The Ph.D. School "Italo Gorini 2019" 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. 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, 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), Naples (2019), Reggio Calabria (2020).
The PhD School "Italo Gorini 2019" 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) Naples: Measurements for characterization of components and systems (RA4-Arpaia), Measurement signals and data (RA2-Narduzzi);
- 3rd year (2020) Reggio Calabria: Sensors and transducers for measurement (RA6-Andò), Fundamentals of measurement and metrology (RA1-Giaquinto).
Lectures delived at Ph.D. School "Italo Gorini 2019" will be given as MOOC in the Federica Web Learning platform.
Federica is one of the leaders in open-access course production and delivery in Europe, hosting over 300 blended courses and 150 MOOCs (with more in the pipeline) on its two platforms, and a growing portfolio of courses on the edX platform. Hallmarks of the Federica vision are: research-based; curricular courses + opportunities for blended and mixed mode delivery; quality content and standardised format; interface design and adaptive technology; electronic Alexandria – guided access to authoritative + preferably open, sources on the Web; Openness – as the Italian university system is public, Federica courses are offered free of charge.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The school is aimed at Ph.D. students and young researchers in any of the Engineering or scientific disciplines.
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.
Naples is located halfway between two volcanic areas, the volcano Mount Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields.The city is noted for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy and, in the modern day, the historic centre of the city is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The metropolitan area of Naples is the second most populated in Italy and one of the largest in all of Europe with around 3.8 million people.
The whole history of Naples is based on the concept of welcoming foreigners and of different cultures living side by side. The city's enviable geographical position half-way down the Italian coast makes it easy to reach from anywhere in the world.
