3rd ACM Europe Digital Humanism Summer School

The Summer School will take place from September 2nd to 6th, at TU Wien, Austria.

Digital Humanism is an interdisciplinary field that examines the complex interplay between technology and humankind with the aim of creating a better society and improving our lives. It recognizes that an interdisciplinary approach is necessary, breaking down disciplinary silos and integrating humanities, social, technical, and engineering sciences. Building on the successes of our previous editions, 1st Digital Humanism Summer School in 2022 and 2nd ACM Digital Humanism Summer School in 2023, the Summer School will be held at TU Wien, which is deeply involved in the Digital Humanism Initiative and also hosts the UNESCO Chair on Digital Humanism.  

The aim of the summer school is to provide a platform to explore and discuss key issues related to Digital Humanism, such as participation and democracy, digital politics and sovereignty, the role of platforms in the economy, privacy, AI and ethics, and fair systems. Globally recognized and leading academics from computer science, social sciences, and humanities will present and discuss these topics. These topics will be introduced by internationally renowned experts, including Franco Accordino (European Commission), Anna Bon (VU Amsterdam), Robin Burke (University of Colorado Boulder), Milad Doueihi (Paris-Sorbonne University), Monika Lanzenberger (European Commission), Thomas Lohninger (epicenter.works), Stavros Makris (University of Glasgow), George Metakides (Digital Enlightenment Forum), Jürgen Pfeffer (TU München), Ute Schmid (University of Bamberg), Maria Soledad Pera (TU Delft), and Hannes Werthner (TU Wien).
