The 26th Chaos Communication Congress is accepting submissions for papers, lectures, and workshops:

26C3 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. 26C3 is fun!

The 26C3 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 categories are Society, Hacking, Making, Science, Culture, and Community. Further descriptions of these are outlined on the site. You might check out last year’s event site and Flickr pool, too. (Thanks, Aram!)
