Eve of the F.A.Z. Conference Digitalisation & Law

Legal aspects of the Industry 4.0 and of the AI use in daily businesses

The F.A.Z. Conference Digitalisation & Law, an event organised by the German newspaper "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (short: F.A.Z.)", examines, amongst others, the legal aspects of digitalisation and Industry 4.0. Digitalisation does not only imply technological and economic challenges, but does also raise a number of legal questions.

In barely another location, both topics of digitalisation and law meet like in Karlsruhe. The city, in which the first email was sent and which is the centre of autonomous driving in Germany, is at the same time the most important place of jurisdiction in Germany.  This collaboration makes Karlsruhe the ideal venue for the F.A.Z. Conference Digitalisation & Law.

The eve of the event on September 24, 2019 is dedicated to investigating the question "What are we actually talking about...?" in real examples and products in the laboratories of the FZI Research Center for Information Technology.

This is only one of the numerous topics, which will be discussed in a practical and solution-oriented way at the F.A.Z. Conference Digitalisation & Law. On the main event day on September 25, 2019, we will talk in plenary (with keynote speeches and live interviews) and in parallel workshops during this F.A.Z. Conference in addition and in close consultation with partners about legal questions concerning topics like AI, digitalisation in small and medium-sized companies, smart contracts, cybersecurity, liability and insurance.

The F.A.Z. Conference Digitalisation & Law addresses the first and second management levels of manufacturing small and medium-sized companies and company representatives with a focus, like managers, in-house lawyers, project lawyers, managers of digitalisation and digital affairs. Representatives of consultancy companies, audit companies and further (financial) service providers are exempted from a participation, apart from the sponsors.

A registration is requested.
