Call for Presentations für die CopyCamp Conference

Donnerstag, 21. Juli 2016

For the last 5 years, CopyCamp has been a place of a balanced and multi-sided debate about copyright. We have provided a forum for a remarkable number of representatives of cultural institutions and the media, creative sectors, academic, legal, political and non-governmental circles. From Warsaw, we are reaching out towards renowned speakers from the CEE region including the Visegrad Group countries, former USSR members, but also from the “old EU” and the US.

This year we aim at building upon this extraordinary background and facilitate a dialogue particularly focused on the Future of Copyright in Europe. We want to gather the widest possible group of people involved in the discussion about the impact of copyright on social life, education, economy and politics who wish to present their opinions to the international audience. As always, we will be pleased to host all interested parties in the neutral and friendly space, and encourage participants to share thoughts and exchange ideas.

CopyCamp Conference is part of the Future of the Copyright project conducted by the Modern Poland Foundation.

Strategic Partners of the conference are International Visegrad Fund, Google and ZIPSEE Cyfrowa Polska.
