The University of Bremen in Germany cordially invites to the 27th Informatica Feminale –International Summer University for Women in Computer Science/Informatics.
From 14th to 29th August, more than 60 courses in Computer Science, ICT, and Informatics will be offered to women students in computing studies as well as to practitioners in the field. Students from other subjects get to know basic ICT and interdisciplinary course topics. There will be basic, special and interdisciplinary course topics as well as course offers concerning studies, jobs and careers.

The women´s network Informatica Feminale is a place to exchange about technical and social developments, which we meet in our every-day life and which are designed by ourselves as technical experts. The Summer University wants to give space and time for critical reflections and highly welcomes experimental debates on the relations of technological knowledge and developments in societies. We especially offer teaching, which deal with applications of technical know-how in spaces for work and life (for example within care, education, health, food, household, mobility, social networking, publicity, sports, militarization, etc.) from feminist perspectives.

All, who want to receive information about future Summer Universities, are invited to subscribe to our mailing list. Please send an email to if@informatica-feminale.de.

Companies with gender sensible organizational concepts and successful personal management strategies to promote women engineers to a broad spectrum of leading positions are invited to present their best practices to the participants of Informatica Feminale. There will be plenty of other opportunities to sponsor.

A place for experimentation in teaching

In 1998 the University of Bremen started the first summer university for women in computing: Informatica Feminale is a place for experimentation and professional exchange, with the intention to develop and imply new impulses in Computer Science and Informatics.

The concept of Informatica Feminale was developed at Bremen University and has been transfered several times to national and international places. Informatica Feminale is organized at Bremen on a yearly basis. Every summer 200-250 students participate in some 50 courses.
