In what form does the Conference Week take place?

For the second time, there will be a digital Conference Week. All events will take place online.

Doesn't the sense of community get totally lost in a digital conference?

It would undoubtedly be nicer if we could see each other on campus for the Conference Week. At the moment, however, it is difficult to foresee how the pandemic will develop until the beginning of March. For the safety of everyone involved, we have therefore decided on a digital Conference Week.

However, we strongly encourage you not to follow the conference from home alone. It is best to meet up with other students in a small circle to experience four wonderful conference days together.

I don't have a quiet place to work at home and I can't meet with anyone?

We can provide a certain number of workstations on campus. If you have a need for this, please email us at konferenzwoche@leuphana.de.

What should I do if I am ill and cannot attend the conference week?

If you are unable to attend the Conference Week for health reasons, please cancel your registration with the module team as soon as possible. In this case, it is best to write an email to verantwortung@leuphana.de. Remember that you need a medical certificate. You should also inform your project group and your seminar leader.

Do I have to register for the Conference Week on QIS?

No - by registering with QIS for the module exam, you are also covered for the part of the exam that takes place at the conference. If you have any questions about the study and examination performance, it is worth taking a look at the conference package, which we will send you by email in the second week of February.

How can I register for the Conference Week and when?

Please register for the 2022 conference week on EventMobi. We will send the link to your firstname.lastname@stud.leuphana.de-Adresse at the end of February. Please use this email address for registration as well. However, you will not be able to register until we have activated EventMobi. This is expected to happen on 23 February at 1 pm. Then register for your events in good time, but no later than 28 February 2022.

If you have any questions about the exam and the course work, it is worth taking a look at the conference package, which we will send you by email in the second week of February.

What happens if I make a mistake when registering on EventMobi?

You are responsible for your own registration on EventMobi. However, if something is unclear to you or you think you have made a mistake, you can of course send us an email atkonferenzwoche@leuphana.de at any time. We will then help you out.

Where can I find information about the study and examination achievements during Conference Week?

On 15 February we sent you an email with the so-called conference package to your vorname.nachname@stud.leuphana.de-Adresse. In this email, we answer all your questions regarding the study and examination achievements during Conference Week. If you have not received the package, please send us an email to konferenzwoche@leuphana.de.

What are the Oasis and the Speciality Evenings?

In the seminar for the Conference Week, the participants came up with a whole range of formats - by students for students!

Relaxation is the order of the day in the Oasis. A zoom room to meet, chat and to catch your breath. Short yoga sessions get your circulation going and at lunchtime you cook together.

The Speciality Evenings are a bit more action-packed: drinks yoga, PowerPoint karaoke, a pub quiz and, of course, various music acts.

What is the Salzkristall?

With the Salzkristall 2022, we award particularly creative and convincing project work and the corresponding presentations of the Conference Week. Apply by 24 February 2022 at the latest.

Is the Conference Week in German or English?

There will be English- and German-language events. The seminar plenary sessions and the project group sessions will be held in the respective seminar language. You can find out in which language an event will take place in the programme.

Can I take part in the Conference Week if I am not a freshman or do not study at Leuphana at all?

Yes, very much so. Our live streams from the studio are freely accessible via YouTube. Only the project group sessions and some seminar plenaries are not public for data protection reasons.
