Description
An ICTP - WE Heraeus Meeting

This conference aims for global community building, international cooperation and scientific discussions across continents around large-scale research infrastructures.

Scientifically it emphasizes on energy research (e.g. photovoltaics, chemical energy conversion, energy storage) representing one of the most pressing global problems. We will cover scientific infrastructures and possibilities offered at synchrotrons which can act as crystallization seeds for global collaboration - the second focus of the conference. Access to large-scale infrastructures, remote experiments and modern opportunities by digitalization, AI and automated experiments will be discussed before the conference is rounded up by hands-on remote experiments.

Topics:
  • Sustainable Energy Supply
  • Chemical Energy Conversion
  • Energy Storage
  • Synchrotron Radiation Sources and Methods
  • The Role of Large-Scale Research Infrastructures and Global Collaboration
  • Digitalization and Open Science
  • Access and Remote Access
  • Hands-on Training

Invited for application are:

  • PhD students with proven academic background and necessary qualifications
  • Postdoctoral researchers and early career researchers in their first 5 years after PhD
All applications will be evaluated by a committee. The nomination of applicants will be based on their academic accomplishments, experience in research and education, as well as taking gender and regional balance into account.

Call for Contributed Abstracts: All applicants are encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster presentation. Abstract templates are available below for download.

The conference is co-funded by the WE Heraeus Foundation, Germany.

Grants: The WE Heraeus Foundation and ICTP offer up to 50 full scholarships (travel, lodging, full board) for PhD students, young postdoctoral researchers, and early career scientists to attend the conference. In principle, the conference is open to the global science community. We particularly encourage early career scientists from Southeast and Central Asia, Africa, and Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean.
There is no registration fee.
