The list of topics for ESM 2019 is complete and lecturers are assigned. Abstracts of presentations will be updated gradually.
Q&A = Questions & Answers session
Poster clip = Short (1 slide, 1-2 min) poster presentation (teaser)
Please note that lectures of Prof. Abelmann require your previous preparation - see the corresponding abstracts [abs1, abs2]. An evidence-based, interactive teaching method - Peer instruction - will be used during these 2 sessions.
Two contributions are scheduled from outside the world of lab research. These are intended to promote thinking about economical, ethical or societal issues, and provide an opportunity to discuss and debate about career opportunities for PhD scientifists beyond their defense. 3 different contributions: side bussiness of a researcher (Evico Magnetics), startup (THATec Innovation), and corporate (ThermoFisher Scientific).
Practical are organized to practice the use of numerical, analytical or experimental techniques, related to topics covered by the lectures. Computers will be provided on-site and readily setup for the practicals.
Each practical is typically 2h or 4h (e.g. experimental ones). Attendees will be asked on-site for their wishes to attend such or such practicals, however, it is not possible to attend all of them. All participants had possibility to attend 3 practicals.
A library consisting of a large set of books dedicated to various aspects of Magnetism is on display during the entire School. Its purpose is first to get students aware of the existing books, get acquainted with their use, and also serve as a support for activities during the School. See the list of books on display at ESM2017.
The purpose of a research School is to provide young scientists with the basics in a working field. With this respect interactivity between students and lecturers should be promoted. Like in the previous editions, a key aspect of this interactivity is the possibility to raise questions at the end as well as during the course of the lectures. Besides, several sessions of questions take place, during which the lecturers or voluntary students present in more detail issues raised by the students during the lectures or anonymously through a question-box. See the list of questions raised in 2019.
We encourage participants to bring posters (A0 portrait) to present their work. Posters will be hanged during coffee breaks and special sessions. Students are asked to present their poster in a one-slide-one-minute (max 2 slides/2min) presentation (poster clips) as an exercice to summarize their work. Please have such slides prepared in an electronic format!
2019: Poster battles intorduced! 6 participants volunteered to be a selection committee and each member nominated one poster. In duels, members were defending the selected poster and explaining their choice. The best poster and "defender" were selected by all participants via an app. All 6 volunteers and 3 best prosters received a valuable prize (external HDD or magnetism-related book). THE best poster receiving fee waiver for JEMS2020 was eventually selected by the ESM lecturers.
