Thanks for your submissions: Over 50 sessions have already been announced!

We’ve announced further sessions from the Call for Participation. Have a look, get inspired and come visit us in Ireland and Greece! 

Wow! We had over 90 submissions for #rpDUB and #rpTHE reach us over the course of our Call for Participation. 60 of those were for Dublin and 64 for Thessaloniki. We’d just like to say another big thank you for all of the exciting ideas. We’re still at it, diligently assessing the very last proposals and have already announced around 50 sessions – 30 for Dublin and 24 for Thessaloniki!

Curious about the entanglements generated from protest and identity in Europe, digital rights in Turkey or what cyborgs definitely aren’t dreaming about? Then click your way over to the confirmed sessions.

Head to Dublin on 7 and 8 September to discuss if digital news and media coops can succeed where other start-up models have failed, and think about what data-driven determinism and speculative futures can offer to political debate. Or why not find out what the future of Twitter looks like (#BuyTwitter)?

From 11 to 13 September, Thessaloniki will have a wide range on offer, including re:boat  – our sailing boat-based programme – the cooperation with Reworks Agora, as well as the chance to meet local start-ups, learn creative coding, discuss open data & smart cities or 'responsible Citizenship'.

We’ll also have a few talks taking place in both Ireland and Greece. Among them are the activists Tanya Lokot and Treasa O'Brien with their "Stories of Protest" talk and Austrians Walter Palmetshofer and Dani Platsch, who will be taking a closer look at the European tax system.

We have more surprises in store for you, including side events and the party programme. You can also start getting ready for the complete programme for #rpEUROPE, which goes online on 22 August.

Until then, stay tuned!
