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.

      Guided tour 1: "KATRIN Experiment: measuring the neutrino mass with the world’s most sensitive scale"

      Access restrictions: No active biomedical implants allowed

      We invite you to visit the KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino (KATRIN) Experiment located at KIT Campus North.
      KATRIN is an international project for fundamental research. Its goal is to measure the neutrino mass by precisely analysing the beta-electron spectrum of tritium. Neutrinos are the most abundant particle species in the universe. They are described in the standard model of elementary particles as being massless. However, observations of solar and atmospheric neutrinos have led to the conclusion that neutrinos indeed carry a tiny, but non-zero mass. In order to determine this mass KATRIN uses a high-luminosity tritium source and a spectrometer with 10m in diameter. With this experimental setup KATRIN holds the world-best current limit on the neutrino mass of 0.8 eV at 90% confidence level and is continuing to take data for a target sensitivity of 0.2 eV.
      More information can be found on our webpage.

    • 14:00 16:00
      Guided tour 2: "KARA and FLUTE: the KIT particle accelerators"

      Access restrictions: None

      Come visit the particle accelerators developed and operated by the Institute of Beam Physics and Technology (IBPT) at KIT!
      The research infrastructure Karlsruhe Research Accelerator (KARA) provides a 2.5-GeV storage ring and light source for experiments with electron beams and intense synchrotron radiation for deep insights into matter, biological structures, and materials.
      The FLUTE facility (name abbreviation derived from its German name: Ferninfrarot Linac- und Test-Experiment) is a linear accelerator that will provide coherent radiation in ultra-short, very intense, light pulses spanning the terahertz and far-infrared spectral range and beyond.
      More information can be found on our webpage.

      Guided tour 3: "The High Performance Computer HoreKa at Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC)": Group 1

      SCC operates large-scale research equipment and large-scale research infrastructures at KIT Campus North and Campus South. This visit concerns the High Performance Computer Horeka, which was among the 15 most powerful computers in Europe when it was commissioned in mid-2021. HoreKa can provide a computing power of approximately 17 PetaFLOPS. The system is available to scientists from all over Germany.

      Highlight lecture: Gender topics keynote
      • 14:00
        How can early career researchers contribute to the fight for equity? 1h

        Despite women leading the development of the Moderna, Astra Zeneca and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines, the majority of adults cannot name a woman scientist. That’s not entirely surprising given the national curriculum for science doesn’t include a single woman’s name. Jess will talk about how who we talk about matters, and the importance of science communication and awareness of the universality of (historic and present) scientific contributions for global human development. She’ll also discuss her efforts to increase visibility of scientists from historically marginalised groups on Wikipedia, her research in materials science and nanotechnology, the power of social media for early career researchers and her new picture book ‘Nano, the Spectacular Science of the Very (Very) Small’.

        Speaker: Dr. Jess Wade (Imperial College London)
      • 15:00
        Gender within the culture of physics 1h

        Research in physics is supposed to be objective: physicists perform experiments and measurements, mathematical derivations, or numerical simulations. The methods as well as the research objects don't have a gender.

        At the same time we observe that still today the vast majority of physicists are (white) men. Why is it like this? And what implications does this have? This talk will give an overview of the current state of research of gender and diversity studies in physics. I will highlight what we can learn from gender studies about the social context of our research practice and the everyday workplace culture in physics. Furthermore, I will address insights from the comparison with the situation in other countries and which approaches and strategies may help improve the situation.

        Speaker: Andrea Bossmann (TU Berlin)

      Workshop 2 (online only): "Self-marketing: Putting your best self forward": Afternoon

      This workshop will take place exclusively online via zoom!

      Trainer: Francesca Carlin

      Self-marketing has become more and more important in this day and age, but there is very little guidance and resources on the best practices for academics. In addition, women in academia face challenges that their male-counterparts do not when it comes to marketing and visibility. This workshop aims to provide female academics with the tools and resources to enable them to market themselves effectively and with confidence.

      Target groups: female PhD candidates, female postdocs

      Workshop 3 (offline only): "Weg in die Professur": Morning

      Trainer: Dr. Ulrike Preißler

      Das Berufsziel "Professur" kann auf unterschiedlichen Wegen erreicht werden. Im Workshop sollen typische Karrierewege zur Voll-Professur (W2/W3) beleuchtet werden, die über eine Habilitation, habilitationsäquivalente Leistungen, Forschungsgruppenleitung oder eine Juniorprofessur beschritten werden können. Es sollen im Workshop u.a.

      diese Fragen beantwortet werden: Wie sehen die Einstellungsvoraussetzungen für eine Professur aus, welche Leistungen in Forschung und Lehre werden erwartet und welche Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten sollten die Professurbewerberinnen innehaben? Wie erreicht man eine hohe Sichtbarkeit in der wissenschaftlichen Szene und wie sieht es - gerade in der Qualifizierungsphase und als junge Professorin - mit der Vereinbarkeit von Beruf und Familie aus?"

      Workshop 4 (online only): "Becoming appointable: the path to a professorship": Morning

      This workshop will take place exclusively online via zoom!

      Trainer: Dr. Margarete Hubrath

      At the end of their PhD studies or during their postdoc years many scientists are faced with the vital question of which way to go in the future: What are my professional goals and career aspirations? Do I see my future path in academia? Do I have the expertise and competencies required for a professorship in my field? Finding individual answers to these questions can be regarded as a crucial prerequisite for happiness and satisfaction with one’s professional development. The online workshop has two objectives: on the one hand, participants receive differentiated information about possible career paths towards a professorship with their conditions and requirements. On the other hand, participants will become acquainted with key elements and methods of career planning. Following the concept of triadic career counselling professional achievements as well as more personal aspects like individual preferences, motivational factors and the situation in one’s special field will be taken into account.
