Daniel Krupka and Cornelia Winter form the new management of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI), the largest community of computer scientists in the German-speaking world.

Daniel Krupka will lead the office in Berlin and maintain contact with politics, business and associations while Cornelia Winter is responsible for club management and the Bonn office.

The new appointments have been welcomed by GI President, Professor Dr.-Ing. Peter Liggesmeyer: “I am convinced that the company for computer science, under the new management of Cornelia Winter and Daniel Krupka, will further expand its impact as the most important specialist for computer science in the German-speaking world. Against the background of the increasing digitalisation of all living and working areas, an independent, expert and well-audible voice of computer science is important – in science, politics and business. The GI will continue to represent the interests of computer science in debates about digital change, for example, on issues of education in a digital world, data protection, IT security, digital monitoring and dealing with social media.”

Daniel Krupka recently headed the Capital Agency of the PR agency, Loeschhund Liepold Kommunikation and, as Director of Corporate Communication, advised companies, institutions and brands on communication issues across the fields of energy, IT and digititalzation. He studied Public Policy and Management at the University of Konstanz, Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, and York University, Toronto, Canada.

Cornelia Winter has been with the GI since 2000 and has been responsible for the press and public relations work as well as the accompaniment of the committees. Before that, she worked as a journalist at the Japanese financial newspaper “Sankei Shinbun” and the Japanese news agency “Kyodo News”. She studied Japaneseology, religious studies and ethnology at the universities of Bonn, Cologne and as a Rotary scholarship holder at the Imperial University in Nagoya, Japan.
