Local groups

For many people the local chapters of the GUUG and sage@guug are the first contact with our organization. They offer a chance to get to know one's peers in the area, to listen to talks, and to get involved.

All local groups are coordinated by Wolfgang Stief ( In cases of unclear issues or questions, please contact Kerstin. Also if you have some proposals to make or wish to note something. Clearly the facilitators of all local groups can also contact me with any questions. I will try to help out!

As a rule, events of local chapters are open for non-members, too.

Here is a list of the GUUG local chapters in Germany:

We encourage members and non-members to set up their own local groups. We have collected a number of helpful hints and resources to support local groups.

Many local chapters provide their own mailing list, you will find more info about this on the corresponding pages. For all non-local issues the list is provided.
