Conference/Workshop objectives:

The aim of the symposium is to bring together different disciplinary perspectives (e.g., from communication and social science, legal studies, computer science, economics science and engineering science) on the transformation of the working world and of innovation models in the digital society and to identify and discuss the key challenges for the creation of a self-determined, creative and innovative society.

The Weizenbaum Institute is an academic partner of Tagesspiegel's Digital Future Science Match, which will take place on Monday, May 14, 2018 at KOSMOS Berlin. The Digital Future Science Match 2018 is an international digital conference which brings together up to 50 leading academics who will be presenting the latest research findings and their visions for a digital future.
