Young Researcher Symposium

By and for students
Starting with the 2018 edition, the Girona Seminars will have a Young Researchers Symposium on the day before the main conference begins.
This event is organized by and for PhD students, and gives them the opportunity to show their research to their peers and to the participants of the main event.
Organizers
Margarida Borrell, Lorenzo D'Amore, Lorena Capdevila, Steven Roldán, Carla Magallón, Adrià Romero
#YRS18 Prizes
There will be two prizes for the best talks given at the YRS:
  • one award/prize for a theoretically oriented contribution
  • one award/prize for an experimentally oriented contribution
