21st-22nd October, 2013

The International PhD & DLA Symposium is organized because it is thought that PhD & DLA students in engineering, architecture and information technology areas need a special forum in addition to their PhD & DLA programmes to present the results of their ongoing research. The past International PhD Symposia were organized between 2005-2012 and it will be important to continue this tradition.
Objectives of the PhD Symposium

  • to provide a forum for PhD & DLA students in engineering, architectural and information technology areas to present the progress of their work,
  • to discuss the results of the ongoing PhD & DLA studies in order to support the future activity,
  • to give the opportunity for PhD & DLA students to establish contact for international communication,
  • to compare PhD & DLA studies in various countries.


The Conference venue is the Pollack Mihály Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University of Pecs.

The University is one of the largest and oldest Universities in Hungary. The address of the Faculty: University of Pecs, Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology 7624, Boszorkány 2., Pécs, Hungary.
