Dear colleagues,

we are pleased to announce that the Digital Humanism Summer School 2022 
will take place from September 19th to 23rd, 2022 at TU Wien, Austria.

Digital Humanism (DigHum) is an interdisciplinary approach (integrating 
humanities, social, and technical sciences) that aims to describe, to 
analyse and, above all, to influence the complex interplay between IT and 
humanity - for a society that fully respects universal human rights. 
Pursuing these goals, we will deal at the summer school with topics such 
as AI, humans, and control; ethics and responsible design; fair systems; 
participation and democracy; platform power, regulation; work in a new 
world; or sovereignty and geopolitics.

The summer school targets PhD students from engineering, social science 
and humanities as well as interested persons from industry, institutions 
and civil society. Leading scientists from the different fields involved 
will introduce the topics. A typical course is broad enough to provide a 
general introduction to the chosen topic, whilst one can learn the most 
relevant contributions in depth. In addition, there is enough room for 
discussions and presentations of participants’ projects.

The summer school is organized by the Center for Artificial Intelligence 
and Machine Learning/CAIML (TU Wien) [1], the Digital Enlightenment Forum 
[2], and the Digital Humanism Initiative [3].

Please find further details about the program and the application process

We are looking forward to seeing you there!
