Only University students are eligible for these tickets. It is important that you are able to provide corresponding documentation of eligibility on location. Show your valid student ID at the entrance of the conference.  


The 20% discount is valid for groups of 5 and more attendees.


You can sell your ticket or give it to someone else any time. But if you want to change the name of the ticket owner and make sure he or she gets a printed name badge with their own name, please send an email to event@newthinking.de. It must include the ticket number and the name and email address of the new owner.

Changing ticket owner names is only possible until May 15, 2015. Afterwards, we won’t be able to change the original name on the ticket and nametag to that of the new attendee’s. However, you can still sell or give your ticket to someone else. Please also note that it is up to you and the new recipient to work out your own payment method.
A ticket is only valid for one person and can't be shared. You'll get a wristband in exchange of your ticket which you need to keep on your wrist for the whole event.

Yes, to guarantee you a place at the barcamp please register for "Sunday Barcamp and Meetups only"

In 2015 we'll offer a special ticket category for children, to give parents the opportunity to attend Berlin Buzzwords. We will also provide conference child care so every attendee can take a deep-dive into their favorite topics. The conference child care is included in your child's ticket but needs to be reserved in advance because of limited availability.


You can resell your ticket and there are usually plenty of thankful takers to be found. You can also carry out a cancellation (But: the cancellation fees have to be paid by the attendees themselves).


Last year we received more than 130 submissions and unfortunately had to reject quite a few (We also accepted many so don’t let that scare you off!). If your submission won't be accepted we will send you a 20% discount code for your ticket.


Call for Submissions

Take part in our Call for Submissions! To submit your session idea, please register at our website and submit a new session form for each idea. A detailed description can be found below.
The more precise and complete the information you submit, the easier for us to select your session.

No, you only need to update your account. Log in with your details. On the main page you see the note “Berlin Buzzwords 2015: subscribe to event.” Click on it and join the group.

We need information concerning your session idea including the topic, a brief description of the content, format (long or short talk), experience level, as well as some information about you.

Selection criteria include: the quality and completeness of your proposal and how well your proposed session fits in to the program. Talks and workshops should concentrate on the implementation of systems, technical topics, real world applications and case studies. You can find more hints and information here.

The Call for Submissions ends on February 1, 2014. Proposals submitted after this date or which reach us through other channels cannot be accepted.

We will let you know at the beginning of March.

On the day your session will take place. We do not need your finished presentation but your short session description will be published online. We’d suggest making the short description informative and well formulated when submitting, in order to get readers interested in your session. Also, make it short but sweet (hardly anyone reads more than half a page, so your session's description is limited to 2.000 caracters).

You can resell your ticket and there are usually plenty of thankful takers to be found. You can also carry out a cancellation (But: the cancellation fees have to be paid by the attendees themselves).

No, unfortunately not.

As a speaker you will get free accomodation during the conference for two nights (May 31 - June 2). If your company is looking after your travel costs you're welcome to send us the corporate logo for our website and become a Travel-Partner.

Of course, you can. We do not, however, accept product presentations or company marketing presentations. If your company is interested in collaboration or sponsoring with Berlin Buzzwords, please contact us.

You are at least 18 years old and would be happy to support us in hosting this year's Berlin Buzzwords? The registration opens on April 20, 2015.

1. Open the volunteer registration

2. Now you can start completing your volunteer profile: Please fill out all mandatory fields

3. Choose a user name. The chosen name is visible for all registered volunteers!

4. Indicate an active mail address.

5. After you have submitted your information, you will receive a mail with an activation link (check your spam folder as well). Follow the link and choose a password.

6. Important: You still have to register for Berlin Buzzwords. Under “my events” → “Berlin Buzzwords 2015 dashboard” you can find:

- “Shift schedule”: Register for a shift at Berlin Buzzwords.

- “ My registrations”: View your registration.

- “Workspaces”: Get information regarding the different areas of activity.

After you've logged in, you can find the Berlin Buzzwords 2015 Dashboard (Menu→ “My events”→ “Berlin Buzzwords 2015 Dashboard”). Under the menu point “Shift schedule” you can find an overview of all possible shifts at the conference. Please think about beforehand which time and shift suits you best. Furthermore, have a look at the area of activity of your shift. You have chosen an area of activity and a suitable time period? Perfect! We have made different categories based on these two criteria, just choose one and you are good to go!

We have received your data and know your desired shift and area of activity. Mid May we will get back to you with more detailed information about Berlin Buzzwords and your specific area of responsibility.

The waiting list gives a chance to every interested volunteer who has registered too late. Of course, it can happen that registered volunteers cancel their participation so that the positions have to be filled. In the best case, waiting list candidates are spontaneous and flexible! The registration is the same, you only apply for the shift “waiting list”!

Usually you will work in the area of activity you've chosen in the registration process. If plans have to be changed you would always be asked for your agreement.

You will get a ticket for the whole duration of the conference (including food & drinks) and a Berlin Buzzwords 2015 shirt – and of course our eternal gratitude!

After your registration, you have the chance to switch shifts if other shifts are still available. Please delete your previous shift before registering for a new one.

Of course, something unexpected can happen in the meantime. Please get in touch with us as soon as possible so that we can redistribute your shift.

As a volunteer you will support us for 8 hours either for one shift of 8 hours or 2 shifts of 4 hours each. Some shifts which end late are shortened to 6 respectively 7 hours per shift.

Food and drinks are included in the free ticket you will get.

There will be an infocounter as a central gathering point. In addition to it, you will get more concrete information regarding the procedure of your shift in mid May.

As a volunteer, you are not insured with Berlin Buzzwords but with your personal health insurance. In case of any property damages during construction or dismantling, the liability insurance of Berlin Buzzwords comes into effect.
