Hello dear entity,

under the title FireShonks23 and the motto "Try This at Home", the r3s (Remote Rhein Ruhr Stage, and the Haecksen ( are hosting remote talks and interactive online workshops that will take place live on the internet between 27th and 30th Dec. 2023.
So Fireshonks is a hybrid-event where viewers and participants can enjoy your content from home. Check out the CfP for 37c3 if you prefer to hold your talk at an on-site event.

Wether it's a short talk or more in-depth, we will find a way to make it happen. Following the talk, there will be a live Q&A session where viewers/listeners can ask you questions. The Q&A will be accompanied by heralds. Your talk will be streamed live on the internet on, YouTube and Twitch, afterwards we will publish your talk on and YouTube.

You can hold your talk comfortably and easily accessible from home or live on stage at the WIR-Haus (in Wülfrath, Germany). All you need to stream from home is a laptop, a camera and a headset. At the WIR-Haus we have a full stage set up, you only need to bring your slides on your laptop. On site, we expect you to wear a mask and take a covid rapid test.

Workshops will be held remotely in video conference rooms and will not be recorded nor released afterwards. Exchange between participants is strongly encouraged, so we welcome your submission of an interactive workshop.
