At the invitation of the Vice Chancellor, new professors (installandi) with one guest are invited to attend the ceremony as well as the banquet following the ceremony, free of charge.

Affiliated, visiting and adjunct professors are also invited to the ceremony and banquet, with one guest. Those categories will be mentioned in the printed programme but will not be participating in the ceremony.

New professors may add two additional guests to the ceremony and banquet on a waiting list, which is done during registration. You will be notified by e-mail in the end of August, when all registrations have been made, if there are seats available for additional guests to the banquet. The cost for the banquet for an additional guest is 1500 SEK.

Other guests to the ceremony only are welcome to attend free of charge, but an entrance card is required.

Our recommendation is that children should not attend the conferment ceremony.


Formal dress is required at the conferment ceremony and banquet reception. This may be either ”white tie and tails” with a white vest (may include orders/medallions) or an evening gown. There are no dress requirements for those guests who will only attend the conferment ceremony in the Blue Hall.


An obligatory rehearsal will take place in the Blue Hall at the City Hall at 4 p.m. the day before the conferment ceremony, i.e. Thursday 28 September. This usually takes about 1 1/2 hours.

Photography and live broadcast

The ceremony will also be broadcast live on After the ceremony the film will be found and stored on the same page.


Registration for the ceremony is done by following the link printed on the invitation card.
