The bidt, CAIS and Weizenbaum-Institute invite doctoral researchers to present their work at the newly established joint Digitalisation Research and Network Meeting – DigiMeet.
The Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (bidt), the Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS) and the Weizenbaum Institute (WI), in cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Media Research – Hans Bredow Institute, co-organise DigiMeet, a forum for early career researchers with a focus on digitalisation-related topics. This year it will take place (virtually) on 28 November 2023, 9:30 am – 5:30 pm CET. Its special topic for 2023 is “Diversity in digital transformation”.
Doctoral and postdoctoral researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in thematic sessions such as:
- Special Session: Diversity in digital transformation (Chair: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Pfeffer, TUM/bidt)
- Digital technologies, education and life-long learning (Chair: Prof. Dr. Nikol Rummel, CAIS)
- Governance of innovation in digital democracies (Chair: Prof. Dr. Matthias C. Kettemann, HBI)
- AI, work and tools: (Chair: Prof. Dr. Martin Krzywdzinski, WI)
or in self-organised Open Spaces (for submission details, see the PDF below).
Additionally, we are happy to announce a keynote talk by Josephine Ballon, Head of Legal at HateAid on „HateAid − Legitimately against hate on the internet. About an NGO’s fight for human rights in the digital space“. HateAid is a non-profit organisation that promotes human rights in digital space and stands up against digital violence and its consequences at both social and political levels.
Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in one of the following two afternoon workshops before socialising in a virtual space:
- Dr. Josephine B. Schmitt (CAIS): “Resilience for Researchers – Dealing with hate speech and right-wing agitation in the academic context”

DigiMeet closes with a virtual roundtable discussion on “Intersectional perspectives on Digitalisation and AI”, chaired by Katharina Mosene (HBI).
