Student Grants

The SMCTSM actively promotes the participation of students in our annual meeting so they could benefit from the opportunity to interact with experienced researchers who are presenting the advances of their research. At the plenary talks the students have a unique opportunity occasion to grasp the status and the perspectives of trending topics directly from leading scientists. Students participating in our meeting also have a chance to learn or reinforce valuable knowledge with selected short courses.

By supporting the participation of students in the activities of the SMCTSM we are not only contributing to their academic formation but also we are planting the seed for a new generation of researches and scientists that will push the borders of science for the benefit of our society.
