Come and join us at this two-day event!
We at the Student's Council want this conference to be a social event that will remain in our best memories, but we are also aware of the importance of acquiring additional skills throughout our studies. That is why this years conference programme will be a little different. We are positive that the 8th IPS students' conference will be interesting as well as informative, because additionally to the presentations of the research work of young researchers, intended for a broader audience, workshops will also be held on public speaking and non-verbal communication, as well as a workshop on preparing a memorable speech. We will also be joined by four companies that will share their key to success and how to transfer your idea into practice.
For those of you who are considering postgraduate studies, this will be a great opportunity to meet potential coworkers and friends, and get acquainted with the research work that is carried out here at the Jožef Stefan Institute. You will also be able to connect with potential supervisors who will be able to present you the postgraduate studies and research work in a relaxed atmosphere.
So come and join us at this two-day event!
