ASSEMBLY Summer 2011

category: parties [glöplog]
20th time. Thu 4th - Sun 7th August 2011, Helsinki at the Hartwall Areena.

You are very welcome to join us for our 20th party since 1992. Great compos, big prizes, huge screen, thousands in audience, ... well you know what to expect =).

The hill next doors is likely to be teeming with the classic Boozembly stuff, but that's not disorganized by us =).

We are putting together a bit of special stuff to celebrate this landmark. More about that later.

Oh and we are looking for speakers for the seminars. If you are interested --> abyss at nospam assembly dot org

See you in August in Helsinki

Always amazing. But no remote 64k entries accepted, I guess?
added on the 2011-06-13 02:15:52 by imerso imerso
Remote entries are accepted in all compos provided that you have a representative at the party to hand-in the entry, talk with the jury if needed and pick up any possible prizes.

There are typically more than a few folks that are willing to help out. This thread is a good place to ask for a helper or join the ASM scene mailing list at http://justiina.assembly.org/mailman/listinfo/oldskool-list and post it there.

Cool! wow 20 years, feels like yesterday to me (watching "unreal" on a warm summer day).

If the first Assembly was held in 1992, the 20th years birthday will be next year isn't it?

Rez: in the old days assembly used to be on a different date, they probably skipped 1 year, or did 2 in the same year.

Just count with fingers from 1992 to 2011, it is the 20th ;)

ha yes, it's like that story about the real date of 21st century's beginning, on 2001 and not on 2000...

What noby said, so this will be the 20th time the party is held.

Xernobyl, no skips and no twice a year things. I'm not counting ASM Winter, which is purely gaming.

We are going to party like we are 20th (or something) with very special performances from Machinae Supremacy and Press Play on Tape - performing on the main stage for a few thousands folks.

A couple of cool sponsored cash and HW prizes for special entries in the compos:

Microsoft Pure Web & WinPhone7

Kajak 3D engine

4 weeks to go. Get your prods ready! =)

And yes, I suck with BB Code. It's year 2011 ffs, and we can do raymarching and what not, but we can't have a BBS that turns hyperlinks into hyperlinks without manual work? ;-)

msqrt: slowdown, but not a roadblock. I got away from the rookie forest camp back in 90s to go and organize asm.

Just come up with some good docs about digital culture, greater good etc =).

i'll try my best ;)

A question to ASM orgas: any chance of preliminary schedule? This is already needed for buying airtickets beforehand. At least rough info about compos and their deadlines would be much appreciated (e.g. both intro categories).
added on the 2011-07-14 15:13:44 by Digimind Digimind
The schedule from year 2010 is very much like this year's schedule. Compo deadlines are at the same places as most compos are about at the same time.


Machinae Supremacy plays on Thu evening and PPOT on Fri evening.

Pity this clashes with LCP, I would have loved to come. Greetings to Jope :)

Will the no 1 and 2 also be the same as last year in the pc demo compo? :D

Prolly if nobody else gets their LAZY ASSES OFF THE BENCH and start doing stuff.

I've been sitting on my lazy ass for last week, trying to avoid my dev env hard by playing nethack and what not. I'm starting to lose the fight against my IDE and I keep going to it more and more day by day.
