ThesisDay@SystemX: our PhD students present their research!

PhD students from SystemX and VEDECOM invite you to (re)discover their PhD work on March 21 2018, at 1.30 pm at Nano-INNOV (Palaiseau)!

Autonomous vehicles, digital simulation, multimodal transportation, cybersecurity, Smart City, mobility, energy, blockchain… all these topics will be raised at the second edition of ThesisDay@SystemX.

This event, organized in partnership with Agent Majeur and ITE VEDECOM, will be marked by three important highlights

  • A panel session on the following topic: “Doctorate: synergy between academics and IRT & ITE in R&D projects”.
  • 11 PhD students from SystemX and VEDECOM will then have “3 minutes to convince you”: inspired by the “My thesis in 180 seconds” competition, this session will feature 11 PhD students in succession, presenting their thesis subject in only 3 minutes. Two prizes will be awarded to the winners: the jury prize and the prize from the public. You are all welcome to come, encourage and vote for them!
  • Finally, some 30 young researchers will display their posters and present their respective thesis subjects. A further prize will be awarded for the best poster.
