Dear PhD Students and Postdoc Researchers,
Dear Colleagues and Collaborators,
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the third edition of the Scientific Conference organised by the Doctoral Schools of “Dunărea de Jos” University of Galați (CSSD-UDJG 2015), 4-5 June 2015.
The management team and the two multidisciplinary doctoral schools of UDJG, i.e. the Doctoral School of Engineering and the Doctoral School of Humanities and Social Sciences, aim to promote excellence in research within a broader framework of interdisciplinarity, to set up partnerships and collaborative relationships in related fields through the exchange of knowledge and expertise.
Along these lines, this conference is intended to bring together young researchers and internationally acclaimed specialists in view of emphasizing the impact of scientific research on the knowledge based society of today.
Given the multidisciplinary nature of the conference, the invited keynote speakers, renowned academics and scientists from Romania and other EU countries, will deliver presentations on topics of interest to all participants. The general theme for this year’s plenary speeches is "From the Technical and Cultural Heritage of the Lower Danube Porto-Franco Space to Emerging Technologies" (transparent electronics, e-paper, nanobiotehnologies).
If the present day communication technologies allow access to information “at a finger touch”, thus , contributing to the development of international, cross-institutional and multidisciplinary research, and if "only the sky's the limit" for the communication technology of the future, let's turn multidisciplinarity into interdisciplinarity, transdisciplinarity and crossdisciplinarity to benefit the young scientists of tomorrow.
The conference invites oral and poster presentations in seven concurrent sections related to the main domains of doctoral research at UDJG. Workshops, exhibition stands and social activities are also included in the programme, all with the aim of developing and improving the network of the doctoral schools in the European space. Organized with the participation of IPA Galati, it will also provide PhD students with the opportunity to meet members of the local and national socio-economic and cultural communities.
One more event, dedicated to young researchers, including high school students from Galati, will be held simultaneously, under Section 3, the "UGALnano5" Symposium, organized by the Center for Nanostructures and Functional Materials (CNMF) of the Faculty of Engineering.
