Airport bus shuttle & Hotel reservation

The Airport bus shuttle registration is about to close. In case you are arriving at Frankfurt-Main (FRA) or Hahn (HHN) airport and haven't registered for the shuttle busses, please do so right now. Registration will close on Monday 15:00.
All the hotel rooms are allocated now, and the hotel registration has been closed (you can probably still get rooms at NH Hotel Bingen if you want; check the hotels page for details).
We will also close the Social Ticket registration on Tuesday, March 18th, at 18:00 MET. If you're late but still want to apply for a social ticket, please do so now.

Compo updates

Update to the compo rules: we've decided to cancel the theme graphics competition because of a notable decline in both quantity and quality of entries over the last few years - it just seems like there's no significant interest.
However, we did receive email from several people interested in participating in the executable 4k graphics competition, so we'll now officially have one! Don't make us regret this :)

Hotel reservation system & ticket price

We've just launched the Breakpoint 2008 hotel reservation system offering big discounts to sceners over regular hotel prices.
We've also just published ticket price information. Thanks to our sponsors, we managed to lower the entrance fees compared to previous years. Regular entrance fee this year is now 55 Euros. For those who can't afford the ticket price (sceners coming from low-income countries and the like), there will be social tickets again, priced at 25 Euros (the missing 30 Euros are paid for by other sceners, pre-registration required).
