Transdisciplinary AI Research Convention to be held April 2021

On 27 April 2021, AI researchers will gather at KI-Camp 2021, the second transdisciplinary AI research convention for young scientists. The event is hosted by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Informatics Society (GI), and is aimed that young scientists who do not necessarily sit next to each other in the lecture hall, but who have a common research and working area: Artificial Intelligence.

Once again, the seven themes Society, Sustainability, Health and Life Sciences, Smart Spaces and Mobility, Production, Arts and Media and Science will feature exciting topics in interactive formats. Amongst other things, they will deal with AI and life after death – to what extent does AI change our understanding of what is to come? There will also be discussions about emotions in artificial systems and about what the young AI research community needs to do top-level research in Germany.

In addition, GI will also choose KI-Newcomers: 10 young outstanding AI researchers of all disciplines under 35 years of age who are affiliated with German institutions. They will be honored at the KI-Camp 2021.

Applications for participation in the KI-Camp 2021 are now open until 6 December 2020. Until 13 December 2020, outstanding AI researchers of all disciplines under 35 years of age, who are affiliated in German institutions, can be nominated as AI newcomers by themselves or by others. The application and nomination as well as further information can be found at

The convention will be held partly in English and partly in German.
