Support for Events
We are happy to support you in organising academic events with a linguistic focus. This includes, for example, linguistic conferences, workshops, symposia, lectures, academic networking events, writing weeks, or summer- and winterschools. We can support you with organisational know-how, financially, or by providing infrastructure.
You have an idea for an event, but don’t know how you can financially support it?
Please contact us for financial support at vorstand [at] junge-sprachwissenschaft [dot] de sending us a simple letter of application. In this letter you should describe your idea and motivation for the event, provide a list of costs and existing partners and supporters.
For financial support of your event it has to correspond to the purpose of our association and meet the following criteria:
- academic, linguistic focus
- initiated and organised by students and/or doctoral candidates
- no or no sufficient financial support from the university, the student body or the student council
So far, we have collected experience with the following:
Website and email hosting
We can offer you a domain and, if you need it, a content management system to create content and designs for your website. We also provide you with a professional email address like stuts64 [at] stuts [dot] de.
We offer you a shared file system for your entire team. This removes problematic storage limits and makes you independent of commercial providers such as Dropbox or Google Drive. In many cases, this is also a better choice in terms of data protection, because, being a German association, we do fully comply – in general, unlike US companies – with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR).
Conference management via frab, Android app, and registration forms
If your event requires registration or a call for papers, we can provide you with the necessary infrastructure. That way, you can create registration forms with automatic confirmation emails or use the conference management system (Frab) to organise your call for papers and to present your programme online with our easy-to-use systems. If you choose Frab to manage your programme, we can even upload an Android app branded for your event to Google’s Play Store.
Videoconference with Jitsi
We can provide you with the possibility to host your online meetings via our Jitsi videobridge. More information under Online Workspace.
StuTS information booklet
We offer an information booklet for StuTS organisation teams, which brings together experiences and hints from past StuTS teams.
StuTS conference booklets and proceedings
We have templates for proceedings and conference booklets from several past StuTS editions. Just ask us if you are in need of inspiration or templates. You can find PDF versions of most past programmes at Bisherige Gastgeber (past hosts).
Editorial office of stuts.de
We manage the editing of stuts.de in order to guarantee the website’s continuity. However, the website of course belongs to the StuTS community. Therefore, we are always happy to hear of people who want to contribute to the page. We can also advertise your events via the website. Just get in touch if you are interested.
Legal person for contracts and insurances
As an association, we are able to act as a legal person to represent purely academic events for contracts and insurances. Thereby, liability would lie with the association rather than you as private citizens and you are guarded against many possible liability issues.
For purely academic events, the association can act as organiser and conduct all financial transactions via our bank account.
Advertisement via our social media channels
We are present at a number of social media platforms through which we are happy to share your advertisements for linguistic events. Feel free to contact us directly via the respective platforms. We are always happy to share your calls.
Ideas and advice
Many members are long-standing StuTS attendees, who can support you with practical advice and creative ideas. Some of us have organised StuTS conferences in the past and all of us have extensive networks at different universities. Just approach us if you have any questions. Maybe we have just the idea you need right now to move on in organising the next StuTS (or, of course, any other event).
If anything here sounds interesting to you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email at vorstand [at] junge-sprachwissenschaft [dot] de or on social media.
