We are pleased to announce the upcoming National Ph.D. Meeting that will be held at the Grand Hotel Salerno on 22-24 March 2018.

The National Ph.D. meeting aims to give Ph.D. students a chance to present their research in a friendly and stimulating atmosphere. The programme includes oral communications and thematic poster sessions from selected abstracts, two keynote

lectures delivered by Pier Giuseppe Pelicci and Luigi Naldini from Milan, and a lecture on emerging technologies sponsored by Leica entitled "Super Resolution & Nanoscopy - push the limit of diffraction playing with light".

As it has become a hallmark of these meetings, students play a fundamental role in the meeting organization. The Ph.D. student committee will be fully responsible for the selection of oral communications from the submitted abstracts and for chairing all sessions.

Registrations and abstract submissions are accepted exclusively through the website starting from 10 of January 2018 and will be possible until 16 February 2018.

ABCD and SIBBM members will benefit from reduced registration fees. Remember to be an early bird to benefit from discounted prices! Details about the different registration fees can be found on the information page.

We will be able to award travel grants, covering the registration fee, to a good number of participants. To be eligible, the following conditions must be met:

  • be a member or a junior member of the ABCD or of the SIBBM
  • be less than 35 years old at the start of the meeting.

You may apply for the travel grant during the registration procedure. The number of travel grants assigned will depend on the number of requests.

Of note, the best oral communication will be awarded the Luca Daveggio prize (1.000 €) thanks to the generous donation by Luca’s parents, who will attend the award ceremony. Prizes are also envisaged for the best posters displayed and discussed

during the meeting.

We hope that you and your students will join us in large numbers to ensure a productive exchange of ideas and a lively interaction among the participants.

We look forward to seeing you in Salerno!
