EM Symposia

Once a year the EM Graduate School organizes a two-day Symposium. The EM Symposia are intended for all senior academic staff, PhD students and post-docs participating in the EM Graduate School. The goals of the annual EM Symposia are:
  • To stimulate exchange of information on ongoing research within the EM Graduate School
  • To receive information on the state-of-the art in one of the research areas of the EM Graduate School by a world-famous expert
The program of the Symposium follows a general framework, comprising a keynote lecture by an international expert in the field, special topic sessions devoted to the research themes of the EM Graduate School and two poster sessions in which PhD students participating within the EM Graduate School present their current research project.

In conjunction to the poster session a poster contest is organized in which a jury selects the best three contributions. The contributed posters are published in an information brochure and on the Internet-site of the EM Graduate School.

Starting in the year 2000, the EM Graduate School also organizes an AIO Presentation Contest within the framework of the EM Symposium. A jury consisting of the workshop organizers awards prizes for the best AIO presentation at each of the Symposium workshops.

On 24 October 2017, the Graduate School on Engineering Mechanics celebrated the 20th anniversary of its annual symposium with a Lustrum day. A report of this special event was made:
