Cutting Edge 2017
Applications for active participants are closed.
Pasive attendees are still welcome to apply
(see below).

Once again, the Cutting Edge conference will bring together young and established researchers to discuss the topics in three main sections:


We are thrilled to announce our three invited speakers:
dr. Andrej Grubišič, Slovene scientist at NASA
prof. András Perczel, Eötvös Loránd University from Budapest
prof. Mirco Bundschuh, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala

WHEN? Tuesday, 19. 9. 2017

WHERE? Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana, Večna pot 113, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia

WHO? Bacchelor students, Master students, PhD students and Post-docs (finished PhD in 2013 or later), who work in the field of any of the three topics the conference covers, are welcome to actively participate, to present their work as an oral presentation or with a poster. All the rest, welcome to join us as passive participants!

WHY? Oh, we do not even know where to start!
• We aim to enable young scientists a possibility to present their research to their peers, to discuss the results and to entangle the scientific problems from various perspectives.
• This year we made a special collaboration with Acta Chimica Slovenica, enabling young authors to submit and publish their own scientific article. The ones chosen for the publication will present their work as oral presentations.
• Since we know how expensive the registration fees can be, we will keep them at a symbolic price for all the participants this year as well.
• We will bring to you the possibility to listen to lectures from three established researchers and discuss your work with professors.
• There will be chocolate chip cookies.

HOW?  Applications for oral and poster presentations are closed. Passive attendence registration is still available on the following link. Deadline for registration is by the end of August. Fees for passive participants are the same as for active ones and should be also finalized by the end of August. Applicants for oral presentations will get notified about their acceptance by the end of August. The registration fee is 10 € for students and 35 € for other participants and should be finalised by the 1st of August 2017 by wire transfer to the following account (for purpuse of payment, please include the name and surname of the participant):

And don’t forget to tell all your friends and colleauges about it. Even those from abroad, since the event will be in english.

P.S.: HAVE SOME LAB SELFIES? Since the answer in an obvious YES, we invite you to share them with us! Even if they are not true selfies, but photos taken by other people (yes, you should never be alone in a lab). Post them to our Facebook event page with a hashtag #cutting2017. The photos are collected until the 1st of September 2017. The best ones will be printed out and exhibited at the Cutting Edge 2017 conference for the final competition. All attendees of the conference will vote for the best one and the winner will receive a very special prize!

Best of luck with your research and see you in September 2017!
