The Doctorials of December 2018
The Doctoral College is planning to organize Doctorials for one or two days in December 2018. These days will be dedicated to PhD students, including those working in joint supervision and directorship of their thesis, in the middle or towards the end of their postgraduate studies, as they will be able to submit their scientific research in part as papers, or to report on the progress of their work.

The Doctorials simultaneously allow for adhering to the Lebanese ministerial decree, which governs PhD studies and which sets the publication of two scientific works as one of the conditions to earn a PhD. The contributions, no longer than 20 minutes, will take the shape of successive thematic sessions followed by debates. The papers of PhD students will be published within the Proceedings of Doctorials 2018-2019 by PUSEK Publications.

PhD students will be able, during these days, to display posters representing their scientific works, a soft copy of which should be sent to the administration of the Doctoral College for publication.

The Doctorials will entail a three-credit registration. PhD students who wish to register are required to send an abstract of their proposed paper to Mrs. Mireille Bassil-Gebran (administration of the Doctoral College by Friday July 27, 2018 at the latest. The abstract is to be accompanied by the subject of the thesis, the name of the scientific director concerned, the unit to which the PhD student is affiliated and the date of first registration in the postgraduate studies program.

An e-mail will be sent to students on Wednesday August 8, 2018 to inform them if their presentation has been approved by the scientific committee of the Doctoral College. PhD students whose papers are chosen should send an e-mail to the same address by Monday October 15, 2018 at the latest, providing the full text of their contribution for scheduled publication.

The Doctorials encourage the registration of PhD students from outside USEK who are urged to complete the Quick-Admit procedure with the USEK Admission office.
