What we'd like to see
As always, a major focus of our conference is on digital policy. re:publica also reflects the many other aspects of our digital society, from pop and hacker culture, to inclusion, the maker movement, to social media marketing. All interesting or innovative digital topics are welcome. The Science Year 2016*17 will also have a special place in our programme. We'll be examining its focus on “Seas and Oceans” from our unique re:publica perspective and 2017 will also mark the fourth consecutive year of MEDIA CONVENTION being part of re:publica.
