Promoting a sustainable, inclusive and comprehensive
framework for the use of AI that delivers global benefit.

How is the Responsible AI Forum handling COVID-19? Responsibly.

Dear all,

 The health and safety of our team, colleagues, guest speakers and participants coming from all over the world is our highest priority.

 After careful consideration and close consultation with our event partner (INTERPLAN) and in the light of the ongoing COVID-19 developments, we have decided to reschedule The Responsible AI Forum (TRAIF).

We are very happy to announce the exact dates:
TRAIF will take place from 07 – 09 June 2021 in Munich at the Holiday Inn Munich City Centre.

 Rescheduling TRAIF is the only responsible course of action at this time. Moving our event by a few months will enable us to bring together more members of academia, civil society, government and industry. Our aim is to create a safe environment where all players in the field of AI can meet and discuss the most relevant and pressing issues related to the responsible use of AI through shared stories, cutting edge research and practical applications.

Please note that we have extended the deadline for abstract-submissions and the sale of early-bird tickets to 31 January 2021. For those already registered, we would like to inform you that your registration will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled event.

 If you have questions regarding TRAIF (e.g. registration, abstract submission, how to obtain a refund if you are unable to attend, accommodation, etc.), please contact us and we will be happy to assist you (ai-forum@interplan.de).

Stay healthy and safe.

Sincerely,  
The IEAI & INTERPLAN team
