Dear PhD Students,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the Summer School entitled ‘Modern Research Techniques for Physicochemical Characterization of the Potential Application Systems’, which will be held in Lublin, Poland on May 18-20, 2022.

The Summer School for PhD Students is organized by the Faculty of Chemistry of Maria Curie Skłodowska University (MCSU) in Lublin. The aim of the Summer School is to develop the knowledge acquired in the course subjects. PhD students will be provided with an opportunity to participate in lectures delivered by outstanding lecturers, workshops, discussions, as well as to present their research results and achievements in the form of oral and poster presentations. English will be the obligatory language.\

Among the invited lecturers of the Summer School are scientists and experienced academic teachers: Prof. Carlos Bravo-Díaz (University of Vigo), Prof. Mariusz Barczak (Faculty of Chemistry MCSU), Prof. Małgorzata Maciejewska (Faculty of Chemistry MCSU), and Prof. Radosław Zaleski (Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science MCSU).

The lectures will cover modern research techniques, such as:

  • nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR),
  • high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC),
  • coupling technique of infrared spectroscopy with thermogravimetry (TG-IR),
  • differential scanning calorimetry (DSC),
  • molecular modelling,
  • positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS),

and their use for investigations of the systems with a great application potential.

The workshops will be closely related to the topic of the lectures. The PhD students divided into small groups will have the opportunity to participate in all planned workshops.
The meeting of PhD students from different countries and academic centers will ensure the exchange of experiences and good practices in the field of science and research which is the foundation for building international cooperation fostering the implementation of global projects.

Additionally, we would like to emphasize that the Summer School will be conducted in the MCSU facilities with basic architectural, digital, information and communication accessibility. Therefore, individuals with special needs will be able to participate in the Summer School event. We are waiting for applications until March 31, 2022.
