Поздрав до сите,
Се приближува крајот на годината а со тоа и уште еден Chaos
Communication congress.
Рокот за поднесување на материјалите е 5-ти Октомври што значи имам
цел месец за да се смисли нешто. :)
Постои и финансиска помош за луѓето кои ќе учестуваат како излагачи на
конгресот, ова ми го потврди еден од излагачите и нашиот
лански домаќин Ханес.

Сите информации ги имате подолу, aко сакате повеќе информации оваа
нишка може да се искористи за тоа ...

25C3: Nothing to hide
25th Chaos Communication Congress
December 27th to 30th, 2008
Berlin, Germany http://events.ccc.de/congress/2008/


is the annual four-day conference organized by the Chaos Computer Club
(CCC) in Berlin, Germany.First held in 1984, it since has established
itself as "the European Hacker Conference" attracting a diverse
audience of thousands of hackers, scientists, artists, and utopists
from all around the world.

We want you to join and be a part of this unique event which serves as
a public platform for cross-culture inspiration and borderless
networking. 25C3 is fun!


The 25C3 conference program is roughly divided into six general
categories. These categories serve as guidelines for your submissions
(and later as a means of orientation for your prospective audience).
However, it is not mandatory for your talk to exactly match the
descriptions below. Anything that is interesting and/or funny will be
taken into consideration.


The "Hacking" category addresses topics dealing with technology,
concentrating on current research with high technical merit.
Traditionally, the majority of all lectures at 25C3 revolve around

Topics in this domain include but are in no way limited to:
programming, hardware hacking, cryptography, network and system
security, security exploits, and creative use of technology.


The "Making" category is all about making and breaking things and the
wonderful stuff you can build in your basement or garage. Most welcome
are submissions dealing with the latest in electronics, 3D-fabbing,
climate-change survival technology, robots and drones, steam machines,
alternative transportation tools and guerilla-style knitting.


The "Science" category covers current or future objects of scientific
research that have the potential to radically change our lives, be it
basic research or projects conducted for the industry.

We are looking for talks and papers on the state of the art in this
domain, covering subjects such as nano technology, quantum computing,
high frequency physics, bio-technology, brain-computer interfaces,
automated analysis of surveillance cctv, etc.


Technology development causes great changes in society and will
determine our future. This category is for all talks on subjects like
hacker tools and the law, surveillance practices, censorship,
intellectual property and copyright issues, data retention, software
patents, effects of technology on kids, and the impact of technology
on society in general.


Shaping the world we live in means making it more interesting,
entertaining and beautiful. The hacker culture has many facets ranging
from electronic art objects, stand-up comedy, geek entertainment,
video game and board game culture, music, 3D art to e-text literature
and beyond. If you like to show your art and teach others how to make
their lives more enjoyable, this category is for you.


In addition to individual speakers the Chaos Communication Congress is
also inviting groups such as developer teams, projects and activists
to present themselves and their topics.

Developer groups are also encouraged to ask for support to hold
smaller on-site developer conferences and meetings in the course of
the Congress.

Further Information

The Chaos Communication Congress is a non-profit oriented event and
speakers are not paid. However, financial help on travel expenses and
accommodation is possible. It needs to be agreed upon after acceptance
of the submission, though. Don't be shy and state your requirements in
the application when submitting your lecture and we'll work something

You can find the preliminary agenda and additional information on our
25C3 website at http://events.ccc.de/congress/2008/.

submission system at https://cccv.pentabarf.org/submission/25C3.
Please follow the instructions given there. If you have any questions
regarding your submission, feel free to contact us at 25c3-content
(at) cccv.de but do NOT submit your lecture via e-mail.


25C3 is an international event and we want to have a lot of
interesting talks in English for the benefit of our growing number of
international guests. So ideally we are looking for speakers who can
give lectures and/or workshops in either English or German. But while
we are interested in maximizing the quality of presentations, the
topic and its relevance to our community are our main concern. So
don't worry about your English skills: the language of a submission is
not a criteria for accepting or rejecting it!

If you feel insecure talking in English, have received criticism on
your language skills from your audience before, or if you just fear
that the value and understandability of your lecture might suffer,
please offer your talk in German. Please tell us if you are a native
speaker of English or have similar skills, when submitting your


Accepted speakers can optionally hand in a paper which will be
published with an ISBN in the 25C3 Proceedings. Papers will be
accepted in Portable Document Format (PDF) only and should be around 5
pages. The PDF file must not be password-protected or contain other
restrictions. Paper size should be DIN A4 in portrait orientation. All
margins must be set to at least 2 cm (0.78 inches). Pictures should be
greyscale and up to 300dpi. Apart from that, you are free to use any
layout you want.


Accepted speakers are asked to hand in slides used in their talks.
Please use a well-known format for your slides.


Audio and video recordings of the lectures will be published online in
various formats. The Chaos Communication Congress Proceedings are
published on paper and online. Only reviewed and accepted talks and
presentations will be published.
