The PhD School "Italo Gorini 2018" is the doctoral School promoted by the Italian "Electrical and Electronic Measurement" (GMEE) and "Mechanical and Thermal Measurement" (GMMT) associations.
The School activity will deal with a wide variety of issues related to the measurement, by taking inspiration from practical particle accelerators technologies, but generalized to a wider audience, in an international context. The School is aimed both at PhD students, as well as young people from research and industry fields.
The School will address both methodological issues, in the field of science and technology related to the measures and instrumentation, and advanced problems of practical interest. Special attention will be paid to the impact of measures on scientific and engineering context, strongly influenced by the evolution of technology in various sectors.
From one side the benefits that these technologies can offer to the development of innovative measurement systems is addressed, from the other the new open issues and the innovations introduced by the science of measurement are investigated.
The School will have a weekly duration and will be developed through lectures, seminars, conferences, visits to CERN laboratories and experiments, as well as debates.
The doctoral School "Italo Gorini" is organized in three-year cycles.
The VII Cycle for the years 2018-2020 includes the following venues: Geneva-CERN (2018), Reggio Calabria (2019), Naples-Amalfi coast (2020).
The PhD School "Italo Gorini 2018" aims to enrich the training in the field of Instrumentation and Measurement and to strengthen human relations and scientific cooperation among doctoral students and young researchers.
The school addresses both methodological issues, in the field of science and technology related to the measures and instrumentation, and advanced problems of practical interest.
The School cycle will follow the consolidated rotation cycle of the 6 research lines:
- 1st year (2018) Geneva-CERN: Measurement for quality and innovation management (RA3-Cristaldi), Measuring systems and instrumentation (RA5-Tellini);
- 2nd year (2019) Reggio Calabria: Measurements for characterization of components and systems (RA4-Arpaia), Measurement signals and data (RA2-Narduzzi);
- 3rd year (2020) Naples-Amalfi Coast: Sensors and transducers for measurement (RA6-Andò), Fundamentals of measurement and metrology (RA1-Giaquinto).
Situated between the Geneva Lake and the Swiss-French mountains, the French-speaking city of Geneva is home to the headquarters of numerous international organisations such as the United Nations, the World Health Organisation, the International Labour Office, the International Red Cross and the World Trade Center, among others. Geneva has all the advantages of a small city combined with the facilities and services usually only found in much larger cities.
Geneva's multicultural population offers a platform for frank and constructive communication, and exchange of experiences, allowing the city to be a facilitator of multi- cultural dialogue. The city offers many leisure activities and cultural entertainment, which guarantee a pleasant and relaxing visit (European style) during the congress. Geneva is a great city with a perfect setting, exquisite food and magnificent facilities.
Who should attend?
The school is aimed at Ph.D. students and young researchers in any of the Engineering or scientific disciplines.Register Now
The main emphasis of the Ph.D. School is enriching the training in the field of instrumentation and measurement of doctoral students and young researchers through presentations given by lecturers well quoted among the Italian and international scientific community; promote and consolidate human relations and scientific cooperation among the participants.
The activities can be recognized and quantified in terms of credits. All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
Special Issues on Measurement Science and Technology (MST) Journal
The participants to the Gorini School are invited to submit a scientific paper related to their current PhD research for a Special Issues on Measurement Science and Technology (MST) Journal.
