29 - 30 October 2019
Fifty years ago, four computers at the universities of Stanford, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and Utah in the USA were connected to form the ARPANET. This event marked the birth of the Internet, which has since spread rapidly across the globe. The anniversary year of the Internet is reason enough to engage in discussions with the pioneers of the Internet, successful digital entrepreneurs, representatives of the digital society, and scientists about how the Internet came about, what lessons can be learned for further developments and what values an "Internet society" should follow.
Speakers for the Conference:
We are looking forward to announcing the following selection of speakers:
• Warren East, CEO Rolls Royce PLC
• Dr. Jürgen Müller, CTO SAP SE
• Dr. Mathias Döpfner, CEO Axel Springer SE
• Prof. Dr. Christiane Woopen, Chairman of the European Ethics Council
Full agenda (German only)
The conference will be an opportunity to discuss the risks and new challenges that accompany the digital transformation and the values that an “Internet society” should seek to follow.
