The renowned event is back with the theme – OPT OUT – covering how to fix a broken
system, escape censorship and attain freedom with the help of technology.
The deadline for speaker applications for the 6th Hackers Congress Paralelni Polis (#hccp19)
is coming to a close on August 15, 2019. Event organisers are reaching out to the global
community with a final call for participation.
#hccp19 is a shockingly beautiful Prague-based event which this year explores the binding
constraints of global political and economic systems, with speakers offering insights into
technologies, such as digital currencies and blockchain, and alternative social and business
constructs that can help humanity opt-out, flourish and regain its senses.
Tomáš Kolman, HCPP lead coordinator, says: “Opting-out of any system starts with
understanding how things really work. Traditionally, our speakers have been cypherpunks,
digital privacy extremists, cryptocurrency experts and freedom fighters. This year we have
added economists, sociologists, geologists and artists to challenge the conventional mindset
about what freedom really is and how to achieve it.
The Hackers Congress Paralelni Polis is a well-loved, annual, European event that covers the
intersection of technology, art and freedom activism, and is held in its own stunning venue.
This year’s confirmed speakers include: esteemed Bitcoin develop Peter Todd; CEO of
Elixxir and cryptography pioneer David Chaum; and cryptoanarchists and cypherpunks –
Smuggler and Frank Braun.
Tickets for the congress have always been sold out early, and this year is no exception, with
only a few remaining. As has been traditional, the very last remaining ticket will be sold for
