HaxoGreen 2012 – Call for Proposals 1

After more than 80 satisfied campers in 2010, the long awaited third iteration of HaxoGreen, in its 2012 edition is finally here! After a very successful start into the forays of international hackcamps and hackerfests, hackerspaces and hackerspace-folks from all over Europe and beyond will meet for an informal exchange of knowledge on the this third iteration of our 4-day outdoors summer-camp.

Still cosy at a maximum of 140 people, still at the same perfect setting that offers commodities for shopping, outdoors for camping and areas filled to the brink with adventure and history. The camp will take place from Thursday, July 26th till Sunday, July 29th and be bristling with geeks and their innovative ideas.

Talks, workshops, live music in the evenings, geocaching, fresh food and most of all very interesting people make this an event that is not to be missed.

Whether you’re hacking on your project, looking for new and exciting ideas or just craving to share 3 midsummer nights outdoors, socialising with other hackers, artists and geeks, HaxoGreen is the place to be. No need to be a 1337 H4X0r, we welcome all inquisitive people from around the globe.

The camp is organized by syn2cat a.s.b.l.,  the association that brought you the Luxembourgian hackerspace. We appreciate your participation, be it by holding a lecture, tutoring a workshop or presenting your projects and ideas during a 10 min lightning talk.

Location

The camp is located at the scouts’ grounds near the city of Dudelange in the southern region of Luxembourg. The camping ground features adequate restrooms and shower facilities. Indoor rooms for lectures and workshops are also available. The nearby town of Dudelange, near the borders to France and Germany, offers access to shops and markets for all of your grocery needs.

Suggested presentation and workshop topics

Participate with your lectures, panel discussions, workshops, or lightning talks. (Though you can give a lightning talk without submitting its topic.) Your lectures and workshops don’t have to be centered on or limited to technology. Lectures with a background in
society, community, science and art are welcome as well. Here are some examples of the inter-disciplinary fields that our audience would be interested in, but feel free to suggest your own:

  • Green IT and Green Hacks
