A few words about the PhD Student Conference
Since 1993, the STEP'UP doctoral school has organized the “Congrès Des Doctorants” (CDD), a yearly conference to promote the research of PhD students from the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP), the University Paris Diderot (UPD), the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) and the University Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC). This congress features posters presentations from 1st and 2nd year PhD students, and talks from 3rd year PhD students and foreign students from other European universities. This year, for the first time the congress will be organised by the 1st year PhD students from both components of the doctoral school (Environment Sciences and the Physics of the Universe). This vastly increases the scope of the scientific topics covered and illustrates the interdisciplinary of the STEP’UP doctoral school. The goal of this conference is to establish links between students, researchers and professionals in the geosciences and physics of the universe fields. The 2019 edition will be held at IPGP from March 25-29.
The week will be organized around a number of research themes. Besides students’ presentations, one day will be dedicated to employment opportunities, with meetings and talks from industry and academia professionals and training sessions to learn to promote students' skills. The last day will focus on presentations from leading researchers on the topic “Scale of time”. The end of the conference will be followed by a reception organized by the Hekla association, to allow all participants to share food and drinks together.
