standard round of 5 minute lightning talks on each day. However, we’ll still have a Pecha Kucha round in the first half of Day 3 as well as introducing a round of FOSDEM style 15-minute lightning talks on Day 4.
Thanks to all the workshops and assemblies, the LT schedule is already filling up much faster than any previous congress. If you’d like to get your 5, 6 2/3rds or 15 minutes of fame in, submit your Lightning Talk proposal before you arrive in Hamburg!
