DigiMeet 2023 | Diversity in digital transformation

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), again 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 and self-organised Open Spaces. A call for participation with further information will follow in June 2023. Additionally, we are happy to announce a keynote talk by Josephine Ballon, Head of Legal at HateAid, providing insights on their work against hate speech and discrimination on the internet. 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”
  • Prof. Dr. Frauke Mörike (TU Dortmund): “Actually relevant?! … Designing inclusive work systems”

The call for participation will be uploaded here in June.
