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.

A week before the event participants will receive up to date 
information-analytical materials in English and in some cases in local 
languages (German, Bulgarian,....) .

Your own presentation is not necessary - however, participation in 
discussion is expected (Considering small format and aim of the symposia).

Should you prefer to present your own or others ideas on the topic, or 
to share critical comments on presented materials, please send us such 
materials a week, atthe latest, before theparticular event. at latest.

The first symposium will be held on *February 20/21, 2019 in Bratislava,

recommendations. *

ideas that were raised in discussion or submitted separately.
