The International CopyCamp Conference is the first Central-and-Eastern European annual event to undertake a multi-sided, balanced and unrestrained discussion on the social and economic impacts of copyright. The third edition of the conference will be again an occasion to conduct a international debate characterized by high standards of communication and openness to the input from all interested parties – representatives of cultural institutions and the media, creative sectors, academic, legal, political and business circles, administration and non-governmental organisations – and the general public from all over the world with special attention to the perspective of the Visegrad Group countries.
We are glad to announce having two estimated keynote speakers: Cory Doctorow, a London-based journalist and science fiction author, winner of the Prometheus and Campbell Awards, co-editor of the blog Boing Boing, author of the rewarded novel Little Brother and Birgitta Jónsdóttir, an Icelandic poet and member of the Icelandic parliament, Internet activist, freedom of information and freedom of speech defender.
CopyCamp is part of the Future of Copyright project financed by Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe.
Strategic Partners of the conference: Association of Authors ZAiKS and Google.
Partner: Coalition for Open Education.
Thank you in advance for submitting your proposals!
