About the Academic ceremony
Traditionally, the Academic ceremony is held once a year. The ceremony begins with the inauguration of new professors and the university awards prizes and medals of merit to people who have made great contributions to Linköping University. The ceremony continues with the conferment of doctoral degrees. New doctors and honorary doctors receive a doctor’s hat or a wreath, a diploma and sometimes a ring.
For the very first time, Linköping University can celebrate jubilee doctors during the Academic Celebration 26-27 May. Jubilee doctors are those who were conferred 50 years ago, in 1973.
