Here is great news for you, we have extended the application deadline for the POINT 10 Conference. You have a few more days to apply and secure your place at the event. We are waiting for your applications!
The POINT Conference marks the 10th year! Let’s round our first decade together!
Is it worth coming? Definitely!
POINT Conference is a platform where technology connects with politics, civil society, media and academia. It is the largest conference of this type in the South-East Europe (SEE) region.
Since POINT has been going on for exactly a decade now, we have decided to use this year’s conference edition to focus on topics accordingly. Therefore, apart from the take on the actual events and developments, each conference session would offer a retrospective of the past decade and discuss how the situation regarding each topic has changed, thus offering a comparison between the situation ten years ago and now.
Having said that, this year’s topics would potentially include the rise of fact-checking and the fact-checking movement, increase in susceptibility to conspiracy theories, improvement of media integrity, the evolution of the digital rights, impact of the digital environment and disinformation on the business sector, migrations and brain drain, the developments in the Arab world after the Arab Spring, government openness and accountability, as well as the most current issue – Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and media reporting on the topic.
This year, the conference will be held on June 2nd and 3rd, at Sarajevo’s Dom mladih.
If you are an activist and you want to share your research or work that is related to the use of new technologies in fields of government accountability monitoring and/or open data, or if you want to learn about technology, social good, political processes, human rights, technology tools for transparency and accountability, social media and similar — we would love to have you as a part of the POINT 10 Conference.
