The Digital Society Institute cordially invites you to the Digital Society Conference 2019: Sheep, Wolf, or Shepherd? Europe’s Role in a Digital World . Leaders, developers and innovators from industry, science and government will join to debate Europe´s strengths and weaknesses in digitization and cybersecurity. How should Europe position itself in the global digital arena? How can it contribute to global security and stability? How should it respond to the US-China technology rivalry? And how can Europe build digital champions? We will discuss these questions from political and technical perspectives.
The event will kick-off with an evening reception from 7-9PM on December 9, 2019 (Registration opens at 6PM). The main conference day on December 10, 9AM - 6PM, will bring six tracks, each offering a briefing and a panel:
• European digital capabilities, persistent hurdles, and options to evolve
• Technology nationalism, digital sovereignty, and the open digital market
• Cybersecurity standards: Europe´s next big regulatory shot?
• The new AI in the military domain
• Cyber defense strategies for Europe – Embracing “Persistent Engagement”?
• The rise of digital authoritarianism
