[ACADEMIC EVENT] 11th Science Week for the Manutech-SLEIGHT Graduate School of Research

From January 8, 2024 to January 12, 2024

From January 8 to 12, 2024, the Manutech-SLEIGHT Graduate School of Research will hold its 11th interdisciplinary week (the SLEIGHT Science Event) on the Manufacture campus at the Université Jean Monnet in Saint-Étienne.

This new winter edition will focus on all the topics covered by the Graduate School and will bring together students and researchers from the Manutech-SLEIGHT community.

The rich, week-long program will include:

Presentations by four internationally renowned speakers on various Manutech-SLEIGHT topics:

  • Vincent Motto-Ros (Institut Lumière-Matière – UCBL, CNRS) on LIBS imaging for materials and biomedical science;
  • Albert Stolow (Canada Research Chair in Molecular Photonics, University of Ottawa & National Research Council – Canada) on nonlinear coherent Raman microscopy;
  • Marie-Emmanuelle Couprie (Synchrotron SOLEIL – CEA, CNRS) on free-electron lasers;
  • Milos Burger (Center for Ultrafast Optical Science, University of Michigan, United States), Guest Researcher at the Laboratoire Hubert Curien, on the development of 3-PW sources for high-field scientific research.

One thesis presentation: Rehan Jhuboo, a PhD student at the Laboratoire Hubert Curien (UJM, CNRS, IOGS) will present his research on the MALBOT (MAchine Learning for high definition BOne digital Twin) project on Wednesday, January 10.

Three workshops, organized by Manutech-SLEIGHT’s scientific departments on the Thursday and Friday, featuring presentations of research projects. These workshops are the perfect opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas on current and future projects and to forge new collaborations.

A “Pitch” session on Monday, January 8 and Tuesday, January 9, during which 30 Master’s students will be invited to give a short, dynamic presentation of their internship or individual project. Over the years, this session has become the students’ favorite event!

A “Poster”presentation session, organized in a fun & friendly format, on Tuesday January 9. All members of the Graduate School (Master’s students, PhD students, researchers, engineers...) are invited to take part and present their poster.

The Manutech-SLEIGHT Student Chapter, led by the Student Association, will also organize an activity open to all Manutech-SLEIGHT students during the Poster Session.

This week of scientific excellence, networking, interactions and new discoveries will conclude with an awards ceremony for the best presentations (from the Pitch and Poster sessions) on January 12 at noon.
