2nd IdRA Young Researchers' Conference

25/05/17 - 26/05/17

After the success of the first edition, the Institute for Water Research (IdRA) is committed to continuing this initiative for another year. On this occasion, the 2nd IdRA Young Researchers' Conference will last two days. The first day will be devoted to presenting the participants' scientific work and the second day will feature a social activity designed to help the young speakers get to know each other better.

The IdRA Young Researchers' Conference aims to provide a forum for scientific exchange for young researchers linked to the IdRA. The goal is to promote the transfer of their work to the wider scientific community while encouraging communication and cooperation between young researchers.

The 2nd IdRA Young Researchers' Conference will take place on 25 and 26 May 2017. Thursday 25th will be dedicated to the research presentations and on Friday morning, we will visit a rainwater and wastewater regulation facility in Barcelona. The location of the visit will be announced soon.

This 2nd IdRA Young Researchers' Conference is aimed at:

•     Master's students

•     PhD students

•     Post-doctoral students (who read their thesis after 2011)

•     Other researchers (up to 35 years of age)

Participants must be linked to an IdRA member, who will have to endorse their participation.
The young researchers will have 10 minutes to present their research, individually or in groups (maximum 3 people), followed by a short 5-minute discussion. The presentations may be in Catalan, Spanish or English. Given that this is an interdisciplinary conference, the work must be concise and informative so that all attendees can understand the presentation.

Interested parties should fill in the registration form and provide a proposal for participating in the conference and a summary of their presentation using the attached template.  The files must be sent with the following nomenclature:

•         Registration form: link here
•         Proposal for participation: “170525_proposta_ponent_jji_cognom1cognom2.pdf
•         Summary: “170525_resum_ponencia_jji_cognom1cognom2.docx
These two documents must be sent to institutaigua@ub.edu by 30 March 2017. This deadline cannot be extended.

Proposals will be evaluated and, where appropriate, accepted by the scientific and organising committee. The authors of the papers will receive a certificate of participation.

The event will be free to attend, although those wishing to receive a certificate of attendance will have to fill in the registration form before 20 April. Attendees will receive a dossier with a summary of the presentations.
