Topics likes data science, artificial intelligence, and computing are very well represented in the research hub of Hamburg. The two-day Digital Total event on 9 and 10 October 2023 will show which exceptional research is already being done, and which areas may potentially provide even greater results.

The two day event is being run by the House of Computing and Data Science (HCDS) at Universität Hamburg, together with partners from the academic platforms PIER PLUS as well as the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg and held in the Audimax at Universität Hamburg. Over 400 participants, including teams of authors from almost every university and nonuniversity research institution in the metropolitan region will provide over 150 poster-based presentations.

Participants will be welcomed by the president of Universität Hamburg, Hauke Heekeren; Dr. Rolf Greve, the head of the Office of Science and Research (in the Ministry of Science, Research, Equalities and District, BWFGB); and Christian Pfromm, Chief Digital Officer from the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. The leading minds from a range of research institutions in Hamburg will then conduct a discussion on the opportunities and risks offered by digitalization with representatives from business and politics: Andreas Timm-Giel (Hamburg University of Technology, TUHH), Dr. Annette Hamann (ITEC e.V. and Beiersdorf), Blanche Schwappach-Pignataro (University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf), Cord Jakobeit (Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg), Philipp Moll (Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter), Wolfgang Schulz (Hans-Bredow-Institut You can find the complete program on the HCDS page, and the opportunity to register for free.
