2nd Global Young Investigator Forum



The Global Young Investigators Forum aims to facilitate scientific discussions
among young researchers and exchange of ideas essential to identify emerging
global challenges at the interface of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine,
material research and engineering. Young researches below 35 years of age are
invited to join this event to share and discuss their recent results in form of brief
presentations, which will be followed by discussions. This forum will help to
establish global cooperation and networks among young scientists to approach
future challenges in ceramic science and technology. This interdisciplinary
workshop will cover, but is not limited to the following thematic areas.


Proposed Session Topics

  • Frontiers in ceramic chemistry and physics: new precursors for functional ceramics; ceramics and catalysis, functional surfaces
  • Ceramic hybrid materials and composites: ceramic matrix composites, biological and medical applications
  • Ceramic processing and application: novel processing and synthesis routes
  • Applications: ceramic sensors and actuators, energy generation and storage, photo-catalysis
  • Young researchers’ mobility and networks


Session Organizers

  • Fernando Torres Andón, Karolinska Institute, Sweden
  • Thomas Fischer, University of Cologne, Germany
  • Seyedeh Mahboobeh Hosseini, University of California at Davis, USA
  • Karra Raveendran Girish Karthik, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
  • Thomas Krause, University of Bremen, Germany
  • Joaquin Ramírez Rico, University of Seville, Spain
