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 

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), the Digital Enlightenment Forum, and 
the Digital Humanism Initiative.
