9th Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate
School Students' Conference + Young researchers day
April 19th - April 20th, 2017
Ljubljana, Slovenia


The 9th IPS Student Conference is approaching. This year’s conference combines two traditional students’ conferences: (1) The IPS Students’ Conference and the (2) Young Researchers' Day of chemistry, materials, biochemistry and environment (CMBE) at the Jožef Stefan Institute. With the success of last year's format the Student Council would like to announce that we are planning to again organize workshops on public speaking as part of the conference. Knowing the elements of public speaking enables you to make a convincing presentation which leaves a good first impression. These skills come in handy in situations when you need to give a speech or a statement in front of a public, present your ideas, or when you are invited to a job interview.

We invite all students to contribute paper and poster on their research for the 8th International Postgraduate School Student Conference, IPSSC'16, which will take place at Jožef Stefan Institute, April 19th - April 20st, 2017. The invitations to the conference are available in English and Slovene.

What is it all about?

The purpose of the conference is to establish contacts between students and enterprises, to make the students aware of the needs and methods of development in the industry and the service sector as well as to offer the representatives of the enterprises information and direct contact with the research and potential candidates.

How can I participate?

You will present your research work to other students, colleagues and representatives from industry with:

  • abstract in A4 format, reviewed by your mentor if possible;
  • poster in A1 format, which must include a scientific research overview, a brief assessment of potential use, as well as a brief overview of the essence and importance of research to the widest understanding;
  • 3 minutes long oral presentation(so-called elevator pitch), in which students should present their research work in an understandable and interesting way.
More information about preparing both can be read in the call for papers.
