Alongside the program in the main hall, the Digital Future Science Match 2019 offers participants the opportunity to take part in two interactive side events. Both workshops will take place at KOSMOS Berlin as well, so you will be able to easily switch between the main program and the side events. For registration to one or both of the workshops please contact us (digital-future@tagesspiegel.de). Please note that you need to provide a valid conference ticket in order to get access to the workshop room.
