GI-Dagstuhl Seminars



The designated purpose of the GI-Dagstuhl Seminars is fostering young researchers by enabling them to explore a designated field or topic.


Proposals for GI-Dagstuhl Seminars are submitted to and approved by the Advisory Board of University Professors of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GIBU) and funded in part by the Gesellschaft for Informatik e.V. (GI, German Society for Informatics) and by Schloss Dagstuhl. GI-Dagstuhl Seminars are conducted at Schloss Dagstuhl.


GI-Dagstuhl Seminars are research seminars on current informatics topics. The seminars address students at the undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral level who actively want to learn about new developments in informatics. The idea is to disseminate these new developments at universities by selecting participants from a wide range of different fields.




The seminar participants cover young researchers from throughout the world (students at the undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral level) who have convincingly shown their research skills in the past. Though no preference is given with regard to specific fields of study, an attempt is made to attract participants from a wide variety of academic institutions.


The group of participants is determined by an procedure proposed by the seminar organizers. In the past, an application procedure was often successfully applied, but other procedures are also possible.

GI-Dagstuhl Seminars are sponsored by the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. and Schloss Dagstuhl to foster young academics in informatics. A participant of a GI-Dagstuhl-Seminar pays 50 EUR per night for accomodation/full board.
