IYSF programme

The full programme will be available in June. But beforehand you can find here information about the special sessions which are planned for IYSF.

SciCom panel

Science sparks wonder and enthusiasm about the world. It provides answers and explanations, but more often it gives rise to more questions. How can we communicate science reliable and easy to understand? The panel discussion looks at different forms of science communication in old and new media, how to engage the public and if we all should start our own blog now.

Meet the expert

How to shape your scientific career? How to finish your first paper? Where to go for a postdoc position? What meeting is relevant for me?

These and other questions are relevant for young researchers. Take the opportunity to discuss your burning questions and make an appointment with one of our experts during the poster session in Salzburg.

  • What are the emerging topics in our field?

  • Have we adequately addressed all types of materials?

  • What are new/ emerging materials?

  • What about real exposures, co-exposure scenarios, mixtures?

  • Why is it so difficult to translate scientific research findings into real applications?

  • Why does it take so long to translate research findings into regulatory guidelines?

..and many more

Interactive Mixed Team Challenge 
Chair: Andrea Haase, German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), Berlin/D

This session will give you the opportunity to engage in teamwork and to cooperate in mixed, international teams. Together with your team members you will first need to agree on an idea for an own little research project. The next goal will be to develop your idea in more detail in your team. You will need to answer the following questions: What is the problem that your research project is going to solve/ to address? What steps (e.g. which techniques/models) you need to consider for solving this problem. Do you have all resources in your team that are needed to solve this problem or would need any additional skills/ knowledge? Why is your approach unique/ original? The presentation of the concept will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  1. Originality of the research idea

  2. Relevance of the idea

  3. Technical/ Scientifically Soundness of the approach

  4. Presentation Skills 

The best team will be awarded.

18:00-19:00

Poster Session I
Chairs: Martin Himly, University of Salzburg/A & Iseult Lynch, Birmingham/UK
