The “Labortage” are an annual event arranged by the Labor in Bochum.
Its main purpose is to be a meetingpoint and community for people, who
want to know how things work and tinker cool stuff. We use and develop
free software. We program microcontrollers, etch boards and solder
everything one can imagine. We welcome even creative arts. Long talk
short: The members of Das Labor e.V. want to create new and useful
things using technology, to educate, to criticize and improve without
taking a political position.

However people who can explain who things work are of course as
important as a good equipment. Das Labor e.V. offers speeches,
workshops and discussions in a wide variety of tech related topics. Of
course its possible for you to share your knowledge with an audience.
You’re highly interested in a topic and you want to let your
enthusiasm infect others? Well you have always the opportunity to give
a talk even when the Labortage are over. Of course we don’t limit our
work and tinkering to events. There is always something being build or
coded – alone or with others. The never ending flow of knowledge
within a friendly athmosphere is an important condition for continous
development: Because everything that shows you how the world goes
round is at home in our hackerspace.

Topics:

Focus for the Labortage 2009 should be on following topics:

    * T1: Practical usage of microcontrollers and FPGAs

You have a project featuring a microcontroller and want to present it.
Or maybe you want to develop together with others a project.

    * T2: Software in the wild

You wrote a cool software, hunt an idea or a programming-language. Tho
you may not neccessary need to know what it is good for. However you
gathered quite some knowled which you are eager to share with others.
Or for some reason you want to discuss about the latest
software-trends and improve existing beginnings.

    * T3: Math, security, computer sience in generel, physics, electronics

“Ein Drittel? Nee, ich will mindestens ein Viertel.”
- Horst Szymaniak

    * T4: Basics and correct approach

There are many subject for which newbies or shiftees may not know the
basics. There are certain procedure-standards, which need correct
approaches. You had a long way learning all the things you had and
want to ease introduction for everyone.

    * T5: Cultureflash

You are interested in (sub-)culture and discovered something juicy?
Share it! Perhaps its licenses or philosophical paradigms you want
give a closer understanding of. However some might even be interested
in meme or other digital absurdities. Or maybe its world domination?
Well, give it a try!

    * T6: Lifestyle

“Lebenskunst ist die Kunst des richtigen Weglassens.
- Coco Chanel”

This applies for the LABOR e.V., too. Be it for cooking, organizing
our calendar, the notorious chaos on our desks or just for social
interference.

These topics shall be arranged as a manifold program of workshops and
talks. Guided construction kit assembly into working hardware is just
one of the many possible activities. There will be a HackTheBox
project our visitors may want to pwn, too.

Just as it was last year a social component is a mandatory field. Das
LABOR e.V. wants to establish and encourage social contacts. Alongside
our ‘nerds cooking in the wild’ and the coffee
flatrate all lecturers will enjoy the Labortage for free.

Concepts for workshops and abstracts for speeches and/or papers you
are willing to talk about may be e-mailed to: papers_at_das-labor.org
Deadline is october, 1st 23:59 GMT

We’re looking forward to welcome you at the Labor…

Cheers

Das LABOR e.V.
