Our major goal is to gather all the communities from the region and abroad so we can socialize, hack, play, learn, exchange knowledge and experience and of course to party together. :)

BalCCon aims to become the center of the hacker community in the region as well as to provide opportunity for all the people in this part of Europe to connect and to cooperate.

Program and speakers will be taken trough “call for papers” a few months before congress. We have planed some special guests whose reputation is well known in the community. All the application and lectures will be stored in the database with the possibility of grading.

Why will the congress be held in Novi Sad?

LUGoNS is one of the oldest hacker communities in Serbia. We are existing successfully for more then a decade and growing our knowledge and international experience.

The city of Novi Sad is suitable for hostig an international event of this kind, because of its great geographical location, infrastructure, tourism support and mandatory technical support.
