Conference for student research
in the field of electrical engineering
in relation to environment and society
September 29 – October 1, 2024, Kiel, Germany



Apply now!
The first Conference for Student Research in Electrical Engineering (StuFoTech) will take place in Kiel in 2024: Visit us at the Baltic Sea, meet interesting people from different fields and network over dinner, report on your research, take part in sessions and workshops and develop yourself further on a personal and professional level.

Who may apply?
All students (Bachelor/Master) and doctoral candidates with a connection to electrical engineering from Germany and Europe can submit their interesting student research contributions - various disciplines are welcome, e.g. also students and doctoral candidates in materials science, computer science, biology, physics and medicine. Also of interest are contributions from the humanities that examine the role of electrical engineering from a social perspective.

Diverse contribution formats are welcome!
Present your Bachelor's thesis, project work, Master's thesis or your research projects and results as part of your doctorate. The work does not have to be completed - your ideas and plans are also of interest.


Contributions can be in the form of a short presentation or a poster. You can publish your final submissions worldwide open access via the MACAU publication server after the conference.

To apply, please submit an easy to understand abstract of max. 2,500 characters and at least one meaningful figure. The contributions should be submitted and presented in English. All those interested can apply from now until April 15, 2024. Please use our  OLAT-Conference Portal (choose language in the upper right and click 'guest access') for your application. All current information will also be provided there.


The conference is organized by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Kiel University.
