Culture Events

Culture – Culture is diverse and can be experienced in different ways. Culture can be defined and understood very broadly. The ISWI adopts the concept of culture and organizes various events under the aspect of “cultural events”. Different aspects of culture are illuminated, but all events have the same goal: they connect visitors in different ways. Be it through sport, food, music or craftsmanship – visitors have the opportunity to interact with each other and deal with the big ISWI 2023 topic of “Knowledge, Information and Data” in the context of cultural events.

The official language of the conference is English. But in many cultural events, language, a man-made construction, will play a less important role. Sport and music are e.g. also types of languages that allow visitors and participants to communicate with each other.

With this in mind, we cordially invite everyone to be a part of the ISWI and breathe life into the cultural events.
