re:publica is one of the largest and most exciting conferences
about digital culture in the world. Since its foundation in 2007,
it has grown from a cozy blogger meeting with 700 participants into
a wide-ranging “society conference”, with 8.000 visitors at the
anniversary edition re:publica TEN. Representatives of digital
culture share their knowledge and decision-making tools, and
discuss the future of the information society. Here they can mingle
with activists, scientists, hackers, entrepreneurs, NGOs,
journalists, social media and marketing experts, and many others.
This fosters innovation and creates synergies between net politics,
online marketing, network technology, digital society, and (pop)
culture. What is more, around 46 percent of re:publica speakers are
female – far more than at many other similar events.
