11|12|13 September 2015, Novi Sad, Vojvodina, Serbia, Europe, Earth, Milky Way

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 second conference taking place on the Balkan. 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 mean 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, project 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 ofcourse, party together.

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

Program and speakers will be taken through “call for papers” few months before the congress. We have planned some special guests whose reputation is well known in the community. All the applications and lectures will be stored in the database with the possibility of grading. 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. Call For Papers
