EuroDIG 2023 draft programme is here!

After the Public Planning Meeting earlier this month, the inputs and ideas from the community were put into a draft programme for the upcoming EuroDIG (June 19-21 in Tampere, Finland), which you can find on the EuroDIGWiki.

The main programme is structured across three topics:

  • Impact of the war

  • Internet fragmentation

  • Digital platforms

Our basis for the sessions were proposals that were submitted in the open Call for Issues.

We now welcome feedback and comments on the draft programme until February 26! Please send us your ideas through this online form.
