Tickets available

2017-06-25

Tickets are now available for MRMCD 2017: Bundesdatenschau. You can reserve your spot at presale.mrmcd.net. We expect there to be tickets available for sale on site, but note that all merchandise such as the unique MRMCD 2017 conference mug as well as other surprise gadges and t-shirts are only available for presale tickets.

Despite some organizational challenges imposed by this year’s switch of locations, we can keep ticket prices at the same rates as in the last years. This year’s MRMCD take place at their traditional date (first weekend of September) but at a different spot in Darmstadt: The Piloty building of TU Darmstadt. Regular visitors might remember this building from mrmcd101b through to mrmcd1001b.

We are still in search of talks and workshops about both making public data useful and protecting private data, as well as about our regular topics like IT security, software, open source, embedded systems, networks, anonymity and everything related. We are looking forward to your submittions at cfp.mrmcd.net.

If you have any questions, you can reach us at parkaufsicht()mrmcd.net.

Call for Participation

2017-05-22

The MetaRheinMainChaosDays (MRMCD) are proud to announce that they will host the first Bundesdatenschau (federate data show) - we’re looking forward to all kinds of data accompanied by their owners!

We are looking for talks und workshops taking an in-depth look at the usage of public data and the protection of private data. We’re asking – How are public data resources (ab)used? Where and how has data been made public that shouldn’t have been? Who’s grabbing private data, and what are you doing against it? We’re interested in both social and technical answers. You can submit your talks or workshops at https://cfp.mrmcd.net/2017/ until July 23rd.

The MRMCD are an annual IT conference of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC). It is organized by the MRMCD e.V. in cooperation with local hackerspaces, CCC groups, and nearby universities. The conference takes place on the first weekend of September, as per usual. This year’s conference location is the Piloty building of TU Darmstadt, where the MRMCD have taken place previously in 2010.

If you’re interested in submitting a talk, but you aren’t quite sure about the suitability or wording - please reach out to us at parkaufsicht@mrmcd.net. If you’re a first-time speaker, we’re happy to help you, too. If you have ideas for great talks or speakers, we’d be excited to hear those.
