The second SELECTA Workshop entitled “Training on research methodologies, characterization techniques and reporting scientific results” will be held on 6-10 March 2016 at IFW (Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research), Dresden. The 15 ESRs of the network will present their project progress and they will attend to several lectures, as part of their compulsory training. The main scientific topics of the seminars will be: (i) structural characterization: diffraction/imaging techniques, (ii) Mechanical behavior of electrodeposited films and micro/nanostructures, (iii) Corrosion and wear resistance of electrodeposited metallic coatings, (iv) Tribocorrosion and (v) Nanomagnetism and spintronic devices. In addition training on “effective oral presentations” will also be provided to the ESRs, as part of their compulsory training in soft skills. Please, find attached information regarding registration, fees, hotel booking and the agenda of the event.
