We are happy to announce the LessWrong Community Weekend 2016! From September 2 to September 4 awesome people from all across Europe are coming to Berlin to meet, exchange ideas, and start projects together.
The event will happen at Jugendherberge Wannsee which features several seminar rooms for talks, workshops, and discussions, as well as comfortable open spaces to socialize and relax. It also provides on-site accommodation (shared rooms, 4 beds) for everyone.
Costs are €150. This includes accommodation for two nights, meals and snacks, and a welcome lunch on Friday.
Like the last two years the event will have some long-form talks, workshops and group activities. However, the weekend is largely participant-driven: There’ll be lots of free space for offering talks and activities of your own. (examples from last year: lightning talks, workouts before meals, improv singing, acrobatics, swimming in the lake, stargazing, …) Providing a space that’s suitable for forming bonds between people and reconnecting with friends is a major focus.
You don’t need to be able to speak German to attend. Nearly all talks and discussions will be in English.
Last time a number of people stayed a couple of days longer to explore Berlin, go bouldering etc. That was super fun and we invite you to plan for it. We will coordinate couch-surfing opportunities to avoid the need for boring hotels.
To sign up, fill out this form.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing you there,
Nino, Christian, Marcel, Daniel, J*, Alexander, Irina
