VIScon 2018

From October 5th to October 7th 2018, the first ever VIScon will take place! The VIS will be taking over the CAB for three days to organize a hackathon from Friday through Sunday with a symposium on Saturday. More information can be found here.
Of course for an event of this scale, we rely on the support of many helpers. If you want to help make this event awesome, you find available shifts down below.

IMPORTANT: It's possible to register for overlapping shifts, as long as the overlap is max. 15 minutes (e.g. one can register for two consecutive shifts of the same type).

To show our gratitude, helpers receive the following rewards:
- All helpers: helper shirt, food and drinks during the shift
- 2+ shifts: Symposium admission, Helper Goodie Bag
- 3+ shifts: Invitation to the VIScon helper's dinner
- 4+ shifts: 50 CHF Digitec/Galaxus voucher
Night shifts (22-8) count as 2 shifts.

Everyone who registers for 2+ shifts, does NOT have to register for the symposium on the VIS website. If you want to attend a workshop, write an email with the workshop you want to attend to the adress below as from 26.9, 10 a.m. Please make sure that the workshop doesn't overlap with your shift though ;) The same rules apply as for the regular registration: Premature mails won't be considered, first-come-first-serve and there might be a waiting list, therefore your registration is only definitive, once you've received the corresponding confirmation email.

More Infos, like the meeting point, you'll find here

Please enter a valid mail address, we need to be able to reach you with more information about your shift before the event.



What would a VIS event be without amazing food? Do you want to help make people happy?

We take over the CAB! To feel at home, it of course has to look cool. Prepare the VIScon and carry things around.

All good things must come to an end. And then we have to clean up. Carry things back where they used to be.

The Symposium should be a place where people feel comfortable. Take care of them from the Welcome Desk to the farewell.

Tent Setup and Teardown

There will be a big tent in front of the CAB during the weekend. Some muscles are beneficial for these shifts :)
