Last year, we successfully worked together with a programme committee for the first time. We’d like to repeat that for #rp17 and expand it further. We’re thrilled about the commitment of these experts, who will be offering up their time to support the program team in an advisory capacity!
We are so happy to announce the first sessions! By now several of 2017’s sessions and speakers from our Call for Participation are up on our website and many more will certainly be added within the next few weeks.
The second stage of the Call for Participation is up and running and our deadline ends January 8th, 2017! These entries will make up the largest portion of the program for the re:publica 2017.
re:publica 2017 speaker Caroline Sinders doesn’t limit herself to digital ethnography. She has, among other things, spent time interacting with IBM´s Watson. Her focus is on communication and how we can curb online harassment through the use of machine learning systems.
The United States in crisis? At the re:publica 2017, programmer and essayist Maciej Ceglowski will analyze the first six months of the president’s term of office to help explain how things can be expected to proceed in the USA after Donald Trump’s election victory.
The first stage of our Call for Participation ended on December 4th with soon 200 submissions. Now on to the next, ending January 8th, 2017!
Since #rp16 we've been dividing and arranging many of our core themes and topics into manageable tracks. Today, we want to introduce two new ones and help to inspire the Call for Participation: re:blog and science:fiction.
Together with our partner Science Year 2016*17, re:publica 2017 will host the new “sub:marine” track. The intersection of digital culture, technology and oceanic habitats is surprisingly large, so join our Call for Participation for “sub:marine”!
We are looking for a programme assistant to join our team, starting 1 December 2016 until 31 May 2017. In addition we are looking to fill internship positions starting from December 2016 and from January/February 2017. We'd love to hear from you soon!
re:publica TEN's mirror themed design was communicated in print, advertising, and trailers and permeated the event space with some imposing installations at STATION Berlin. #rpTEN's visual appearance has now gone on to win a German Design Award by the German Design Council. We are so very happy for our design team!
Here we go, again! Our Call for Participation for re:publica 2017 kicks off on 1 November 2016. We look forward to your ideas and active participation because that is what makes re:publica such a unique festival.
#rpDUB is up and we're moving straight along. Today, at 13:00, we're kicking off the ticket sale for re:publica 2017 and #MCB17. If you're quick about it, you can secure one of the sought-after Early Bird-Tickets!
