Weekly Seminar: Statistical methods in global climate change research (28/10 - 9/12/2022)

This online seminar aims to provide an in-depth insight into advanced statistical methods in global climate change research and how these methods can be applied. 
 

Summer school: Identity and contested memory construction of migrant/diasporic communities in the Mediterranean

This 5-day summer school aims to provide innovative strategies to address the current dimensions of inequity in the Mediterranean. It will focus on research in the spheres of urban vs. rural social realities such as linguistic and cultural expressions, unequal laws for women in religiously based/influenced legal systems, and the movement of people – migration and intercultural contact as a timeless phenomenon.

We invite students (M.A. and PhD level) of various disciplines: Sociology, Cultural & Social Anthropology, Law, Political Science, Language and Literary Studies, Area Studies, History etc.

Conference and workshop: "Open and closed societies: historical reasons and modern consequences of inequality in Japan and Europe" (13-14 October 2022)

The University of Tartu Asia Centre is organising a conference titled “Open and closed societies: historical reasons and modern consequences of inequality in Japan and Europe". The interactive conference takes place on the 13th and 14th of October in Tartu, Estonia. The conference aims to focus on inequality in education and the labor market. It does that from the perspective of immigration and socially vulnerable groups of minorities and non-citizens by the example of Japan and the countries of the European Union. The conference invites individual presentations that deal with the beforementioned topics, especially presentations of PhD students. 

Course "Designing and Building a Critical State of the Art (SoA) for Research" (April/May/June 2022)

In collaboration with Euskampus

The foundation of all good research is a well designed, well built, and well maintained Critical State of the Art (SoA). This is usually the first major task as a doctoral student, and one that researchers will continue to need to work on throughout their doctoral studies, and perhaps beyond. How good the Critical State of the Art is will determine the quality of the research, and thus how successful and worthwhile the doctoral research will be.

ENLIGHT doctoral students’ virtual workshop on equity and sustainability at the University of Tartu

From 14 February to 18 February, University of Tartu organized an interdisciplinary proposal-writing workshop entitled “Equity and Sustainability”. The workshop took place in the framework of the ENLIGHT project and brought together 33 doctoral students from nine universities via zoom.

ENLIGHT Interdisciplinary Proposal-Writing Workshop Equity and Sustainability (Tartu, 14-18 Febr 2022)

The workshop provides a platform for cross-disciplinary collaboration for the researchers and PhD students of ENLIGHT network universities. The participants are invited to collectively look for solutions to the challenges indicated by the  anchor topic “Equity and Sustainability".
 
 

NUI Galway to host 11th European Solid Mechanics Conference (ESMC2022) in July 2022

The European Solid Mechanics Conference is the major event for the solid mechanics community in Europe, and provides a unique forum for scientists and engineers from Europe and across the world to exchange ideas on the current state-of-the-art in the mechanics of solids, on new concepts and ideas and to identify new research directions. The 11th European Solid Mechanics Conference will be held at NUI Galway, Ireland, 4th – 8th July, 2022 (ESMC2022). The conference is being held under the auspices of the European Mechanics Society (EUROMECH).

Solid mechanics is the bedrock of engineering design in areas such as mechanical engineering, civil and structural engineering, and biomedical engineering. It is a critically important element in the design and development of almost all technologies and products in these areas, such as aircraft, automobiles, buildings, bridges, and medical implants and devices. Further, solid mechanics is a key enabler in the development of new technologies that address the major global challenges of our time in sustainability, renewable energy and health.

The organising committee have assembled a truly outstanding group of international invited lecturers for the conference, covering the General Lecture and five Plenary Lectures.

The conference has general sessions and over 50 mini-symposia on a wide range of solid mechanics speciality areas so there should be something for everyone over a wide range of interests in the solid mechanics domain, for abstract submission.

The NUI Galway organising committee would be delighted for the ENLIGHT member institutions to encourage staff, researchers and graduate students in engineering, applied mathematics and physical sciences, and more broadly across the sciences, to submit abstracts to the conference and for them to visit Galway to attend the conference next summer.
