About eth0:2011

A conference for hackers, developers and internet residents
Organised by the eth0 foundation and supported by the Hxx foundation
In 'de panoven', Zevenaar, The netherlands

This winter, we are gonna do things a bit different from what you might be used from us. We are going to focus on workshops, getting things done, getting busy and making a difference. eth0 is searching for workshops interesting to those who like to tinker with hardware, software or flex their skills to defend (internet) freedom


The following subjects are considered interesting and relevant for eth0:

  • Privacy
  • Security
  • Ethical hacking
  • Hackerspaces
  • Open Source
  • Open Technologies
  • Politics regarding Piracy, Copyright and Intellectual Property, Freedom of speech
  • Bio-Hacking
  • Solutions to complex IT problems
  • ...

The workshops that we'd like to see would probably following the next few 'rules':

  • A quarter of an hour of introduction, letting people know what you are going to show, what level of experience and skills you expect from those attending the workshop
  • About an hour or maybe two of actual 'tooltime'.
  • Hands on help during the whole 'tooltime', make sure people get a result at the end.
  • If its a group project, make sure you have some infrastructure setup in advance so you as the organizer wont have deal with that during the actual workshop.


All entries must be submitted to us by email to We will be needing:

  • Your name, nickname or pseudonym, and how exactly it should appear in the program website
  • The title of your submission
  • A short bio of you or your group
  • Optionally, a picture of you / your group
  • A short (150 words max) summary/description of your subject
  • A detailed description of your subject
