For over two decades, the Earth Science Doctoral School has held a PhD Student Conference (PhDSC), congregating students from the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP), the Université Paris Diderot (UPD), and the École Normale Supérieure (ENS), as well as invited geoscience students from other European universities. Each year, 1st year PhD students from these institutions organise and orchestrate this conference – a conference by students, for students. We assemble for this year’s PhDSC at IPGP from March 13-17th (2017).
The conference provides a platform for sharing research across a broad range of geoscience disciplines, illustrating how various geo-disciplines interconnect and work in unison to describe the universe around us. Moreover, a key initiative of the conference is to bring together and connect fellow PhD students not only with each other, but also with premier researchers and industry professionals. Through presentations, poster sessions, and networking events students present and discuss their own work, engage in discussions on the work of their peers, as well as create vital connections with professionals both inside and outside academia. As the week closes, the conference will be capped by a series of presentations from leading researchers in the geosciences, as well as a conference reception where all attendees are invited to enjoy food, drinks, and conversation with each other.
As with many years in the past, we invite and encourage applications from European PhD students. Acceptance (~12 candidates) will be based on evaluation of abstract submissions, and selected candidates will have accommodations and transport costs supported by the conference.
