The Centre for Criminology regularly organises annual conferences for a broader professional community. Subjects are often connected to the institute's research or take up issues of current criminological or policy-oriented debates. Most conference papers have been published in edited volumes of the "Kriminologie und Praxis (KuP)" series. The conference language is German in general with some exceptions for international contributions.
On some occasions, more focused workshops have been organised as parts of planned or current research.
