In times of digital change, the metropolitan region has become the most important location of digital publishing companies in Germany. New media, new devices and new formats are breaking up a market that has been long untouched. Nowadays, the publishing industry is facing it’s the major challenge. After having targeted the reader, big mail order companies are on to the authors now. Is there a battle of online against offline or is cooperation possible?

14.00 – 15.30


Keynote: Ben Scott, director of the European Digital Agenda program at the Stiftung Neue Verantwortung, Berlin

The first session focuses on problem analysis: What are the advantages and opportunities, but also the risks and side effects of big data? What effects do surveillance measures have on civil rights and liberties, prosperity and innovation in the networked knowledge societies? What role do the major Internet companies play, what responsibility do they have? Are large-scale surveillance and control of the Net imminent or is ‘another’ Internet conceivable?

15.30 – 16.00 BREAK
16.00 – 17.30


KEYNOTE: Giovanni Buttarelli, Assistant Supervisor, European Data Protection, Brussels

The second session is devoted to problem solving: Is it possible to achieve a balance between security, data protection and press freedom in a digital world? How can the constitutional state confront the practices of surveillance and the pace of algorithm-driven acceleration? What measures should editorial teams and companies take to protect their employees? How can the major Internet companies win back declining confidence?

17.30 – 19.00 Break optional: tour (English) through the park of Sanssouci
