Your maths are made for talking!


The Belgian Mathematical Society invites all PhD students linked to mathematic to present a poster or a talk at the PhD-Day. Grab the opportunity to show your research to your fellow PhD students, to meet each other, and exchange ideas.

Every PhD student in mathematics, presenting a poster gets one panel to present a poster in A0 format. At the end of the PhD-Day, there will be the best poster award. The best poster will be selected on the criteria of layout, contents, and clarity of the poster.

We also offer the possibility to present a contributed talk. The scientific committee will make a selection among the proposed abstracts.

After the posterpresentations there will be a job fair. More information can be found here.

The official poster of the PhD-Day can be downloaded here.
