Participation is also possible via internet

Please use your first and surname to register online. Those presently in Mannheim/Cologne are encouraged to attend - if possible - in person. This is more motivating for the presenters and it is easier to ask questions. You can also ask questions in the online chat though. Although we test the setup in advance and most transmissions work flawlessly, the connection with some participants may be unsatisfactory. If there are technical problems, you may find a solution here


You can find past events in our archive. For some past events, you can find video recording at the GESIS youtube channel.
