What session formats can be submitted at re:publica?

We feature a broad programme, so along with old and proven formats we like to try and test out new forms of communication. You can submit a talk, a discussion, or workshop, as well as a meetup, and other “action”. For example:

  • Talks and Discussions are based on the content prepared by the individual speaker. Make sure to plan in some time for follow-up Q&As from the audience.

 

  • Workshops strive for exchanges between and cooperative work between host and participants. Thus, they should feature a clear learning goal. Please consider carefully who and how many you want to reach. Maybe you want to give several of the same workshop with changing levels of difficulty?

 

  • During a Meetup you join up with like-minded people at a predetermined spot within the re:publica grounds. You come together with others to discuss and exchange a specific topic and grow your network of contacts.

 

  • “Action”, for us, is anything that doesn't require a stage or a set time frame whilst making re:publica fun and exciting: from hands-on activities, installations, exhibits, surveys to DJ sets and flash mobs!
