Scope of Symposium
The symposium will follow-in the footsteps of previous young scientist meetings held at ICMAT (2009) and in the UK (2010), with workshop-like presentations and discussions by junior faculty, postdoctoral researchers and other young scholars excelling in their respective areas of the materials sciences. Young Scientists can present their research results and novel ideas to their peers, with senior faculty mentoring their progress and discussions. As future regular ICMAT attendees, young researchers have this symposium to ‘call their own’ within ICMAT where all participants are actively involved and provide a talk. This inspires them to build links, initiate new projects and engage in mobility between Asia and Europe.
This symposium will allow participating scientists from Universities, Research Centres and Institutes to continue fostering new projects, collaborations and joint-funding applications. The relaxed atmosphere and informal talks will allow young scientists to openly engage in discussion with their peers to identify new possibilities, including drafting of new joint research projects and proposals.
The young scientists will be further supported and mentored through the participation of a number of senior scientists leading the field in the event’s scientific areas.
The following scientific areas are included: • [A] Alloys, Ceramics, Zeolites and Intermetallics • [B] Catalysis and Materials Preparation • [C] Amorphous materials and characterisation • [D] Bio- and Macro-molecules, Supramolecular Chemistry, Polymers and Implants • [E] Molecular Electronics and Organic Semiconductors • [F] Thin films, Monolayers, Photovoltaics, Sensors, Carbon materials and CNT • [G] Theory, Modeling and Computation
