So after I bought the ticket I become a member of GCAAI?

Yes! Because your ticket includes one-year membership of GCAAI. You are now officially a member of German-Chinese Association of Artificial Intelligence e.V.

What if I'm already a paid GCAAI member, do I get a discount?

Yes! GCAAI member has the access to the discount price of the event. In this case, you just need to send a mail to contact@gcaai.org and ask for a voucher code. The voucher code will count for 20 Euro, results a final ticket price of 10 Euro + 1.44 Euro (fee charged by EventBrite)

Is the lunch included?

Yes, the lunch is included and is free for participants.

Are there coffee breaks?

There are at least two coffee breaks in the morning and afternoon. Beverage and snacks are free for participants.

You are a non-profit organization, so why do you charge people for the ticket?

NPO status suggests the goal of GCAAI is never business-oriented. However, we do need to cover the cost of this event and the operation cost of GCAAI, just like every other organization or business. We always do our best to cut the spending and give you the optimal offer.

I just want to register as a GCAAI member, I don't want to attend this event, what should I do?

We strongly recommend you to join this event as the annual meeting is the biggest event of the year for GCAAI. In the annual meeting, you will get to know the look-back and plan of GCAAI as well as network with other GCAAI members. That said, you can do member-registration alone on https://gcaai.org Click that orange "Join" button on the top-right corner, fill in the form and transfer the membership fee.

I just want to attend this event but I don't want to be a member of GCAAI, what should I do?

As a speaker of this event, you can join as a non-member of GCAAI. Otherwise, it's difficult because we must follow the German laws on the non-profit organization (i.e. Gemeinnützige Vereine).

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

For any question, please send an email to contact@gcaai.org

I have to stay in Berlin for a night, is there a discount on hotels nearby you can provide?

We are terribly sorry but we don't have discount on the hotels.
