Past events

Although not always visible, many different talents are present and needed within this industry. With the new “diversIT: Women in IT” series of events, the Cluster IT aims to shed light on, connect and empower those who might not have enough platforms yet.

After our kick-off in March, we now present the second edition. No matter if you are a CIO (m/f/d) or just about to start your career in IT, it promises to be an inspiring and refreshing morning. Feel invited and save the date:

Wednesday, November 8th, 8.30h to 13.00h at Lancaster University Leipzig.

”We strongly believe that making a difference in Cyber Security requires an inclusive company culture and diverse team", so Eileen Walther from Northwave Germany, initiator of diversIT. "As such, it keeps on surprising me how homogeneous the group of representatives of the IT industry typically still is. There is this special kind of energy filling the room if ratios are flipped for a change. Can’t wait for this gathering!”

This year's Leipzig Symposium on Intelligent Systems will bring researchers from a diverse set of backgrounds together with the goal to facilitate discussions about applications and risks of intelligent systems, as well as methods to develop such systems. The expertise of the speakers at the symposium covers, among other topics, Machine Learning, Neural Networks, Logic, Cognitive Systems, Formal Methods, Knowledge Representation & Reasoning, and Hybrid Artificial Intelligence. At the same time, the event will be open to the interested public; in particular, a panel discussion on a more general topic on intelligent systems will also address students and a non-expert audience. Moreover, students’ engagement will be fostered by an on-topic creativity contest.
