    Practical Information

    Call for participation

    It is strongly recommended for DSM PhD students to present their research, as this is a great opportunity to get feedback from their peers.

    If you want to present your work, you can either:

    • Present during one of the parallel sessions (20' presentation + 10’ discussion animated by discussant). For this format, we will give priority to presenters who already have a working paper of their work so that we can assign it to a discussant for feedback + animation of discussion.  Registrations are closed for parallel sessions.
    • Present during the poster session, no need in this case to have a working paper, just make an A1 or A0 size poster and be prepared to explain it to participants. The poster session is canceled.
    • Enter the "My research in 180 seconds" contest, which will be divided into 2 categories (research proposal/thesis: the first category is for researchers who are still in the early stage of their research, while the second category is for researchers who are more advanced even if their thesis is not yet completed)

    You only need to fill our online form for your application to be accepted.


    Registration is mandatory and can be done through our online form. Please remember to register by May 24, 2018.
