Some advice: In case you are not eligible for this support you can try with the various CRCs, excellence clusters, graduate schools, ... at your university. They have money for equal opportunity. If you are a member of these scientific programs you can ask for support. You can also ask the equal opportunity offices of your universities if they can support you. If you are already affiliated with an institute you can ask the director of the institute or your supervisor for support. 

Child care:
If you need child care during DPT2022 please fill in the corresponding fields in the registration form. 


The German Conference of Women in Physics (Deutsche Physikerinnentagung), taking place annually since 1997, is supported by the German Physical Society (Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft DPG) and by its Working Group on Equal Opportunities (AKC). This year's conference will be hosted by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

The conference offers female physicists of different areas and at different career levels - from student to professor as well as physicists in industry - the possibility for networking and professional exchange. The program of the conference covers scientific talks from different areas of physics with special focus on the research performed at KIT, the presentation of professional perspectives for physicists, school and didactic events as well as events on topics like equal opportunity, work-life balance, or career management. 

The scientific program will consist of keynote talks and a selection of registered talks. If you are interested in giving a talk (oral or in a poster session) you will have the possibility to send an abstract once the registration will be open. The talks will be selected by the scientific organization committee. You will also have the possibility to register for various workshops and events in due time. 

The conference will take place in person (if the then current Covid rules allow for it). A good part of the program will also be broadcasted online. - Should it turn out that Covid rules will not allow for an in person format in November we will switch to the online format. The majority of the talks and events will be in English (details will be given in due time).

Patron of the conference is Frau Bettina Stark-Watzinger, Federal Minister for Education and Research.
