  • About

    We are pleased to announce the DOC-FAM School on Functional Advanced Materials for Emerging Applications, organized by ICMAB, CSIC, in the framework of the Doctoral Training Programme in Functional Advanced Materials (DOC-FAM) project (H2020-MSCA-COFUND-2016).

    The school counts with plenary lectures of International experts in the field of advanced materials to give young researchers and students a worldwide view of the diferent and emerging applications in electronics, energy and nanomedicine.

    Beyond the plenary lectures, the school will include technical talks, direct interactions with the lecturers, talks from the DOC-FAM fellows and poster presentations.

    The school will be online, but there will be some interactive sessions and activities to encourage the networking and the interaction between participants and lecturers.

    The school will be broadcast online and is open to registration from interested young researcher from around the world, although attendance is limitted to 85 participants.

    We do not tolerate any type of conduct or behavior considered harassment or bullying.

    Hybrid conference: online talks, and poster session at ICMAB

    The DOC-FAM school is organized by the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB, CSIC) and will be held online, although the poster session on Thursday afternoon, will be at the ICMAB premises.

    Online talks

    The organizers will send the link to attend the school to the lecturers and participants by mail during the week of 21-27 June 2021.

    The platform used will be Zoom. We ask you to make sure that the Zoom platform works in your PC before the school, including microphone and camera. You can download the platform from zoom.us

    We ask participants to remain with the microphone muted during the lectures and talks. However, they can open it during the questions time. The chat can also be used to ask questions, and will be a tool used for the organizers to give some information or announcements during the school. 

    The sessions will be recorded and will be available to attendees after the school. However, we encourage you to attend the sessions in live in order to interact with the speakers and participants and ask questions.

    Poster session

    As mentioned above, the poster session on Thursday (1 July 202) afternoon will take place at the ICMAB premises (outdoors).

    A maximum of 20 posters will be accepted. The organization will ensure to follow all the recommended safety measures (controlling the capacity, ensuring social distance, providing hydroalcoholic gel…).

    In addition, we recommend that only local participants ask to present a poster. Participants can do so at the registration form, before 6 June 2021. We will confirm the acceptance of the poster session by 14 June 2021.

    The ICMAB is located at the UAB Campus (Carrer dels Til·lers s/n).
