The International CopyCamp Conference 2016
Future of Copyright in Europe
Submissions are now closed. We will announce the open call results in early September.
We have a pleasure to invite you to the 5th International CopyCamp Conference which will take place on October 27-28, 2016 in Warsaw.
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 international speakers. Most of them are from the European Union, including the Visegrad Group, but there are also representatives of other European countries and of the USA.
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 interested 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.
