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.
Practicals 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 2-4h. 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. On the average, two to three practicals may be attended by each participant. Below is a list of practicals secured so far. The list will be updated on a regular basis.
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 ESM2015.
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 questions raised in 2015.
We encourage participants to bring posters to present their work. Students are asked to present their poster in a one-slide-two-minutes presentation as an exercice to summarize their work.
