At the Saarbrücken Computer Science Research Days, young computer science talents from all over Germany have the opportunity to take a first look at computer science studies and get to the bottom of current research questions together with students and scientists from Saarland University and the computer science institutes located at the site.

The Saarbrücker Forschungstage take place regularly since 2008. This year, 45 students between the ages of 16 and 19 are taking part. These are successful participants in the second round of the German National Computer Science Competition (BwInf) and excellent computer science high school graduates from all over Germany.

Once again this year, students will be offered exciting program items and workshops in which researchers will give them an insight into their current projects and everyday scientific life.

The Saarbrücken Forschungstage are organized in close cooperation with the Nationwide Computer Science Competitions (BWINF) and pursue the common goal of attracting young computer science enthusiasts to the subject. The Federal Computer Science Competition has been held annually since 1980 and is organized by the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI), the Fraunhofer-Verbund IUK-Technologie and the Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics. The competition is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
