caption
Balkan Computer Congress
is an international hacker conference organized by LUGoNS – Linux Users Group of Novi Sad and Wau Holland Foundation from Hamburg and Berlin. It is the third conference taking place on the Balkans. BalCCon brings together hackers, hacktivists and computer enthusiasts from this area and they are joined by fellow hackers from all over the world. This event emphasizes the role of hacking as a means of peaceful cooperation and international understanding.

The program consist of numerous presentations, workshops and lectures about information, privacy, technology, programming, free software and socio-political issues. One part of the congress will be dedicated to hacking, projects and hacks. Live streaming of the congress will be available (the web address will be announced later).

Our goal


Our major goal is to gather all the communities from the region and abroad so we can socialize, hack, play, learn, exchange knowledge and experience and of course, party together.

BalCCon aims to become the center of the hacker community in the region as well as to provide an opportunity for all people in this part of Europe to connect and to cooperate. Last year we (LUGoNS) attended the CCC congress in Hamburg, and we considered the BalCCon idea with a lot of people and organizations there, receiving very strong support for the idea. The opportunity of expanding the community was pointed out, along with sharing the newly acquired knowledge and exchange of experience.

Program and speakers will be taken through a “call for papers” few months before the congress. We have planned some special guests whose reputation is well known in the community. All applications submitted will be reviewed and graded by the congress organization, after which a selection of accepted speakers will be made.

Why will the congress be held in Novi Sad?


LUGoNS is one of the oldest hacker communities in Serbia and we have existed successfully for more then a decade and have spread our knowledge and international experience.

The city of Novi Sad is suitable for hosting international event of this kind, because of its great geographical location, infrastructure, tourism support and mandatory technical support.
