The biannual JR EUROMAT conference, organized by FEMS, is addressed to young material scientists and engineers (Master and PhD students, and post-docs). The aim is to offer the students a first international experience to present their research works and develop their communicative skills with other scientists. The 13th edition will be hosted by Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausanne from 10th to 14th of July 2016 in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The Spanish Material Society, Sociemat, organized a poster competition with two inscriptions to the JR EUROMAT 2016 conference as awards. The requirements were to submit a poster that has already been presented in an International Conference during 2015, one of the authors to be less than 28 years old, and another one to be an active member of Sociemat.
Amaya García and Julia Ureña, PhD students of the Powder Technology Group (GTP) at the University Carlos III de Madrid, were awarded for the following posters:
