New date

May 08 – 10, 2014

New venue

Station Berlin, Berlin, Germany

Not Messe Berlin anymore! New location is near Gleisdreieck and Deutsches Technik Museum.

New partner

partnering with droidcon

New schedule

  • 3 days: Thursday to Saturday
  • Evening talks on Thursday and Friday until 10pm
  • Exhibition open 9am to 6pm
  • Daytime talks as always from 10am to 6pm

What does this mean for the free projects?

  • Berlin Web Week takes place at the venue from May 05 until May 10, 2014. This means that several conferences run during that week in the different halls of the Station. re:publica takes place in the hall next to LinuxTag until Thursday. The Media Convention Berlin takes place until May 07 in the halls that LinuxTag uses, so setup for our exhibition booths can only start once the exhibition for this event has been torn down, which means that setup is on Wednesday evening not before 7pm!
  • partnering with droidcon means that we share the same exhibition and lecture halls. We will have 7 lecture halls, so during the day LinuxTag can run 3 tracks in parallel and use one more hall for half of the day. Thus we are introducing the evening sessions this year, so that we can run tracks in all 7 lecture halls in the evenings until 10pm on Thursday and Friday.
  • partnering with droidcon means that we will have the same ticket options. Tickets for the day sessions include food from a professional caterer, thus they are more expensive than in the previous years. This also means that each exhibiting project will only receive 2 exhibitor passes. Additional "food-only tickets" may be bought for project members. To be decided: evening sessions will either be free for all or accessible for a very small fee. There will be no eTickets this year, but we will have a scholarship program where people can apply for a free ticket for the whole event. More details on this will follow as we get closer to the event.
