Theme: Services and AI for Sustainability

The rapid digital transformation of businesses and society creates new challenges and opportunities for Service Science. With a focus on 'Digital Service Systems' the Karlsruhe Service Research Institute (KSRI) has become a globally leading service institute and a service innovation hub.

For the 8th time, KSRI invites international experts from industry and academia to the Service Summit in Karlsruhe on October 14th. Digital service experts and stakeholders from important service domains will give you insights into their visions and showcase industry examples. In addition to keynote speeches, researchers from KSRI and its partners from KIT as well as industrial partners will present their latest research results - via hands-on demonstrations and a poster exhibition.

With this year's theme, we focus on the the potential of digital services and AI for society and the economy and further sustainable development. Be part of the future, design the digital transformation in an inspiring atmosphere and connect with peers and thought leaders!
