Logo del I seminario YOUMAT

On April 27, 2023, the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM), CSIC, is hosting its I Seminar for Young Materials Researchers (YOUMAT23). The event is taking place in the ICMM Assembly Hall, from 8.30 AM to 6 PM.

The aim of this meeting is to promote communication and interaction between young people who are starting research in the area of ​​Materials Science, as well as to create a space in which these young people from our centre can discuss the results of their work with senior staff. In addition, it is intended that young students from Madrid universities can attend so that they can get to know the ICMM, so that they can consider it among their options to develop their end-of-degree, master's degree projects, or carry out their doctoral thesis.

The oral communications will be held in English and will last 15 minutes (12 for exposition + 3 for discussion)

The scientific posters must be 90 x 120 cm. The candidates will bring them themselves. They will be exhibited in the hall of the centre during the day and will be presented during coffee breaks.


There will be four prizes: one for the best communication for each line of research (three) and another for the best poster. A diploma will be delivered and an interview will be held with the four winners. This interview will be disseminated in the ICMM media (web, television at the centre, social networks) and the sector's media and will serve as a cover letter for the researcher in their career.

Public registration

Attendance is free but requires registration in order to book coffee and beers. Any person from the academic community of both the CSIC and University can register at this link*

*Registration includes free breakfast for those who attend the event.

**All the people who participate will receive their supporting certificate. Attendance roll will be passed.
