The University of Bremen in Germany starts the 25th Informatica Feminale – the International Summer University for Women in Computing. Computer scientists from academia or industry and women working interdisciplinarily in the field are cordially invited to develop and submit course offerings. Online courses to be taught from July 25th to August 5th, 2022, and courses on place in Bremen from September 1st to 14th, 2022. The course periods can be a few days or split up over the two weeks. Course offers can be submitted until February 28, 2022.
Topics from the broad field of Computer Science, ICT, and Informatics (theoretical, practical, technical or applied computing) are welcome. We invite women scientists, to take the summer university as a test field for new teaching formats and to get experience with highly engaged and interested participants. Additionally, a special training program for lecturers will be arranged.
The Informatica Feminale is part of the regular course offerings of Bremen University so that teaching assignments can be given to lecturers. Course offerings in German and in English are welcome!
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 invite teaching offers, 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. Submissions for courses, panels, workshops, and talks on topics such as gender, equality, technology and ethics are highly welcome.
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. For human resources managers we are particularly pointing out that, during the whole summer school there will be plenty of opportunities to sponsor and to get in touch with graduates.
For the Summer University we cordially invite women students of all types of universities and colleges as well as women professionals interested in further training from all over the world! You will experience three months of professional studies and establish a network with women having manifold backgrounds in a friendly and stimulating environment at the University of Bremen.
In parallel to the Informatica Feminale , we will organize the Ingenieurinnen-Sommeruni, the Summer University for Women in Engineering. You are invited to submit your course also there.
