Biel/Bienne Chaos Singularity (Cosin)

From Friday 10 June 2016 at 18h00 to Sunday 12 June 2016 at 16h00.

Villa Ritter, Juravorstadt 36, Biel/Bienne, Berne

Cosin is the annual meeting of hackers, hackerspaces and Chaos Computer Club members in Switzerland and nearby regions. It's also the location of the annual gathering of the Chaos Computer Club Switzerland (CCC-CH).

There are workshops, talks (about free software, society, privacy, hardware, security), fun (tesla coil, nitrogen glacé, well-chosen beer, sometimes even self-brewed "free beer"), barbecue, nice people, and also a rather non-standard, hackish location.

The event has been started many years ago by suisse-allemand hackerspaces/CCC-Erfakreisen and has now settled at Villa Ritter in Biel/Bienne, directly at the Röstigraben between Deutschschweiz and Romandie, and already had a noticable amount of visitors from the Romandie in the past years.

(Translators, e.g. for the website, and others who'd like to help to bring the different regions hackerspace-wise closer together, are very welcome!)
