The Long Night of the Sciences (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften, LNDW) took place on July 2nd, 2022 with three formats presented by the HCC Research Group. The LNDW is a yearly event that has been taking place since 2001. This year, on July 2nd, from 5 pm to midnight, scientific and science-related institutions in Berlin and Potsdam opened their doors. We welcomed more than 800 visitors at the Institute of Computer science.
The HCC Research Group's contribution to this year's LNDW focused on communicating privacy risks associated with digital services. We conveyed the importance of privacy from the perspective of human-computer interaction and how to better protect it - without having to lead a life offline. Anyone who uses the Internet unknowingly pays with their data. In addition to private information that we actively enter, for example, when we shop online, personal data is also being recorded automatically without us noticing.
