Vintage Computing Festival Berlin (VCFB) – Call for participation

6th to 8th October 2017, German Museum of Technology, Berlin, Germany

The Vintage Computing Festival Berlin (VCFB) is an event about historical computers and computing technology. The vintage computing hobby is being presented with exhibitions, lectures, and workshops. Our goal is to contribute to the preservation of historical computers and other data processing devices, and to foster interest in "superfluous" hard- and software. Our focus does not only include historical computers, but also historical operating systems, software, programming languages, network technology and other devices that compute, like calculators and calculating machines.

The VCFB is located in the historic Ladestraße area of the German Museum of Technology Berlin (accessible from Möckernstr. 26). Buildup begins on Friday, October 6th, and the event is open for visitors on Saturday and Sunday, 7th and 8th of October. Entry is free. Visitors of the VCFB will most likely also get free entry to the Network exhibition of the Museum of Technology located in the same building. This year we welcome the association for the preservation of classic computers (de) to host their annual Classic Computing (de) meeting at the VCFB.
