Hosting city for ALE2017

If you are excited to volunteer as a local co-organizer, please step forward and propose your city. The idea of ALE unconferences is to have organizers, volunteering to work for making the event happen, spread across many countries. Generally no need for co-location, as we are used to collaborate virtually. No hierarchy, only sofas and motivated volunteers. Anyway, for hosting ALE in a specific city, we should have local organizers, who can take care for local stuff (venue selection, steering the regional communities etc)

Hosting City: Zürich

Zürich is expensive, I know. Besides that, it’s also a very livable and vibrant place, with a lake and a river you could almost drink from. We’re a group of five Zürich-based ALE participants and a couple more who would be determined to make ALE happen in Zürich. This includes finding ways to keep the event affordable to all. ALE 2016 was a blast. Thanks to those who made it happen! And it was clearly in the western ...more »

Mannheim

The people from Wikispeed have a car in Mannheim this year.

We would love to have them as a family activity.

If we want to avoid shipping costs, we should choose for Mannheim
