• Blockchain is a comparatively young technology, a “new kid on the block”: Since 2009, the development of Blockchain-related applications (“Smart Contracts”) have made decentralised transactions possible through the use of cryptographic functions such as Trusted Computing. Say what?

  • For the fifth time, MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin (MCB), presented by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg (MBB) and

  • World-class learning for the 21st century

    There are 5 billion for the digitisation of schools - and something is happening in other areas of education as well! How can we use money and digitisation not only to do more with the old, but also to break new ground in learning? That is the theme of the re:learn stage at #rp19.

  • Smart cities promise great things through urban digitisation: real-time responses to logistical challenges that stem from ever-expanding urban areas; benefits for the education and health system; boosts in political participation; advances for the sharing economy.

  • As creators of future digital society, kids are more than welcome at re:publica! Here’s to another year of crafting, playing, coding, and puzzling.

  • “The working worlds of the future” is the topic for the Science Year 2018. Before the session of Ranga Yogeshwar the German minister for education and research will open the topic "We can Work it Out".

  • They say the future is not what it used to be.

  • POP is our uber-motto this year. Our new website design in green-screen-green already alludes to the direction we’re headed – even despite the inherent blank space: Squeaky clean, Seventeen cut-out popstar culture might come to mind. But, with its screeching guitars on plateau boots, POP was never really as harmless as it sometimes appeared.

  • We live in a connected world in which digital technologies accelerate our communication, make information more accessible and production processes more transparent. At least this is what we hope for.

  • Diversity and inclusion are fundamental elements of our value set. We’ve already achieved a lot, but there’s still so much more to do. We asked female techmakers, digital pioneers and coders out there: Is it time for us to enlarge the “Fe:male Digital Footprint”? What projects are currently in the works?

  • Music and the digital sphere are closely interconnected. But our #rp18 Music topic isn’t just about a national and international exchange, the promotion of new formats or the continued development of the scene at the intersection of sound and technology.

  • The internet began with the decentralisation of communication – we gained more power over the kind of information we had at our disposal and wanted to consume. Are we currently experiencing a new freedom through decentralised financial flows?

  • Health in times of interconnectedness in a fascinatingly wide spectrum: “re:health” deals with the various aspects of how digitisation leaves its marks on the realms of (quantified) health and health services, and the opportunities and risks that these developments have for people and their bodies.

  • On day two of re:publica, stage 9 will dedicate itself to virtual worlds. The concept of complete immersion into artificial worlds is not a new one. Texts, films, video games, and performance pieces all aim to engulf their audience. VR, on the other hand, is still struggling to mature.

  • Publishing on the web can unfortunately mean stumbling onto thin ice, legally speaking. Copyright law, cease and desist, surreptitious advertising – those are just some of the keywords and stumbling blocks.
