The International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems is governed by an executive board consisting of seven faculty members spanning the core research fields pertaining to IMPRS-IS. Three of these board members take on additional duties serving as a spokesperson or deputy spokesperson to represent one of the program's three institutions.
The International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems has four student representatives to bring forward any opinions, concerns, and ideas from their peers regarding their academic or work experience. Scholars should reach out to any representative of their choice to seek support when needed.
Student reps are nominated annually by IMPRS-IS scholars with one of each four reps representing the various IMPRS-IS research sites.
