2023 PhD Scientific Day

Science and Engineering of Materials, Interfaces and Nanostructures

We are pleased to announce that the next edition of the PhD students' Scientific Day of the EDT-MAIN co-organized with NanoWal will be held on Tuesday January 31 at the UNamur.

EDT-MAIN PhD Scientific Day / NanoWal annual meeting
UNamur, Tuesday 31 January 2023

The EDT-MAIN 2023 PhD students' Scientific Day is co-organized with the Wallonia Network for Nanotechnologies (NanoWal).

This Scientific Day aims to give the opportunity to PhD students to present and share their most recent work with the MAIN scientific community active in the field of nanomaterials, nanosciences and nanotechnologies.

5 slots for talks (15+5 min) and 10 for flash presentations (2 min) will be available for EDT-MAIN PhD students. In addition, poster sessions (open to all) will be organized during the coffee breaks and lunch time.

Important dates


November 30 : Deadline to submit an abstract

December 19 : Notification to accepted authors

January : Final programme available

January 15 : Deadline to register

The program will include 4 keynote lectures on different research areas:

Carmela Aprile (Université de Namur) on " Silica-based nanostructured catalysts for the efficient valorization of biomass derivatives "
Frédéric Castet (Institut des Sciences Moléculaires, Bordeaux) on " Dynamic effects in calculations of second-order NLO properties of organic molecules in complex environments "
Jean-Luc Duvail (Université de Nantes) on " Design of nanowires for tuning and improving nanophotonic and plasmonic properties "
Marie-Liesse Doublet (Institut Charles Gerhardt, Montpellier) on " Computational Methods and Tools to Tackle the Societal Challenge of Electrochemical Energy Storage "
