The event took place this year In Nancy, from June 16th to 18th. We were 19 PhD students and 16 faculties.
All the individual workshops went well and all the PhD students left with new ideas for their research work.
These working sessions were accompanied by very interesting conferences with the participation of Ferran Giones “Building and writing a research contribution, tips and templates “, Kirsten Martin “ Algorithmic Bias and Corporate Responsibility “, Laurent Rollet “Henri Poincaré (1854-1912) : Mathematician, physicist, philosopher, etc.” and Cyrille Imbert “ Computing Good Pseudo-Random Numbers: a Social and Psychological Problem“. These presentations have allowed to have very enriching exchanges.
In order to obtain a family and friendly atmosphere, social moments also took place Bowling:
The NITIM team would like to thank all the participants for their motivation and participation. Thanks to the faculty members for their involvement and advices. Thanks also to the 4 speakers.

We invite PhD candidates to submit proposals for evaluation and we invite faculty members to join our on-line NITIM. The core of the Summer School will be virtual group sessions of 4 PhD candidates and 2 faculty members.
For those who have just started their PhD program, we look forward to receiving a research proposal. For those in their late stage of their Ph.D., you are encouraged to submit a relevant piece for your research (a paper, an overview, or a chapter of your PhD thesis).
The admission to the school will be based on the review of full proposal (or paper), which will form the basis of the discussion and feedback at the Virtual Summer School, is due by May 4th.
Notification of acceptance to the school will be sent by May 25th.
The NITIM Schools facilitate the development of doctoral research in the interdisciplinary field of Networks, Information, Technology and Innovation Management, bringing together PhD candidates and faculty members in a focused, in-depth, and constructive discussion of the candidates’ research work.
Participation in the Virtual Summer School will be free.
After completion of the Summer School and a short learning report to be submitted within 2 weeks after NITIM, PhD candidates can receive a certificate.
