I would like to create a registration form for a series of lectures participants could sign up for. However, depending on the lecture, there is a different limitation of numbers of participants that can sign up for it.

So far, I found the course registration template, however it does not allow to use it with the "checkboxes" but only with "choose from the list" question type. In the registration form I try to create, they should be able to choose more than one option (therefore use the question type "checkboxes" instead of "choose from a list").

Do you know if there is any possibility in Google Docs to specify a limited number of participants for each lecture?

Short answer

Google Forms doesn't include a limit on the number of responses as built-in feature but you could extend the of Google Docs editors features though add-ons or Google Apps Script.



From: https://sites.google.com/a/newvisions.org/scripts_resources/add-ons/formlimiter

formLimiter automatically sets Google Forms to stop accepting responses after a maximum number of responses, at a specific date and time, or when a spreadsheet cell contains a specified value.

Great for time-bound assignments, event registrations with limited seats, or other first-come, first-served signup scenarios.
