Take The Stage – Become Part Of #rp15!

Since its founding, the idea of sharing and exchanging knowledge has always been an important part of re:publica. All participants are part of a larger whole. As active participants, as helpers and volunteers, but of course also as speakers! More than half of the 300-hour programme of the re:publica comes from your submissions to our Call For Papers. And thanks to your inspiring, unusual and innovative proposals, re:publica has become what it is today – the most exciting digital conference in Europe.

With its motto Finding Europe, the coming re:publica has a special focus on the digital society of our home continent with its great cultural, economic and political richness and diversity. We are particularly happy to receive submissions matching the wide range of European topics and ideas, as well as many international applications. And of course, we are also interested in everything else that sounds surprising, enlightening or entertaining from areas like politics and society, science and technology, culture and entertainment, business and innovation, education, health, or witchcraft…

For an impression of the range of re:publica talks and topics, see last year’s programme or the documentation of past talks on our YouTube channel.
