MRMCD 2017

Call for Participation

The MetaRheinMainChaosDays (MRMCD) are proud to announce that they will host the first Bundesdatenschau (federate data show[0]) on September 1st to 3rd - 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.

More information on the event can be found on 2017.mrmcd.net.
