The beta-programme for re:publica’2010 is now online

Today we published a beta version event programme for the re:publica 2010. re:publica is a conference concerning blogs, social media and the digital society which will be taking place for the fourth time from 14 – 16 April and will be organised and hosted by newthinking communications and Spreeblick. While last year’s conference attracted 1600 guests we are expecting up 2500 participants in 2010. This year’s events will take place in the Friedrichstadtpalast, Kalkscheune and the Quatsch Comedy Club.

The theme of re:publica 2010 is: ‘nowHere’. By this we mean on the one hand real-time communications as well as the increasing international flavour of the re:publica 2010. This year we will be hosting many exciting projects and bloggers from different countries and cultures.

The current programme line-up is still in its beta version. Not all of our keynote speakers and guests have provided their abstracts yet and there may well be minor reorganisations of programme slots in the coming weeks. Currently, our programme consists of over 135 hours on eight stages spanning three days which is likely to increase further.
