Doctoriales DS4H 2023

A day to encourage informal exchanges, the sharing of ideas and the breaking down of scientific barriers between doctoral students at DS4H Graduate school.

EUR Digital Systems for Humans was proud to host its 1st Doctoral Day on Thursday, June 22nd!

A day dedicated to doctoral students within the EUR, focused on interdisciplinary exchanges and camaraderie, taking place at the SophiaTech Campus of the Université Côte d'Azur, dedicated to innovation and new technologies.

The program included:

  • Pitching their thesis to non-specialists to gain a different perspective on their work
The two sessions of scientific speed dating were highly acclaimed by the doctoral students. The exercise involved presenting their ongoing thesis work to non-specialists, aiming to convey their passion, provoke questions, and perhaps even evolve their own viewpoint on their research. Every 10 minutes, signaled by Gilles Bernot, Deputy Director of Pedagogy at the EUR, the presenters were encouraged to switch audiences! Thanks to the Learning Centre for hosting this joyful and lively moment.
  • Projecting into the future with the roundtable on life after the thesis
Another highlight of the day was the roundtable discussion titled "A PhD... and after?" where Anne-Laure Simonelli, Head of Innovative Pedagogies at the EUR, was joined by Fabien Ferrero (researcher at LEAT), Lucile Sassatelli (Professor at Université Côte d'Azur and junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France), and Antonia Machlouzarides-Shalit (researcher and entrepreneur in the field of AI applied to neuroscience). It was an informal and highly appreciated sharing of experiences.
  • Reflecting together on a more sustainable digital future with the Digital Fresco
After lunch, the doctoral students participated in the "Fresque du Numérique" (Digital Fresco), a team-based "serious game" to understand the environmental challenges of the digital world. It is worth noting that several doctoral students are specifically working on inventing networks and connected devices that are less resource-intensive to address these challenges.

Thanks to all the participants and speakers for the richness of the exchanges throughout the day, which fostered the growth of ideas, friendships, and projects. Special thanks to the student associations involved, ADSTIC and ADAMS.

While awaiting the aftermovie, here is a selection of photos from this wonderful day:
