Call for Participation to SHA2017

January 20, 2017

Traditionally there is a big hacker camp in the Netherlands every four years. The last one was OHM 2013, so this year there will be another one: SHA 2017. It will take place from August 4-8 in Zeewolde. There will be roughly 5000 hacker-minded people gathered on the terrain and we are looking for interesting presentations.

 

More information is available at https://sha2017.org/cfp/ Most practical stuff is below.

 

Submit proposals for content

 

Help make SHA2017 become the exciting, inspiring and awesome community-driven event everyone is looking forward to. Submit your proposal now, and if you know of someone you think should be present, ask them to submit!

The deadline for proposals is February 1st, 2017. But if you are Edward Snowden’s Chinese brother and come out in April we will see what we can do. Also, if you are from outside the European Union, you may have visa requirements with a substantial leadtime, please mention that in your proposal so we can give it priority for processing it.

 

All proposals submitted before the deadline will be reviewed. Notifications of acceptance or rejection will start being sent out before April 30th, 2017. A rejection can also mean that we would like to recommend your proposal to villages that have their own programmes, so do not despair.

 

The program will be made available incrementally, from May 1st, 2017.
