The invention of the WWW has shown us how consumers become broadcasters, how knowledge can be crowd-sourced and how the web can offer immense possibilities for social participation. Since its inception, re:publica has followed the idea of giving and taking: all participants should be part of the final conference. As interlocutor, engaged helper and, of course, as speaker!
Over 50% of our final event programme is curated through our yearly Call for Papers submissions. Over the years we have been able to put together programmes which are hands-down the most colourful, inspirational and controversial – and thus have made re:publica into one of the most exciting and astonishing conferences in Europe.
Under the motto “INTO THE WILD”, re:publica 2014 is looking to reassess the web in the post-Snowden era, dare to explore new avenues and encourage the unpredictability of action. One thing is sure: the digital society will be transformed. We hope, together with your contributions, to cast a glance into the future from May 6 - 8, 2014.
All you have to do is apply to the Call for Papers.
