2nd PhD and ECI meeting in Thessaloniki (Greece)

September 9, 2019

Dear EUIMWP participants,

As you may know, the MC approved to postpone the 2nd PhD and ECI meeting until September 9th, 2019, one day before the beginning of the Training School “Emerging technologies for 5G networks”, organised by Dr. Chris Vagionas and his group in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (http://winphos.web.auth.gr/). Both events (2nd PhD and ECI meeting and Training School) will take place, thus, in Thessaloniki, and will be organised by this group.

The tentative agenda for the 2nd PhD and ECI meeting is as follows:

Monday, Sep 9th
09:00 – 09:15 Welcome to PhD and ECI participants by ECI Manager
09:15 – 10:45 PhD and ECI presentations (session I)
10:45 – 11:15 Coffee break
11:15 – 12:45 PhD and ECI presentations (session II)
12:45 – 13:45 Lunch
13:45 – 15:30 Round table I: challenges and solutions
15:30 – 16:00 Coffee break
16:30 – 18:30 Round table II: collaborations

As a reminder, ECI (Early Career Investigator) is defined as an individual who is within a time span of up to 8 years from the date they obtained their PhD/doctorate (full-time equivalent). This call is addressed, thus, to PhD students and ECI participants.

The Action will cover the travel, accommodation and meals expenses of the eligible participants, according to COST rules (please have a look to the COST Vademecum, downloadable here: https://www.cost.eu/cost-actions/cost-actions-networking-tools/).

The participants from IPC (International Partner Countries) are welcomed to apply, but with no possibility of reimbursement. Sorry about this.

For applying, please send an email to Christos Vagionas (chvagion@csd.auth.gr) and Pepa Bayarri (ghmanager.upv@gmail.com) showing your interest in participating in this meeting by providing the following information:
Date of PhD defense (foreseen in case of PhD students):
PhD st / ECI:
Title of Talk:

We may need to ask you for further documents later.

We will consider applications received before August 20th, 2019.

In the case the number of applications exceeded the number of seats, priority would be given to PhD students on their second half of their training period. The Grant Holder reserves their right to make variations in the number of seats according to budget availability.

Please feel free to disseminate this announcement among the PhD students and ECIs in your groups.

Thank you and kind regards,

José Capmany (Chair and Grant Holder)
Pepa Bayarri (Grant Holder Manager)
Chris Vagionas (Local Organiser and ECI Manager)
