    The consortium will be an opportunity to:
  • Present a work in advance and exchange ideas with other PhD students having similar research problems,
  • Have feedbacks and advices from more experimented researchers,
  • Construct new links with other researchers for further rich and fruitful experiences exchange.
This consortium is essentially intended for PhD students who have already identified their research topic and have some advances in their work, but not yet close to finishing their thesis.

    The papers should clearly specify:
  • The organization where the student is doing his/her work including name of supervisors
  • The research question addressed and the motivation of the work
