1st Scientific Meeting of ICMAB Students
May 25th 2011


We thought that sharing the work done by our fellow PhD students would be a good idea; we thought that it would be better still if this work was presented by the students themselves. This is the reason why ICMAB students have decided to organise a day of conferences, where the students will present their own work. The response to this proposal by the whole institute has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic so much so that the organization has had to set a limit to the number of possible contributors and a time-limit for each presentation. For this reason we are proud to present the “1st Scientific Day of ICMAB PhD Students”! The objective of this event is to share with a wider public the work done by the ICMAB students, while giving the students the opportunity to present their work. For this reason the event and its programme have been organised by the students alone.Despite the event being focused on networking between students, we want it to be more than just that, we also see it as a window for the public into the basic research activity performed at our institute. That is why the “1st Scientific Day of ICMAB PhD Students" is also open to ICMAB staff and the scientific community at large. Due to limited seating you will need to register to participate (free of charge).
