130. Meeting, Saarbrücken, September 14.-17. 2018

Digitisation of the Sciences, from Structures to Processes

Dear members, friends and sponsors of the GDNÄ,

The digitisation of science enables the analysis and simulation of complex processes using computers based on structural models.

For the first time in its almost 200-year history, GDNÄ comes to Saarland, which is ideally suited as a state of information technology for this topic of our 130th meeting.

The Internet and the first wave of digitization had revolutionized access to scientific results. In the meantime, computer science has developed methods for all sciences to automatically evaluate digital mass data. However, the second wave of digitisation triggered by this also fundamentally changes the way scientists work and thus holds enormous potential for breakthroughs in science, medicine and technology.
