Call for papers
deadline: 31 january 2015


re:publica is Europe’s largest and most prominent conference on the
future of our society and all things digital. re:publica attracts over
6,000 participants but has preserved an open and familiar atmosphere.
re:publica is the quality conference with a festival feel. In 2015
re:publica will take place in Berlin, Germany, from May 5th to May 7th.
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 communities,
leading thinkers of our time with activists and engaged organizations to share

With this year’s 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 non-European perspectives on these topics as well as
other core re:publica topics like the digitization of politics and
media, future of news and broadcasting, etc.


This year’s call for papers is open until January 31st. We are looking
for creative, high-level talks, engaging discussions and hands-on
workshops for our 2015 program. If you wish to contribute and be part of
re:publica then please take part in our call:

Participating in the call does not require submitting a scientific
proposal. You can participate by filling out our online template which
asks for your topic, a brief description of the content, format
(lecture, discussion, workshop or action) as well as some information
about you (name and previous experience).


re:publica addresses the question how digitization and new media impact 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. 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

We are looking forward to receiving your ideas. Should you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
