About HCPP19 - Opt-out

World mandatory passportization celebrates its 100th anniversary.

A nasty dehumanization, carefully marking all people by their governments, stealing their biometrics, strengthening the power of territorial states and suppressing the liberty of individuals.

There remains however the possibility to choose a suitable permanent residency, to create international companies, to get a better passport and to use state cheats to hack the tyrant.

Use cryptographic technology to regain privacy, to save freedom, to step up from the first constrained realm and to build the second one.

Achieve new freedom using globality and flexibility.

Opt-out of the system!

Call for Participation

Would you like to become a speaker or suggest one? Great! This year we are reaching out to our global community and we are opening a Call for Participation. Please, submit your proposal(s) by August 15, 2019 using the following interface.

This year's main topic is opt-out. Global censorship of freedom of speech, massive financial surveillance or upcoming drastic Internet regulations and most importantly, desperation from the impossibility to change the political system falling to a wrong direction, lead to workarounds and solutions that technologies may offer to opt-out the existing system and build the parallel one. We appreciate addressing and promoting these technologies including all opt-out and liberation guides.

We are also open to other topics and program suggestions that will enrich your congress experience.

Organizer

Paralelní Polis is a one-­of-­a-­kind nonprofit organization that brings together art, social sciences, and modern technologies. The ideas of liberty, independence, and innovative thinking and development of society are the main underlying foundations the whole project is built upon.

The project intends to remain state free as it operates entirely without support from the government, and most of the funds come from voluntary contributions of our donors and partly from commercial activities such as running a unique co­working space and the world's first bitcoin-­only cafe.

It was founded by members of a contemporary-­art group Ztohoven, and Slovak and Czech hacker­spaces. Its main goal is to promote economic, social and digital freedom. We try to be a vocal voice of freedom in order to shape the public discourse, and ultimately work towards a freer future.
