also if you know someone who is going there who might have interest, please

# Call for sessions "about:freedom" during 36C3

In the context of the 36th Chaos Communication Congress happening from
December 27th to 30th in Leipzig, the FSFE is happy to host an assembly again
inside the cluster "about:freedom". We offer attention and a stage for
self-organised sessions by and for our community and friends, and this is our
call for participation.

For our sessions at the FSFE assembly, we are looking for inspiring talks,
hands-on workshops, community/developer/strategy meetings or any other public,
informative or collaborative activities. Topics can be anything that is about
or related to Free Software – from your private project to global community
projects. While we welcome submissions on technical topics, we also further
encourage non-technical talks that address philosophical, political,
economical, and/or other aspects regarding Free Software, particularly for
this year related to digital sustainability. As part of our cluster
about:freedom, we also look forward to sessions about related subjects that
have a clear connection to Free Software, in particular privacy, data
protection, encryption, the commons and internet policies.

For our friends, it is also possible to have informal meetings, announcements
or other activities at our assembly. In this case, get in touch and we will
see what we can do. If you are a musician and like to help forming our first
Free-Software-song sing-along big band, please also get in touch.
