We are preparing small regionalsymposia for stakeholders. There we would like to present anEU-wide context of the possible applicationsof various suggested regulatory proposals, as well as other recent and relevant regulatory findings, proposals, and trends, both from theoretical and practical standpoints.

The first international symposium will be geographically focused toward Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland. However, the topics of Symposium are multiregional.

In the follow up period, there will be symposia held in Munich, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Dublin, Sofia and Riga. Each symposium will have its own key focus. For example, some symposia will be discussing the role of judiciary and legal systems within social media regulation. Other symposia will pay more attention to the assessment of new regulatory measures at national and EU levels. There will be symposia that will discuss in depth the regulation of social media from the point of view of users and providers, or from the point of view of regulators.

We would appreciate if you could let us know your possible interest in any of these symposia.
