The longest running hacker conference anywhere has announced this year's agenda. The 19th annual Chaos Computer Club Congress will once again be held in Berlin from December 27th through the 29th.
According to their website, "The congress is intended to promote the technical, social and political interchange of ideas among hackers, security professionals, artists, nerds and other lifeforms, watching how technology affects society."
The CCC promises to either have the main track be in English or in German with English translation. Papers are being actively solicited with a deadline of December 1. Full details can be found at http://ccc.de/updates/2002/cfp.
