The German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V., GI) is a non-profit organization with about 20,000 individual members and about 250 corporate members, and thus one of the largest informatics societies in Europe.
Most GI members teach, research, or work in some subfield of informatics, others are involved in related business or political areas. The main purposes of this network of professionals is to develop the scientific discipline, to motivate young people for informatics, and to promote the impact of informatics in economy, business, and society.
The Artificial Intelligence Section (FBKI, in German: GI-Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz) is the host of all activities within the German Informatics Society that are related to Artificial Intelligence or some of its subfields. FBKI organizes an annual AI conference, where scientific work from all subfields of AI is presented.
