PhD Day

PhD Day - Call for the PhD Students’ Day Proposals

» Call for abstracts open on May 22nd
Closing day on September 30th 2019

 

This is an invitation to PhD students to present their study with other PhD peers. This is a special day created for PhD students and early career researchers.

In the PhD Students’ Day, special attention will be given to the PhD thesis, focusing on the different phases of doctoral research. There will be spaces/times for dialogues, presentations, posters, and debates, including the participation of Senior Researchers that will discuss parts of PhD students’ work and provide some suggestions. For instance, the opportunity of discussing data analysis will be given to doctoral students who have already collected their empirical data. There are also parallel sessions, in small groups.

PhD students can submit a proposal for ISCAR CONGRESS and the PhD Students’ Day. These two proposals must have to be different. You cannot submit the same abstract to the congress and the PhD day.
