The 25th Chaos Communication Congress (25C3)

is the annual four-day conference organized by the Chaos Computer Club
in Berlin, Germany. First held in 1984, it since has established
itself as
"The European Hacker Conference", attracting a diverse audience of
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
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,
on current research with high technical merit. Traditionally, the
majority of
all lectures at 25C3 revolve around hacking. Topics in this domain
include but
are in no way limited to: programming, hardware hacking, cryptography,
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
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
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
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,
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
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
inviting groups such as developer teams, projects and activists to
themselves and their topics. Developer groups are also encouraged to
ask for
support to hold smaller on-site developer conferences and meetings in
course of the Congress.

Further Information

The Chaos Communication Congress is a non-profit oriented event and
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 out!

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

For further information and questions please feel free to contact


All proposals must be submitted online using our online lecture
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@cccv.de but do NOT
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
skills, when submitting your lecture.


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
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
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
formats. The Chaos Communication Congress Proceedings are published on
and online. Only reviewed and accepted talks and presentations will be
