Ph.D. posters and presentations

Four students will be selected by the organizing committee to give oral presentations.

Students wanting to present their work in form of a poster during the annual meeting can submit the title and abstract in the registration form until the 4th of March 2008 or directly to Matthias Erb (matthias.erb[at]unine.ch).

It is mandatory for members of the doctoral program participating for the first time to the annual meeting to present a poster.

A poster prize will be awarded to the best contribution according to aesthetic and scientific criteria. The invited speakers and the head of the doctoral programme will serve as jury. We're open for suggestions for the price (at the moment we're considering a free one-way ticket to the international space station).
