The 9th European Geothermal PhD Days will be hosted in 2018 by the students from the Geothermal Energy and Geofluids (GEG) group at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH), Switzerland.
The event will take place 14-16 March 2018 on the premises of ETH in Zurich/ Switzerland.
Over the time since its inception, the annual EGPD event has come to be known among PhD students from all over Europe, as a place to present their research and in turn, understand the work being developed by their peers at other universities. The event is organized by PhD students, for PhD students, and is intended to take place in a relaxed and friendly environment. This gives attendees a chance to network with students and academics in order to create and strengthen professional relationships, as well as to practice their presentation skills in a constructive and supportive atmosphere.
The three-day event is usually split into oral presentations and poster sessions during the first two days and an off-campus excursion to a geothermal energy related site on the last day. Sessions in the past have included Resource Assessments, Exploration, Reservoir Engineering and Monitoring, Tool and Code Development, Process Engineering, Sustainability Aspects, Groundwater studies, Geology and Structure Studies, Storage, Supply and Demand Matching, Thermodynamics and many more. All participants must submit an abstract and present their projects (oral presentations or posters) during the conference.
The registration will be opened soon at their website (https://geg.ethz.ch/conferences/egpd/). You can contact the organizers of EGPD 2018 at firstname.lastname@example.org if you should have any questions or need any assistance.
