Review of the Online Summer Courses 2021

pink

Dear Participants, Lecturers, and Friends of the Summer Universities 2021,

again as last year, the 24th Informatica Feminale had to stay online and our plans for courses in Bremen were stopped.

But as always the lecturers were flexible, the students’ echos great, and from July to October, some 50 courses went ahead. Some course were booked out in hours after publication; others realized settings with few students and very intensive learning. Lecturers sent hardware for experiments to their students; participants organized their own lunch meetings and got happy about virtual networking.

Many thanks to the wonderful lecturers, who participated with full engagement. We are especially pleased, that you followed with interest our special online training program for lecturers about the topics privacy, facilitation, and protection from discrimination in online teaching.

Many thanks also to all the 180 participants for active participation, discussions, comments and criticism, networking and collegiality!
We as organizers have again learnt much about a reasonable design of the Summer University. Some courses with huge practical parts are difficult to realize online. At the same time we will support the wish of those participants, who for different reasons, would never have been able to travel to Bremen. In future, we will arrange weeks with online teaching as well as physical courses in Bremen. Hopefully, both the plans will be realized next year already!

But we miss you all – lecturers and participants – on place in Bremen. No cafeteria, no field trips, no guests. Next year, the 25th Informatica Feminale will be organized – a good reason to celebrate a “real” party.

We invite you all to partcipate and look forward to welcoming you next summer in Bremen!

Greetings
Henrike Illig, Isabel Matthias, Veronika Oechtering

Scholarships

This year, we offer a certain number of scholarships for travel and accommodation to support students. Please approach your home university regarding financial support as well — we’ll be happy to advise you on this.

The organizers of the Informatica Feminale at the University of Bremen coordinate all scholarships. The allowances will be issued in regard to the overall travel expenses: 10,00 Euro per overnight stay and (partly) travel expenses according to consultation with us. We expect our scholarship holders to choose the cheapest bus/ train/ flight ticket option so that we can fund as many participants as possible. Public transport in Bremen will not be covered and not returned.

We will support international students to find cheap and good accommodation in the near of the university, according to individual contacts in advance.

Evidence must be provided for all expenses. Please note that original documents must be provided in Bremen as supporting evidence.
Reimbursements of expenses will be paid around 2-3 months after the end of the summer universities (other arrangements are possible only for international students, according to individual contacts in advance).

Scholarship holders are exempt from the participation fee.

Financial support by other universities
In past years, a lot of universities supported their students financially to a certain extent, assisting them in covering the costs of participation for the summer universities. Please contact your dean or the faculty’s equal opportunity officer at your university.

Scholarship Application
An application for a scholarship has to be filed in the application form. Furthermore, a scholarship application letter needs to be turned in via e-mail or facsimile within 7 days of your application. Claims submitted later cannot be considered!

How to write a scholarship application letter?
The letter should be informal. Please send us a PDF document, including your own letterhead, addressed to Informatica Feminale (see below).
Please outline briefly your progress with your studies and why you would like to participate in the summer universities at the University of Bremen.

Please e-mail your letter saved in PDF-file format to if@informatica-feminale.de or via facsimile to: +49 (0)421 / 218-98-64469

Child Care

Throughout the summer universities we offer a free daily child care for the participants’ and lecturers’ children.

Child care is offered for children between 1 and 12 years of age (please ask in advance if you need child care for babies).

The children will stay in a children’s group room on the Campus of the University of Bremen, taken care of by a team of experienced childcare workers.
Your child/children is/are supposed to eat and spend time together with you during lunch time.

We ask you to make a binding registration in advance, if you need childcare during your stay in Bremen.
Following up, we will then arrange planning in more detail regarding your child’s/children’s experience and settling in as well as what to bring along.

The primarily necessary information will be asked for during the registration process. Do not hesitate to ask us if you have any further questions.

Opening hours
The summer universities’ conference office will be open
Monday-Friday from 8.30 — 17.30 o’clock and
Saturdays from 9.30 — 18.00 o’clock (Sundays closed).
You will receive all necessary documents at the summer universities’ conference office.

The course rooms will be listed in the conference folders. You will receive your folder at the summer universities’ registration office. We do not publish room information on the website because our experience has shown that there are to many changes during the summer university weeks that need face-to-face contacts.
