|Inaugurated||11 to 13 April 2007|
re:publica is a conference in Europe that deals with the Web 2.0, especially blogs, social media and information society. It annually takes place in Berlin. During three days talks and workshops about various topics are held, ranging from media and culture over politics and technology to entertainment. All talks and discussions are streamed directly to the internet.
The conference is organized by the operators of the German blogs Spreeblick and netzpolitik.org and is funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung. Re:publica stems from res publica which translates to "public matter".
The first re:publica with the slogan "Leben im Netz" - Life in the internet - took place from 11 to 13 April 2007 and attracted about 700 visitors. Over the years the event grew continually, with 5,000 international visitors and about 350 speakers in 2013. Each year, different main focusses were set, for example data protection in 2008 and intellectual property rights and political aspects of internet usage in 2009.
