Unitopia 2022 Conference on digital transformation and democracy

12 May2022

Type: Research

Format: Workshop

Open to: Academics & researchers

New forms of information technologies have always been tightly linked with the development of political systems. Digitalisation poses a grand challenge, as it questions and challenges the ways how democratic systems and their institutions are working to this day. The University of Graz is organizing the Conference Unitopia – Digital Transformation as Democratic Moment from 12th to 14th May 2022.

For three days, experts will discuss how digital technologies are threatening or damaging modern democracies and, more interestingly, how we can shape digital technologies and the innovation systems that make them in a way that could actually benefit our democratic societies. This approach goes beyond a traditional understanding of politics, raising the question of what processes, infrastructures, and institutions are necessary to enable and foster democratic systems in the digital age.

The Conference, organized in cooperation with the Arqus Alliance, aims to provide young researchers with an opportunity to present their work to a larger community and will be accompanied by keynotes from well-known researchers, workshops on different topics focusing on interaction, knowledge creation and networking, and transfer events. The Conference language is English.
