In addition, our PhD students, Adina Dumitru, Mely Fraga and Alberto Díaz, participated also in the work sessions of the conference, contrasting part of their doctoral work with researchers of a number of countries. An rich experience in contributions and discussions of interest for PhD students.

Young Researchers Doctoral Workshop

In this sense, we underline the work carried out this year by Clare Twigger-Ross, Giuseppe Carrus, Hartmut Günther and Petra Schweizer-Ries. They coordinated excellently the Young Researchers Doctoral Workshop, where PhD students from different parts of the world could contrast their work with other students and be advised by senior experts in the specific field of their specialities. Congratulations for the Organizing Committee!
