The aim of the International Doctoral Symposium is to provide a forum in which PhD students and PostDoc researchers can present the results of their research work. To reach these goals, the attending PhD students and PostDoc researchers will share their experience and findings through talks, poster sessions and discussions. The symposium also includes trainings focused on career development with lectures on research and functioning skills such as how to develop a good presentation, improve the academic writing and IPR issues.

  • Modeling nitric acid uptake by mineral dust 

    Soussé Villa, Rubén; Jorba Casellas, Oriol; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Mineral dust is amongst the largest contributors to the global aerosol mass load and dominates climate effects over large areas of the Earth. Dust undergoes heterogeneous chemical reactions during transport that increase ...
  • Adaptive optics control with reinforcement learning: first steps 

    Pou Mulet, Bartomeu; Quiñones, Eduardo; Martín Muñoz, Mario (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    When planar wavefronts from distant stars traverse the atmosphere, they become distorted due to the atmosphere’s inhomogeneous temperature distribution. Adaptive Optics (AO) is the field in charge of correcting those ...
  • Lindaview: an OBDA-based tool for self-sufficiency assessment 

    Ortiz Santiago, Víctor Alejandro; Estañol Lamarca, Montserrat; Marinescu, Maria Cristina; Sancho Samsó, María Ribera; Teniente López, Ernest (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Poverty and social exclusion are a reality in every society. They are complex problems that require updated information and access to scattered data sources to make a proper assessment of a person’s situation. To help ...
  • Multiplex network uncovers chronic obstructive pulmonary disease endotypes 

    Olvera, Núria; Faner, Rosa; Valencia, Alfonso (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) was the fourth leading cause of death in the world in 2019, and its burden is projected to increase in coming decades in relation to the aging of the population [1]. COPD is ...
  • Analysis of hybrid genomes in the candida parapsilosis clade 

    del Olmo Toledo, V.; Gabaldón, T. (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The term inter-species hybridisation refers to the crossing of two divergent organisms, leading to a situation where the two parental genomes coexist in the same nuclear compartment. In higher eukaryotes, this scenario ...
  • Sensitivity of soluble iron deposition to soil mineralogy uncertainty 

    Bergas-Massó, Elisa; Gonçalves Ageitos, María; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Mineral dust emitted from arid and semi-arid areas has several effects on the Earth system (e.g., perturbation of the radiative budget, interaction with cloud processes, implications on ocean and land biogeochemical ...
  • Tsunami inundation forecast in central Chile using stochastic earthquake scenarios 

    Zamora, Natalia; Gubler, Alejandra; Catalán, Patricio A.; Carvajal, Matías (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    As demonstrated by recent mega-tsunamis, tsunami coastal inundation could vary substantially as a result of the source characteristics and the local geomorphologic-related- effects. Here, numerical simulations are used ...
  • Pushing the envelope on free TLB prefetching 

    Vavouliotis, Georgios; Álvarez Martí, Lluc; Casas, Marc (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Frequent Translation Lookaside Buffer (TLB) misses pose significant performance and energy overheads due to page walks required for fetching the translations. The address translation performance bottleneck is further ...
  • From comorbidities to gene expression fingerprints and back 

    Urda-García, Beatriz; Valencia, Alfonso (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Epidemiological evidence shows that some diseases tend to co-occur more than expected by chance and that patientspecific trends are observed. However, the molecular processes underlying these phenomena remain unclear. Here ...
  • PerSVade: personalized structural variation detection in your species of interest 

    Schikora-Tamarit, Miquel Àngel; Gabaldón, Toni (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Structural variants (SV) such as translocations, inversions, deletions, and other genomic rearrangements can contribute significantly to genetic and phenotypic variability across many species. The role of SV has been ...
  • Unveiling the transcriptional and cellular landscape of age across human tissues 

    Ripoll-Cladellas, Aida; G.P. van der Wijst, Monique; Melé, Marta (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    As the aging population grows progressively around the globe, the need to research and develop strategies to healthy aging is ever more critical and takes on new urgency1. Primary hallmarks of aging include cell autonomous ...
  • A machine learning based wall model for LES of turbulent flows 

    Radhakrishnan, Sarath; Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol (2021-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The trubulent flow of fluids is still an enigma for mathematicians and engineers alike. The partial differential equation that reperesents the flow of fluids does not have an analytical solution for turbulent regimes. ...
