Step-by-step: How does registration work?

  1. Go to the registration page. If you were a participant at re:publica Berlin in 2014, 2015 or 2016, you just need to update your profile.

  2. You can already start to fill out and complete your speaker profile or finish this at a later time. You'll need to already provide a picture in the required dimensions. Please note, your speaker profile must be fully completed for your session to be accepted.

  3. Choose your username. It will be visible to all website users. We recommend using a FirstnameLastname scheme.

  4. Enter a valid e-mail address.

  5. After completing registration you will be forwarded to the home page again and receive an activation link via your submitted e-mail address. Please note that this might take up to 15 minutes depending on your e-mail provider – and please also check your spam folder... Click the link and set a password.

  6. When you're logged in you will find a menu bar (black and grey bar on the top of the page) and your user dashboard:

    • User account: Here you'll find your dashboard with latest news, profile information, your submitted sessions.

    • To edit your profile click "edit" below the menu bar and find your user account were you can change your e-mail address and password, as well as your "Speaker profile" where you can edit & complete your speaker profile.

    • My events: Here you can switch between the events of the last years if you where already registered back then.

    • To submit a session go to "User account" (your dashboard) where you find the field "Create Session" and can click on "Add content > Session" to create a session proposal

    • My content: here you'll find your submitted proposal and may edit them as necessary.

  7. Now: Click "Add content > session" and simply fill out all fields related to your session proposal.

  8. Feel free to save and continue at a later date – but remember: your session proposal needs to be completed so we can review it.

  9. Add speakers to your sessions. If you are planning several speakers into your session, all of them need to register and create a profile. Once you know their username, please add the usernames to the "speakers" field in the form. Make sure to wait for the autocomplete that verifies the speaker name with our database. You can add the further speakers once we accepted you proposal.

  10. Once you saved your session and can access it from your dashboard, also the curation team can see it. That means it's submitted and you don't need to do anything else. 

  11. Celebrate, your session is fully filled out and submitted on time! Or go back to Step 7 and submit more session proposals.
