Important to convenors of ZiF Workshops:

In co-operation with the PR-office of Bielefeld University, the local as well as the national press is informed about ZiF Workshops. In order to be able to do so, the ZiF needs an intelligible one-page statement concerning topic and contents of the workshop at least two weeks in advance. If there are particular institutions or persons to be informed, or if a press conference should be organized, please contact the ZiF's Conference Office.

Contact persons for PR at the ZiF are Marion Kämper and Mary Kastner.
