From August 9 to 13, more than 60 young researchers and experts took part in the Summer Camp 2021 - around 30 participants attended on site in Saarbrücken and more than 30 attendees followed the event online. The Institute of Legal Informatics invited young researchers to learn about the latest projects and new developments at the cutting edge of law and informatics. Over the course of four exciting and informative days, 20 speakers gave nearly 40 presentations.

The event was held in a hybrid format, uniting interested parties from around the globe, from places such as Argentina and Haiti, with undergraduate and graduate students who attended in Saarbrücken. Speakers included staff from the chairs of Professor Georg Borges and Professor Christoph Sorge, as well as experts from among the project partners
In line with the concept of the Summer Camp - which is making project research available to interested young researchers - the speakers presented the current research projects of the Institut of Legal Informatics and enabling the audience to gain an insight into the thought processes and questions that are being worked on and researched within the projects. Autonomous driving, Montagspost, artificial intelligence and discrimination were just some of the topics covered and the speakers also went into depth and to present solutions to issues covered.
Interesting comments from the international audience encouraged speakers and participants alike to engage in a fruitful exchange of ideas, not only from a legal , but also from psychological and philosophical perspectives. Once again, the Summer Camp demonstrated how effectively interdisciplinary discussions drive research forward.
