Young Investigators Conference – Open Call for 2019

The European Community on Computational Method in Applied Sciences (ECCOMAS) invites institutions from all over Europe to present proposals for the organization of the 5th Young Investigators Conference (YIC), to be held between April and September, 2019.

Previous Young Investigators Conferences took place at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, (2012), Bordeaux, France (2013) and in Aachen, Germany (July 2015). In September 2017 the YIC takes place at the Polytechnic University of Milan (Italy). Since 2013 the Young Investigators Conferences are offered on a two-year interval in odd years in geographically varying areas. The conferences are organized and run by young investigators and supported by senior scientists. The target groups are PhD students in all stages of their PhD programs, postdocs and young researchers, under the age of 35.

In conjunction with the 5th Young Investigators Conference in 2019 the ECCOMAS PhD Olympiad 2019 has to be organized. For more details with respect to ECCOMAS Olympiads see .

Institutions interested in organizing YIC 2019 are kindly requested to submit a proposal to the ECCOMAS Secretariat () before March 15, 2017 .

Proposals must include the following information:
– Conference Chairperson(s)

It is planned that a financial support will be given by ECCOMAS. The proposals will be considered in a meeting of the Managing Board of ECCOMAS in May 2017.
