Well-being of participants

Our goal is to organise a pleasant and scientifically successful event for every participant. Therefore, on this page you will find information about contact persons in case problems are arising (you decide what is a problem!), child care and disability support. If any further assistance is needed, do not hesitate to get in touch.

Helping team

If you are experiencing any problems, please feel free to contact any of the local organizers and we will try our best to help you.

Child care support

We work with the Family Service Office of University of Siegen and the local family alliance of Siegen (Familienbüro der Stadt Siegen) which will provide daycare services.

We will be able to provide this free of charge. The child care will be in a dedicated place and will be provided by professional child carers.

In order to properly organize this service, we need to be informed in advance, so please make sure to indicate this on the registration form.

The venue will also provide a quiet place for breastfeeding (although this will be welcome anywhere), equipped with an armchair, changing table, and bottle warmer.

Some of the social events, including the conference dinner, will provide a special menu for children.

Disability support

The conference venue is completely barrier-free and fully accessible to participants with reduced mobility. There are special places for wheelchair users in all lecture halls. In addition, the lecture halls are equipped with auxiliary systems for hearing loss.

Participants who need to bring in-person support, e.g. a sign language interpreter, are welcome to do so and we will register their support person free of charge, allowing access to all social events. Please indicate this on the registration form.

Participants requiring further support or with suggestions on how we can make the event more inclusive are encouraged to get in touch with the local organizers.
