In the past, the PhD Days have been organized each year by the
Association des Doctorants et Docteurs des Ecoles Doctorales PSIME
et MIIS sur les sites universitaires de Rouen et le Havre)
with the financial support of the
former SPMII doctoral school from the
region Haute-Normandie. This event took place upon one day from year
to year either in Saint-Etienne du Rouvray, Technopole du Madrillet,
Université de Rouen Normandie, or in Le Havre, Université Le Havre
Normandie. Therefore, the archives on this website are related to
the previous PhD Days organized from the former SPMII doctoral school.
association (Organisation Pour les DocTorants Interdisciplinaires
de Caen), represents the PhD students from the PSIME and MIIS doctoral
schools, as qoted above, as well as the NBISE doctoral school
(Biologie Intégrative, Santé, Environnement), The association have
also organized a similar days twice a year, in the past few years.
Those days took place in Caen for the PhD students from the
SIMEM doctoral school(the PhD students from
Cherbourg were also concerned).
The big innovation of 2017 is to gather both
doctoral schools (PSIME and MIIS), as well as the four sites
(Rouen-Caen-Le Havre-Cherbourg) on one event taking
place on two days : PhD Days of PSIME & MIIS
. The gathering comes from the fusion and splitting of the SPMII and
SIMEM doctoral schools (related to the creation of the ComUE Normandie
Université), which correspond now to the regional doctoral schools:
PSIME and MIIS.
The PhD Days are now organized by the associations
OPTIC and are
sponsored by the PSIME and MIIS doctoral schools.
As from the previous years, the event will take place alternatively on each
site, from year to year.
This event gives the opportunity to all the PhD students to present their
work in an academic fashion for public audience through
A round table is also organized. Generally, it involves
themes about employment which allows a prolific exchange between companies,
researchers, and post-doctoral fellows. Finally, a cocktail
is proposed during which a poster prize and four oral presentation
prizes are awarded in the four main disciplines of the Doctoral
School (Physics, Engineer Science, Mathematics, and Science of
Technologies of Information and Communication). In the last years,
the poster prize was 100€, and the oral presentation prizes were 200€
for each discipline with 1/3 of the PhD students from the SPMII doctoral
school. We hope a similar, and even a higher, number of students from
the new PSIME and MIIS doctoral schools.
This occasion is presented as an excellent exercise for the science
vulgarization of PhD students in front of a non-related scientific public.
This event can also be added to the PhD student resume. Also, it is
considered as a training for job interviews.
A call for papers/posters is usually sent between January-February through
the diffusion mailing list of the doctoral schools. A detailed plan is sent
to PhD students when the registration is closed. Furthermore, each year
the JDD is organized by and for the PhD students.
If you intend to organize this event with other PhD students of the
Doctoral Schools PSIME/MIIS, please contact us
