HPSL Day 2022

Following last year’s successful first instalment of the HPSL Day, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 2022 HPSL Day in Freiburg. The event takes place on Friday, October 28.10.2022 from 10 am to 6 pm. We are currently planning to hold the event at Kollegiengebäude I (Platz der Universität) according to current COVID-19 guidelines, but depending on the state of the pandemic we might need to switch to a digital or hybrid format.

If you have any questions, you can reach us via We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you in Freiburg in October!

Poster proposals

One of the central goals of the event is to provide PhD students with an opportunity to present their projects to their peers. We will do so in the form of a session in order to allow for in-depth discussions between presenters and the audience, and to allow for more people to present. *Poster submission has already closed.*

We are glad to announce that due to generous funding from the doctoral representative of the University of Freiburg, all posters can be printed via the university’s printing service. There will be no charge for the individual presenters.

The book of abstracts is available here:


Besides the poster session, the event will feature two keynote lectures, by Prof. Erik Schleef on research methods and Judith Beck on psychological resilience, and socialising activities. Afterwards, the HPSL prize for the best dissertation will be awarded, followed by a reception. The detailed programme can be found here.

Please note that lunch will not be provided, but there will be snacks and drinks during the coffee breaks and we are happy to provide suggestions for nice and affordable places for a self-paid lunch in town during the lunch break.
