We republish the announcement:
re:publica is Europe’s largest and most prominent conference on the future of society and all things digital. The annual event attracts over 7,000 participants but has preserved an open and familiar atmosphere, a high-level conference with a festival feel. In 2016, re:publica will take place in Berlin, Germany, from May 2th to May 4th. Unlike other conferences which focus on social media marketing and the usual “show and tell” of tools and projects, re:publica aims to bring together the leading thinkers of our time with activists and a range of communities to share experiences.

This year’s motto is TEN as we celebrate 10 years of re:publica: https://re-publica.de/en/motto. re:publica TEN will address the cultural, economic and political digital development of the past ten years, examine our current state of living and look ahead at what the future will bring each and every one of us. We look forward to receiving submissions matching this celebratory motto, but not only.
re:publica focuses on the impact of digitization and new media on society. Main topics include the role of new media for political communication and protest, changing media landscapes and trends in journalism, DIY-cultures and net political topics such as privacy, open data, open licensing, and Internet infrastructure and security.
