Do I need to register for lectures?

No, participation in lectures at SFI does not require any prior registration.

Do I need to register for workshops?

Yes, participation in workshops at SFI does require prior registration due to the limited number of participants. Registration will be announced a few days before the Festival on our Facebook page: facebook.com/sfikrakow.

Can I get a confirmation of participation in the Conference (workshop)?

Confirmations of participation in the Conference, signed by the Lead Coordinator, can be obtained at the SFI front desk during the event.
Confirmations of participation in a specific workshop, signed by the teacher, are handed out after the workshop.

Can you provide me with an excused absence from classes for either University or lower levels school?

You can get a confirmation of participation, mentioned above. However, it depends entirely on your teachers, whether or not it counts as an excused absence.

I have comments about SFI, how can I share them with the organizers?

We encourage you to share them with us in person during SFI. You can also send them to us via the contact form below. We will be happy to receive any comments so that we can improve SFI together.

Where can I find up-to-date info about the program and the speakers?

All this information can be found on Our website: https://www.sfi.org.pl/.

Can I take photos or record lectures or workshops?

Taking photos is allowed as long as you do it discreetly – do not disturb the lecture/workshop, so no flash or loud sounds. Not all of the speakers give consent for the recording of their presentations. We politely ask you to refrain from recording videos during SFI to respect the privacy and requests of our presenters. Lectures will be recorded by those who have explicit permissions from the organizers and then shared on our YouTube.

Where are/will be available the recordings of the lectures?

Selected recordings will be uploaded to our YouTube profile: http://www.youtube.com/user/StudenckiFestiwalInf

I’d like to talk to a speaker about his presentation – is there such a possibility?

We will try to create a calm place for such conversation, however, it depends entirely on the speaker. Above all, we ask you to respect the privacy of our speakers who are either preparing to or relaxing after their lectures and do not interrupt them in the Speakers’ room.

I want to get my hands on SFI T-shirt, how do I do that?

There are a few ways you can come across an SFI T-shirt. You can take part in any of our contests, attend the lectures (sometimes we give out shirts at the end) or join us and become an Organizer!

Are there any restaurants near the SFI venue?

Yes, there is a couple of places near SFI where you can grab a bite. You can get more accurate information by checking out our map, available in the SFI-leaflets handed out at the SFI front desk.

I need power! Where can I charge my mobile/laptop?

There will be marked places on SFI intended for this purpose.
Power will be also available in workshop classrooms.

I’ve found/lost something on SFI, what to do next?
