DEAF presents a wide range of program segments, including a professionals conference program consisting of seminars, workshops and keynotes, and a large thematic exhibition of works of art and installations. There will also be a performance program and artist talks.

The festival is characterized by a thematic approach. Its aim is to harbour new and speculative views about current developments and themes in our technological culture and society. The theme of this year's DEAF is: The Progress Trap.
