About the visitors of the conference

What is the target group of the conference?

The conference is a means to support understanding each other in the Project Oekonux and with other people who come to similar questions in their field. This ranges from Free hardware projects to political analyses.

Open-mindedness regarding other approaches but also the possibility of sustaining criticism are important. But above all a desire for a (joint) development and learning is needed.

How many people do you expect at the conference?

The first conference has been attended by about 170 persons, the second and third by about 150. We will be able to give estimates if you follow the request for registration.

Conference documentation

Will the conference be documented?

We want to document all contributions by a paper or the slides presented. However, since this is an exhausting task stay tuned until everything is complete.

Will there be recordings?

We want to audio record all contributions and will put them to the conference web site. However, it may take some time until the material is prepared.

Helping the conference

Does it help if I register?

It definitely will help us if you register for the conference. Then we can estimate better for how many people we need to be prepared.

May I tell others about the conference?

This is one of the easiest ways to help the conference.

Do you need money?

If it is possible for you, you may support the conference by donating some money to the Projekt Oekonux e.V. (registered association to support Oekonux in case a legal entity is needed).

As reason for transfer please only give donation. If you mention the conference in the reason for transfer we must use the money for the conference due to association law. This makes us less flexible.

In case you have any questions here please contact smerten@oekonux.de.

Do you need help during the conference itself?

We need people for different tasks on the conference. If you would like to do that, please contact the Oekonux project team or simply subscribe to the mailing list for helpers.
