Guidelines for publishing in the calendar

Events that are to be added to the calendar must:

  • be open to external visitors (the public, schools, etcetera) and preferably have one of these as the main target group
  • take place at or near one of the university's locations (or digitally)
  • have the University (faculty, department/equivalent) as the main organiser or co-organiser of the event. Events in which individual researchers from Lund University participate, but which are organised by organisations other than the University, are not to be added to the calendar.

Upcoming PhD thesis defences – not in the calendar

Adding an event to several different calendars

Most faculties/equivalent also have their own local calendars. The calendar sharing service is there to make it easier for those who want to easily publish an event in several calendars at the same time.

The additional calendars you can share your event to when you are logged in to the calendar sharing service, depends partly on where in the organisation you work, and partly on whether you have received extended authorisations from a calendar administrator. 

Contact your nearest web editor if you have questions about the website at your particular workplace.
