This year, the event is addressed to representatives of the education sector, non-governmental organisations, public administration workers, internet industry representatives and experts working with children.  

During this year's edition, the conference will adopt a hybrid format. Plenary sessions will take place on 27 and 28 September in Warsaw. It will also be possible to attend the event in person at the conference venue, but all sessions will also be broadcasted online. The first day of the meeting will start with an official opening and will end with the screening of the documentary film "Screened Out". Additionally, the conference will include online workshop sessions organised on 29 and 30 September, for which a separate registration is required. 

The presentations during the first two days of the event will be available in Polish, English and Ukrainian, while selected workshop sessions will be held in English only.  

Participation in the conference is free of charge. Those interested in attending the parallel sessions on 27-28 September (on-site in Warsaw or online) are invited to complete the online registration form. The list of online workshops is available in English and the registration form will be available soon on the event’s website.

The organiser of the conference is the Polish Safer Internet Centre , which includes NASK National Research Institute and the Empowering Children Foundation. However, the event is organised within the European Commission programme Digital Europe. The International Conference “Keeping children and young people safe online” is organised by the Orange Foundation and the International Telecommunication Union, Google and Librus.
