Self-organized Sessions

Usually we called this section "workshops". Then we told you on this page, that a workshop doesn't need to be an event with hands-on and making – but sure it could! We said that a "workshop" is just something, that happens at a special time and place. Therefore we changed the name to "Self-organized Sessions" that includes everything - everything that is organized by you!

Such an event can be...

  • ... a gathering of a project group or on a special topic,
  • ... a contest or a game
  • ... a small talk or lecture
  • ... a screening of a movie
  • ... something with music, literature and art
  • ... a follow-up-discussion on one ob the "big talks" or another topic that happened rencently
  • ... everything else you think that needs to take place at the camp
  • ... and hey, it might even be a workshop!

Your Self-organized Session goes Camp

On this page you can find a list of planned self-organized sessions by participants of the Camp and you'll find the necessary information to create your own one.

The idea is, that we will be able to provide a global workshop and talk calendar: Everyone being at the Camp is able to look at this Static:calendar and will find out what self-organized sessions are currently running besides the talks.


To register your self-organized sessions just use the self-organized session form.

For now, the crucial information are
  • Name of the self-organized session (which will be used as the site name)
  • Abstract (short description, 1-3 sentences)
  • valid email address (might be used by the orga team to contact you)
The following information can also be added later
  • detailed description, it will be the main body of your session page (that's the Free text field: This field allows the usual mediawiki syntax, feel free to add URLs, pictures etc)
  • some information about the person and village performing the self-organized session
  • rough start- and end-time for the schedule
  • location


Please select a location for your self-organized Session while filling the form.

Session tents

We provide a corner (around 1/3rd of the whole area) of the three hackcenter/workshop tents for your self-organized sessions:


All villages that have selected maybe or yes in the section "Provides location for sessions" in the village form will show up as a location. Please get in touch with the village concerned, if you want to use their location for your session.

Some villages are happy to host "external" sessions, eg:

  • please add your village and your topics wanted :)

Registered Self-organized Sessions

Already registered self-organized sessions are available as list or calendar. You can use the existing self-organized sessions as a reference, if you are unsure how it should look like.

The calendar is updated using the semantics feature of the self-organized sessions form and template. This may take some time, so be patient...


There are 1 registered self-organized sessions.

The following calendar shows all registered activities like workshops, talks at assemblies or in the workshop rooms, hand-ons, and stuff like mentioned above.

You can find a non-javascript version of the calendar formated as a table on the Timetable-Page. If the session-calendar does not work on your system, this is a place to go and check out the timeslots for all events.
